The New Jersey Devils extended their winning streak to two with a 3-1 win over the Nashville Predators at the Prudential Center. Rookie defenseman Damon Severson returned to the lineup after missing 11 weeks with a fractured left ankle which occurred on December 15th. With the win, the red and black improve to 27-27-10 with 64 points in the Eastern Conference. The team moves to seven points behind the eighth and final playoff spot which is held by the Boston Bruins. Leading the way for New Jersey were defenders Adam Larsson and Eric Gelinas who both scored a goal. After trading away Marek Zidlicky, the red and black moved Peter Harrold to forward in order to make room for Severson's return to the lineup.
