More to know: The Devils hold a seven-point lead of the Blue Jackets in the standings, and Columbus is on the outside looking in for the playoffs. The Devils are trying to replicate what the Blue Jackets did last season in making a big jump to the playoffs, but they know how easily things can swing in the other direction.
“Columbus is a good learning opportunity for us,” forward Taylor Hall said. “They had 108 points last year, and now they’re fighting for a playoff spot. So it can go just as quickly, and we have to really make sure we value the spot that we’re in and take advantage of it.”
