Devils, Pens on NHL lines

The New Jersey Devils are absolutely sizzling and will be home favorites in NHL betting action Friday night against a Pittsburgh Penguins team that has fallen from the top of the Eastern Conference since losing Sidney Crosby to a concussion.

New Jersey is 18-2-2 since January 9, including a 9-0-1 run at the Prudential Center, and all of a sudden they find themselves playing their way back into a playoff race. The Devils still have a ways to go, but with Martin Brodeur healthy and Ilya Kovalchuk scoring at a healthy pace anything is possible.
