Who: New Jersey Devils (12-12-1; 25pts; 4th in ATL Division) at Toronto Maple Leafs (15-10-2; 32pts; 2nd in NE Division)

What: Game #28 of the Leafs 2011-12 season.

Where: Home sweet Home

When: 7:00pm on SN, MSG

Why: Because Phil Kessel needs some goals, and Brodeur is in net

-The Leafs return home for the second meeting of the season between the Devils and Toronto. The quick turnaround from last night's victory may or may not play a factor. So far this season, the Leafs are 1-2 in back-to-back games.

- The Devils have lost four straight, giving up a combined 17 goals in the process. $100m man Ilya Kovalchuk has only 6 goals and is a -11 so far on the year. Captain Zach Parise, Kovalchuk's linemate, has only 7 goals in an important contract year.

- Martin Brodeur has been worse than Jonas Gustavsson.

-James Reimer, however, is making his first home start since returning from injury. He'll probably score a hat trick tonight.

- Mikhail Grabovski is expected to miss his second straight game due to a family matter. Lines should remain the same from last night.
