The Devils and Falcons are both trying to get into the playoffs. They meet for a 7 pm game Friday at MassMutual Center.
With nine wins in their last 12 games, the Devils have done nearly everything they’ve had to do to earn the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. They are still on the outside looking in, but will have to register at least one point Saturday against the Wolf Pack at Times Union Center (5 pm) and still get help.
Paul Thompson’s natural hat trick lifted the Devils to a 4-1 victory against the Senators Saturday at Times Union Center. Matt Lorito setup all three tallies as the Devils claim their sixth win in the seven contests.
With nine games remaining, the Devils are making a push for one of the final spots in the Calder Cup Playoffs. This week, they host Manchester Wednesday and Binghamton Saturday and travel to Springfield Friday..
