The New Jersey Devils (15-21-5) are on the road for a meeting with the Tampa Bay Lightning (28-10-5) Thursday. Puck drop at Amalie Arena is set for 7 p.m. ET.

The Devils have dropped five of their last six games, including a 5-1 home loss to the Dallas Stars Tuesday. New Jersey has had trouble generating offense in many of its recent outings, scoring 2 or fewer goals in four of its last five games. The Devils did light the lamp for 7 goals in the other game, but that notably came across a rookie goaltender making his first career start.

The Lightning have won five of their last six games, including a 7-1 road victory at the San Jose Sharks Saturday. Tampa Bay, quite the opposite of New Jersey, has been generating a lot of offense and has scored 3 or more goals in all five of its victories across the six-game span.
