The Devils look to snap their 10-game losing streak as they host the Flyers at the Prudential Center tonight at 7 p.m. ET.

According to STATS:

  • The Devils have beaten Philadelphia twice this season by a combined margin of 8-1. New Jersey has thus improved to 13-3-3 in the series since the beginning of 2013-14, during which time the Devils have outscored the Flyers at even strength, 42-22.
  • The Flyers ended a three-game losing streak with a 4-0 win over the Penguins on Wednesday which matched Philadelphia's largest margin of victory this season. It was the Flyers' fourth team shutout of 2016-17.
  • The Devils' game against Winnipeg on Tuesday was postponed due to Winter Storm Stella and will be made up on March 28. The storm denied New Jersey an opportunity to end its 10-game losing streak (0-8-2), which is tied for the second-longest skid in franchise history (14 straight losses by the Kansas City Scouts in 1975-76).

According to STATS...

  • The Panthers topped 100 points for the first time as they claimed their first Atlantic Division title last season. Florida ranked seventh overall with 2.44 goals against per game, just barely edging out 1996-97 (2.45) for the fewest in franchise history.
  • The Devils saw a six-win improvement last season but still missed out on the playoffs for the fourth season in a row in 2015-16. The four-year playoff drought is the second-longest in team history following a nine-year absence from 1978-79 through 1986-87.
  • Jaromir Jagr was second on the Panthers in both goals (27) and assists (39), but led the team with 66 points. It was Jagr's 18th season with 65+ points, tied with Ron Francis and Wayne Gretzky for the second most in NHL history (Gordie Howe leads with 20).
  • Adam Henrique and Kyle Palmieri tied with a team-high 30 goals last season. It marked the first time the Devils had multiple 30-goal scorers since the trio of Ilya Kovalchuk (37), Zach Parise (31), and David Clarkson (30) in 2011-12.
  • Roberto Luongo was tied for fourth in the NHL last season with 35 wins, matching his franchise record from 2005-06. Luongo's six seasons with at least 35 wins ranks sixth all-time, trailing only Marc-Andre Fleury (7) and Henrik Lundqvist (7) for the most among active goalies.
  • Cory Schneider set a new career-high last season with 27 wins, the most by a Devil since Martin Brodeur's 31 in 2011-12. Schneider led all NHL goaltenders last season with a save percentage of .920 or better in 37 games.

  • The Devils have won 12 of their last 15 home games against the Lightning, despite both teams scoring exactly 12 power-play goals over the stretch.
  • The Devils, who have lost four of their last five games, have seen three of their last five games decided by at least three goals.
  • While the Lightning have scored just nine of their 36 power-play goals on the road this season, the Devils have scored on 40 percent (10/25) of their power plays at home since January 21.
  • The last time the Lightning faced the Devils (last April 9 at home), both Nikita Kucherov and Ondrej Palat had a trio of assists, which marked just the second time since the 2011-12 season that the Lightning had a pair of skaters with at least three assists in a game (also December 31, 2014 vs. Sabres -- Tyler Johnson and Palat, both three).
  • Kyle Palmieri scored his eighth power-play goal of the season at home on Tuesday night. Over his first five NHL seasons, Palmieri scored a total of just seven power-play goals.
  • Steven Stamkos has scored a goal in each of his last four games -- tied (with Toronto's Josh Leivo) for the longest active goal streak in the NHL.

The Devils return from the All-Star break to host the Rangers at 7 p.m.

According to STATS...

  • The Rangers have won each of their last four road games versus the Devils, tied for their longest road win streak versus New Jersey all-time (also from March 7, 1975 -- October 8, 1976 and from March 22, 1984 -- January 18, 1985).
  • The Devils enter the second half with 112 goals scored on the season, fourth fewest in the NHL. New Jersey has been outscored, 114-112, on the season (not including shootout goals); the Devils have not made the postseason with a negative goal differential on the season since making the playoffs in 1987-88 despite being outscored, 296-295.
  • The Rangers went 6-2-1 on the road through November 21, but are just 3-10-2 on the road since, being outscored by 18 (53-35) over the 15 games. New York went 28-11-2 (.707) on the road last season but is just 9-12-3 (.438) in road games this season -- the largest decline in road win percentage by any team from last season to this one.
  • Mats Zuccarello has scored 18 goals in 49 games played this season, one shy of his career-high (had 19 in 77 games played in 2013-14). However, Zuccarello scored just two goals in January (his fewest in any month this season), and has not scored a goal on the road since December 30 at Tampa Bay.
  • Derick Brassard had two goals and three assists versus Buffalo on January 25, his last game played before the All-Star break. Brassard's five-point game was the first five-point regular-season game by a New York Ranger since Ryan Callahan had five points versus the Flyers on March 6, 2011.
  • Kyle Palmieri has recorded seven power-play goals in 50 games played this season after totaling seven power-play goals through his first five career NHL seasons (in 198 games played). Palmieri's 20 goals, overall, and 35 points this season are each single-season career-highs, and his 15 assists are two shy of his career-high (17 in 2013-14).

Cory Schneider's high of being named to his first All-Star team this month has come with the low of a slump by New Jersey.

Schneider is doing his best to revive the injury-plagued Devils and can help them win consecutive games for the first time in more than two weeks while snapping a six-game losing streak against the visiting Calgary Flames on Tuesday night.

Despite Schneider's solid play in net, New Jersey (22-19-5) has taken a step back with losses in five of seven. The Devils sat within a point of the Metropolitan Division's third playoff spot before a cold stretch has dropped them four back with a week left before the All-Star break.

Forward Kyle Palmieri is taking a laidback approach to potentially receiving a contract extension from the New Jersey Devils (Jan. 11).

"I think it might get done before the end of the season and it might not. I'm not too worried about it," Palmieri, 24, told NJ.com on Monday. "I haven't put myself on any kind of a time line as far as that goes. Who knows? It could take until the end of June or July. I don't want to worry myself about it. ... That's basically purely my agent's job. Those kind of distractions aren't something I need. That kind of stuff takes care if itself."

After spending five seasons with the Ducks organization, Palmieri has scored 17 goals and recorded 14 assists through 43 games in his first season with the Devils. He can become a restricted free agent at season's end. 

"I love the guys on the team," Palmieri said. "In the locker room it's a fun bunch and so far it's been a great opportunity for me. ... I'm restricted, so it's not like there is anything looming over me or the organization that worries anybody."

  • Riley Sheehan potted his sixth goal of the season Saturday, giving him three markers in his last six skates (had three goals in first 36 games of the season). Sheehan lit the lamp once in the Wings' last game vs. the Devils, and has two goals in his last four skates against New Jersey overall.
  • Kyle Palmieri lit the lamp Saturday night, giving him four goals in his last five skates, and a team-high 17 on the season. Palmieri has a goal and a helper in each of his first two games against the Wings this season.

The Devils have only managed to string together back-to-back wins on three separate occasions since, most recently Nov. 12 and 14.

New Jersey has a chance to do it again after scoring twice in the third period to beat Carolina 3-2 on Tuesday.

"We talked about wanting to get back to our identity, play hard and play for each other," said defenseman David Schlemko, who scored the go-ahead goal with 3:05 remaining. "We thought our game was alright tonight and we stuck with it."

(AP) -- The Carolina Hurricanes hope a chance to rest allowed a sputtering offense the opportunity to recapture its prior form.

The New Jersey Devils look to keep breaking out of their scoring slump with another big offensive performance against the Hurricanes on Saturday night in Raleigh.

An offense that had been lethargic nearing the holiday break came to life in the Devils' most recent outing, as Kyle Palmieri, Jordin Tootoo and David Schlemko scored within a 2:12 span during the first period of Tuesday's 4-3 victory at Detroit. New Jersey (17-13-5) had managed five goals over its prior five outings and lost its previous three.
