Devils take on the Stars for the first time since the 2nd game of '06-'07, when the Stars beat the Devs, 3-1. This is their first venture to the Garden State since 2003.
The Stars come into tonight's game with consecutive one goal wins over teams from New York on goals by Mike Modano. It'll be interesting to see if Marty Turco gets the call over the hot Mike Smith, whom Cat at Untypical Girls loves so much, she got a jersey of him. Not since Patricia from 2MA has there been such backup goaltender love. Anyway, Smith has played well when given a chance and, let's face it...we blow chodes when we take on backups!
