New Jersey held on after originally having a 3-0 lead to beat Toronto 3-2 and (barely) keep playoff hopes alive. It was nice to see some offense from rookie Jon Merril, who finished with a goal and an assist. Big David Clarkson finished scoreless in his return to Newark.
Five points out of a playoff spot with ten games remaining, the Devils will most likely need to go 9-1 to secure a playoff berth.
The Devils next game comes on Thursday against the Phoenix Coyotes in New Jersey.
