Jets vs Devils prediction

This game is probably more valuable to the Devils, as they're fighting to keep their slim playoff hopes alive. However, we're getting the Jets and a cheap price, and it's hard to turn down one of the best teams in the NHL at prices like this. The Jets are one of the most consistent teams in the league, and that includes a 21-10-3 record on the road. The Jets outscored the Devils 12-4 in the last two meetings. The Devils' offense has been a major letdown these last couple of weeks. I'll gladly side with the Jets and the cheap price.
