Game Recap:

After a crushing defeat on Wednesday night against the Ottawa Senators, the New Jersey Devils look to rebound tonight against the Pittsburgh Penguins at “The Rock”. Devils center Travis Zajac would give his team a 1-0 lead. Jesper Bratt would make a pass towards the front of the net behind the goal line to give Zajac the opportunity to burry the shot behind Penguins goalie Matt Murray. After the first period, The Devils would take a 1-0 lead.

In the second period, Blake Coleman would pick off a pass in his own defensive zone and take it down the other way and fire a shot at Penguins goalie Matt Murray. Coleman would follow the initial shot which Murray misplayed and put the puck in the back of the net. Coleman’s goal would be the only goal of the period for both teams. After two periods, the New Jersey Devils would take a 2-0 lead heading into the third and final period.

New Jersey in the third period had to hold on against the Penguins as they threw everything they had at the Devils. Pittsburgh did pull within one goal as Penguins defenseman Jack Johnson would beat MacKenzie Blackwood upstairs with a wrist shot from the left faceoff circle. Fortunately for the Devils, they were able to hang on and get the 2-1 victory! Tomorrow night, the Devils go back on the road to take on the Montreal Canadiens.
