The Devils return home for a matchup with the Maple Leafs on Wednesday night at 7 p.m.

According to STATS...

  • The Devils dropped their third in a row with Monday's 4-0 loss at the Sharks. It took until the 18th game of the season for New Jersey to be shut out, its most games into the season since 2012-13 when it took until the 37th game.
  • The Maple Leafs had 30 takeaways in Tuesday night's loss to the Hurricanes. It was the most takeaways by one team in a single game since the Blackhawks had 31 against the Ducks on February 12, 2013.
  • Former Maple Leaf P.A. Parenteau has 14 points (4g, 10a) in 14 career games against Toronto. Parenteau has finished with a rating of +1 or better in each of his last six skates versus the Maple Leafs, tied for the longest active streak by a Leafs opponent.

The New Jersey Devils are limping home to the Prudential Center after a 1-3-0 Western Conference road trip.

New Jersey (9-6-3) hosts the Toronto Maple Leafs on Wednesday riding a three-game losing streak and will be without leading scorer Taylor Hall (knee surgery) and forwards Kyle Palmieri (upper body) and Michael Cammalleri (personal).

The Devils could certainly use some firepower, especially on a moribund power-play that is 0-for-29 in their last nine games. New Jersey is 26th in the NHL with 2.22 goals per game and the power play ranks 28th at 11.9 percent.

Former Islanders and current Maple Leafs forward Matt Martin still wants his old team to do well in spite of him moving on elsewhere, reports Newsday's Arthur Staple. Martin, drafted by the Islanders in the fifth round in 2008, played six full seasons with the club. He signed a four-year, $10 million contract with Toronto over the summer, but that does not mean he does not care about his old teammates.

Though their matchup Saturday night is the last time the Toronto Maple Leafs and New Jersey Devils will play until the fall, maybe only one of them truly wants to win it.

While it's clear the Devils' players want to close with a victory - especially with this possibly being Patrik Elias' finale - the Maple Leafs could have a much better chance for the draft's top overall pick if they lose in New Jersey.

"Drafting for our organization is very important," said Mike Babcock, capping a dreadful first season behind Toronto's bench. "We've taken it on the chin all year so we can be set up for it. At the same time, we have to respect one another in the game and play it the right way."

The Islanders play the Toronto Maple Leafs for the final time this season on Monday at 7:30 p.m. at Air Canada Center. MSG Plus will have the TV broadcast and WHRU 88.7 FM and LI News Radio will have the radio call.

Monday's game holds significant importance to the Islanders if they're hoping to stay atop the Metropolitan Division.

The Islanders (42-21-4) are ahead of the New York Rangers by one point in the Metro. A win over the struggling Maple Leafs (26-35-5) would put them back ahead by three points in the standings heading into Tuesday night's game against the Blueshirts.

Tyler Kennedy will finally make his Islanders' debut tonight against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Kennedy was slated to play in Tuesday's overtime loss in Dallas, but at the last minute alerted the Islanders' coaching staff of an unspecified upper-body injury. Kennedy has been dealing with injures this season and has dealt with a shoulder ailment. There has been no official word on what the specifics of the injury were that forced him to return to Long Island early last week for evaluation.

"I don't know if was the travel, the stress of that, just a couple different things," Kennedy told Newsday on Saturday. "Just an unfortunate thing, all I can really say about it."

The Islanders have found ways to win, especially when the score is close.

On Thursday the Isles defeated the Toronto Maple Leafs by the score of 3-2 for their third straight win. It was also the third straight game they defeated an opponent by one goal. The Islanders are 22-4-1 in one-goal games this season.

"These are the ways you win hockey games this time of year and in the playoffs," John Tavares said after the win. "So for us it's good to see us handle these games a lot better than we did last year."

The Islanders host the Toronto Maple Leafs at 7 p.m. at Nassau Coliseum. MSG Plus will have the television broadcast, while WRHU 88.7 FM and LI News Radio 103.9 FM will carry the radio broadcast.?The Islanders (35-18-1) will try to keep the Toronto Maple Leafs woes going tonight when they host them in Uniondale.

The Maple Leafs (23-28-4) have won just twice in their last 17 games dating back to January 2. They fell to the New York Rangers on Tuesday at the Air Canada Center. The loss prompted Leafs head coach Peter Horachek to tell reporters that his team's "give a [expletive] meter needs to be higher."

Despite Toronto's struggles, the Islanders aren't taking them lightly.

Cal Clutterbuck has missed the previous two games for the Islanders, but he will return to the lineup tonight against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The Islander forward's return became imminent when the team returned Harry?Zolnierczyk to AHL Bridgeport earlier in the morning. Clutterbuck will not rejoin the fourth line, where he has played a majority of the season. Instead he will play alongside Brock Nelson and Nikolay Kulemin.

The decision to move Clutterbuck up allows for Colin McDonald to stay on the fourth line with Casey Cizikas and Matt Martin.

It was bad on Tuesday night. A lot of people were calling Islander wins, but the Toronto Maple Leafs stunned the Isles defeating them 5-2. It was the Islanders worst loss in their first six games this year and a tough one to swallow for many fans in Islander country.

For the game story click here and for the sidebar story click here.

Below are some quick thought's on Tuesday's loss to the Leafs:

  • This was definitely Jaroslav Halak's worst game in blue and orange. He has put up stellar performances in his last several starts, but the Leafs found ways to beat him and eventually drove him from the net. Halak surrendered five goals on 23 shots in forty minutes of work. All five goals seemed to beat him on his blocker side.
  • The second period... enough said right? It was the Islanders worst so far and was the reason they lost. The Islanders gave up four unanswered goals in the second period and looked flat footed. In the first period it seemed as though the Isles took their foot off the gas after Nick Leddy scored at 2:48. The Islanders didn't sugar coat their play in the second. They know they need to be better and that there are no excuses for what happened. Whatever adjustments need to be made, need to be made so that this doesn't happen again.
  • I liked Nikolay Kulemin playing on the top line. Jack Capuano was mixing up lines and that combination was one of them. Kulemin is very underrated, as Rich Dias pointed out, just like Frans Nielsen. At the very least it may be worth keeping Kulemin there to start the game against Boston.
  • Cal clutterbuck paired with Brock Nelson and Ryan Strome did not click for me. Clutterbuck did his thing by drawing the Leafs into take several penalties, but there didn't seem to be much chemistry between the three. Capuano hinted at changes to the lineup being made, so maybe Clutterbuck is moved again. We will see.
  • The Power play looked better on Tuesday. They did capitalize on one opportunity and the puck movement was good by them. Unfortunately they went 1-for-6 with the man-advantage.
  • The penalty kill was also better. They went 4-for-4 and kept the Leafs power play unit at bay.
  • Thomas Hickey left the game after getting his face cut by a skate. Luckily he is Ok, confirming he was via twitter on Wednesday morning.

Down six points with just six games left, it's time for the Devils to start helping themselves.

It's going to take an awful lot to get the Devils into the playoffs.

New Jersey clearly can't get into the tournament without winning some games. It also hasn't gotten much help lately.

It's getting late fast for the Devils.

New Jersey's 5-4 loss to Boston Wednesday leaves it in dire straits. The Devils trail the three-way tie for sixth by four points with only eight games left.

The only solace New Jersey can take is it will have destiny in its own hands. The Devils will meet Ottawa Friday in a crucial affair at Prudential Center. Three of New Jersey's final eight will be against the Rangers and Sens.

The Devils are down to nine games to make a postseason run.

New Jersey trails the eighth-placed Rangers by just two points with 17 days left. The Devils are four points behind the two-way tie for sixth between Ottawa and the Islanders.

The Isles and Senators seem to be going in opposite directions. Ottawa's lost five straight-- including a 3-2 loss in Tampa Bay on Tuesday. Meanwhile, the Islanders are 7-2-1 in their last 10 and knocked off Philadelphia 4-1 on Tuesday in Uniondale, N.Y.

The Toronto Maple Leafs, who seemingly doomed the Devils' playoff hopes just three days ago, have renewed life into New Jersey's postseason chances.

The Leafs' 4-3 regulation win over the Rangers at Air Canada Centre kept New Jersey within two points of both seventh and eighth in the East with only 18 regular-season days remaining.

With New Jersey idle again tonight, the team and fans can root for the Flyers and Lightning. Philadelphia, still clinging to faint-playoff life, will be on Long Island for a date with the Isles. Tampa Bay, meanwhile, will try to deal the reeling Senators their fifth-straight loss.

The Devils' frustration level is rising.

On a night when the Jets, Rangers, Islanders and Capitals all won, New Jersey could only muster one goal in a 2-1 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday at Prudential Center.

"There's some frustration in not winning," Devils coach Pete DeBoer said. "We have to find a way to win games ... that's where the frustration lies."

Martin Brodeur has been given the start Tuesday in Toronto as the Devils hope to end their 4 game skid. Brodeur was pulled in his last start against the Minnesota Wild after giving 3 first period goals. That was 1st period was the 2nd time in 2 straight games where Brodeur had given up 3 first period goals.

Hopefully he doesn't give up 3 again in Toronto otherwise it'll be 5 straight losses and 4 straight losses on the road.
