The New Jersey Devils are sinking fast.
Sitting at ninth in the Eastern Conference, the team is two points behind divisional rivals the New York Rangers and Islanders, who currently occupy the seventh and eighth seeds, respectively. And right now, New Jersey doesn't seem capable of closing that gap.
The Devils have lost seven-straight games and are a putrid 2-4-4 in their last 10 games played. They are still in contention for a playoff spot, but things need to turn around quickly as they only have nine games left on their schedule.
It's not out of the question that the Devils turn things around, but that would require some serious contribution from players that have been snoozing lately.
Here are three Devils that need to heat up to give their team a chance at the postseason.
