The Devils host the Bruins on Tuesday at 7 p.m.

According to STATS...

  • The Devils have not outdrawn their opponents at the faceoff circle in any of their last eight games, the longest active streak in the NHL. New Jersey previously lost more faceoffs than it won in nine straight games earlier this season from November 28 -- December 15.
  • Saturday's win at Toronto gave the Bruins 40+ wins for the third season in a row. It marks the first time Boston has won at least 40 games in three consecutive seasons since 1981-84.
  • Andy Greene scored one of his four goals this season in a loss to the Bruins on December 20. Greene's four career goals versus Boston are tied with Carolina for his second most versus any opponent (6 vs. Pittsburgh).
  • Zdeno Chara eclipsed his goal total from last season with his ninth of the year Saturday against the Maple Leafs. The goal was Chara's third game-winner this season, matching his career high done five previous times.
  • Damon Severson led New Jersey with 24:25 of ice time in Sunday's loss at Carolina. It was the second time this season Severson has been on the ice for 24+ minutes, after skating a season-high 24:31 against the Bruins on January 8.
  • Tuukka Rask is 4-2-1 in his last eight games against the Devils with a 1.40 goals against average and .953 save percentage. Since 2009-10, Rask leads all goaltenders with his .953 save percentage versus New Jersey (minimum 8 GP).

Damon Severson made his return to the?Devils Tuesday night in his first game since Dec. 15, and it felt good (Fire and Ice, March 3).

?I felt pretty comfortable out there,? Severson said. ?I think that's the main thing with me as a player and as a person, just being confident on and off the ice and just doing my thing no matter what. The coaches put their trust in me and the management put their trust in me to put me right back in the fire and I just tried to do my thing out there and have some fun.?

Severson, who missed time with a fractured left ankle, ended the night playing 16:21 in the Devils 3-1 victory?over the Predators while posting two shots on goal. Interim coach Lou Lamoriello was happy with the rookie's return performance.

The Devils could use a goal scorer like Reid Boucher, especially the way he's playing right now.

The Sarnia Sting forward -- and Devils draft prospect -- scored six goals last week, four of which came in Sarnia's 13-3 victory over the Erie Otters last Thursday.

Boucher is up to 57 goals -- 15 better than Plymouth's Vincent Trocheck. The 19-year old's 85 points is good for fifth in the OHL. He's 13 points behind Nick Cousins.
