It might not count in the standings, but tonight we're finally treated to some Devils hockey for the first time since their April 27th loss at Madison Square Garden.

For some players, this is their first major chance to prove that they belong on the roster. For others, it's a chance to get some live game action and work towards being ready for the season.

The Devils have already played division foes in the Islanders and Flyers, but Friday's game against old friend Adam Oates and his new team, the Washington Capitals, certainly deserves a special shade of highlighter on the calendar. Besides facing their former assistant coach and a very good one at that, Oates' Caps are 0-3-0 after Thursday night.

Old friends Pete DeBoer, left, and Adam Oates, right, ready for a reunion Friday night.

In the Devils' locker room Thursday afternoon, the "D" appeared to be the phrase of the day.

Tonight the New Jersey Devils take on the San Jose Sharks at the Prudential Center. Now these two don't usually see each other more than once or twice a year. In the two games last season, both teams won one game . However, both teams have made major changes since last season. The Sharks became a more defensive team with the acquisitions of Brent Burns, Jim Vandermeer and former Devil Colin White. The Devils became a younger team with the loss of Brian Rolston and Colin White.

I expect this game to be a very close game if the Devils can avoid the penalty box. The Sharks are a very good powerplay team. They thrive off of it. The Sharks can score from any where on the power play. One off the things they knew they needed to improve was the point on the powerplay hence the reason why Brent Burns is a Shark. Last season the only defensive threat on the powerplay was Dan Boyle. That is no more. Burns is going to be logging a lot of time on the powerplay.
