New Jersey (16-9-2) at Toronto (11-12-6) 7:00 p.m. EST
TORONTO (Ticker) -- The Toronto Maple Leafs have had a hard time
stringing together wins this season. A visit from the New
Jersey Devils may not help end that trend.
The Maple Leafs try to win three games in a row for the first
time this season when they face the Devils on Tuesday.
Defenseman Ian White snapped a tie with less than eight minutes
remaining in the third period to lift Toronto to a 2-1 victory
over the Buffalo Sabres on Friday.
Jeremy Williams also scored and Vesa Toskala made 24 saves for
the Maple Leafs, who won consecutive contests for just the
fourth time this season. Toronto has not posted three straight
victories since March.
New Jersey, which is 9-2-0 since November 15 despite the absence
of star goaltender Martin Brodeur, had a four-game win streak
snapped during a 4-2 loss to the Sabres on Saturday.
Patrik Elias scored for the third straight game and has nine
goals and 11 assists over his last 12 contests.
However, Elias, who ranks second on the Devils with 13 tallies,
has struggled against the Maple Leafs, finding the back of the
net twice in his last 16 games vs. Toronto.
