NEWARK, N.J.:- Last season, neither the Tampa Bay Lightning nor the New Jersey Devils reached the Stanley Cup playoffs.
However, two weeks into the 2017-18 season, both teams sit in first place in their divisions as they face off against one another Tuesday night at the Prudential Center.
For the Lightning (5-1-0), it is a quick trip back atop the standings, while for the Devils (4-1-0), this is rarified air for a club that finished last in the Eastern Conference a year ago and failed to reach the playoffs the past five years.
A 3-2 road win over the Detroit Red Wings on Monday extended the Lightning’s winning streak to four games as they became the first team in the league to reach 10 points.
Though it is early in the season, the Lightning better resemble the team that reached the 2015 Stanley Cup Finals and 2016 Eastern Conference finals than the injury-ravaged squad that failed to take part in the 2017 postseason.
The Devils may not have the star power of the Lightning, but they did win their first three games this season, scoring 16 goals in the victories. After losing to the Washington Capitals 5-2 at home on Friday, the Devils rebounded the next night with a 3-2 road win over the New York Rangers.
Cory Schneider will start in goal for the Devils on Tuesday. The Lightning did not name a starting goalie as of late Monday. Andrei Vasilevskiy picked up the win at Detroit, stopping 29 of 31 shots.
