An Oppurtunity Like no Other

By: Brian Deakyne

With the Devils in the midst of a tailspin, and with a couple taunting injuries, including Patrik Elias who was recently was place on Injured Reserve with a concussion, head coach Jacques Lemaire has called up wingers Patrick Davis and Nick Palmieri to provide a spark for New Jersey, who has lost the last three games (Pheonix, Colorado, and the New York Islanders).

For Davis and Palmieri, this is much more than just the possibility of a one or two game stint.

On a team that, despite being in first place (32-14-1, 1st in Atlantic Division), New Jersey is looking for a spark after seeing Elias leave the ice on a stretcher.
Playing alongside Parise and Zajac, Davis, who has made one appearance in his career, has the opportunity to unleash his skills, sharing ice time with such valued playmakers.

On the other hand, Palmieri, who will make his NHL debut, will look to get comfortable playing with the sure-handed captain, Jamie Langenbrunner.

Whatever way you choose to look at it, these Devils prospects may just be seeing the few games that's expected until the team gets healthy--but don't be too surprised if these kids are here to stay.
