Game Preview

The New Jersey Devils are looking to steady their game, and they will have to do so without one of their top forwards, Timo Meier, when they visit the Washington Capitals on Wednesday.

The Devils had their three-game winning streak end Saturday with a 5-2 road setback against the Boston Bruins. Prior to the streak, New Jersey had lost three straight after winning five of their previous six.

“Trying to find a level of consistency in all three zones,” Devils coach Lindy Ruff said. “Offensively, trying to find a groove. Defensively, being locked into better quality of play. We’ve had our moments. We’ve been better of late, but I still think we can get better.”
