David Clarkson sees Tuesday's contest against the New York Rangers as a must win.
"It's like playoff hockey and this is a must win for both teams," Clarkson said. "You look at the standings and where we are. Every game is so important. Everybody is close." The Devils are four points ahead of the Rangers, but have played in two more games. Overall, New Jersey is in seventh place with 32 points and their playoff spot is far from secure.
