NEW JERSEY — Mike Sullivan is intrigued by a veteran goalie and a player who could help the New Jersey Devil get back to the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
As a coach, he’s also looking to add some youth.
And he has some big names that he believes can help in the process.
The Devils, who defeated the New York Rangers in six games Sunday, will play host to the Ottawa Senators in a game that will mark the first time the Devils play the Senators in nearly two decades.
They will also face the Toronto Maple Leafs in their first meeting.
The two teams met for the first and only time in 2016.
The Devils defeated the Senators 2-1.
The Senators’ Sergei Bobrovsky scored two goals in the second period for the Senators, who won 2-0 on Thursday.
The goal came on a power play by Senators defenseman Jason Demers.
