There will be plenty of defense tonight at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., because, as Mark Everson in the New York Post points out, the Boston Bruins and New Jersey Devils are one and two, respectively, in the Eastern Conference in goals allowed heading into the game.

Meanwhile, even in these terrible economic times, New Jersey owner Jeff Vanderbeek expects his club to be profitable for the second straight year, according to Rich Chere in The Star-Ledger.
