New Jersey Devils (7-10-4 18pts) vs Detroit Red Wings (7-14-3 17pts)
The New Jersey Devils return to the Garden State to host the Detroit Red Wings on their second game of a back to back set. Last night the Devils fell at the hands of the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-1. Tonight is also the Devils turn to host “Hockey Fights Cancer” which is a league wide initiative to honor those who battle or have battled this terrible disease. New Jersey wore their “Hockey Fights Cancer” jerseys before their matchup between the Red Wings in warmups.
Speaking of the game, it was a scoreless first period between the two teams. It wasn’t without a lack of effort as the Devils would outshoot the Wings 15-5. The game would start off scoreless going into the second period.
It would be the Red Wings who would get on the board first as Taro Hirose would deflect in a shot from defenseman Madison Bowey to give the Red Wings as 1-0 lead. However, that would be the only goal the Wings would score for the rest of the game. Kyle Palmieri for the Devils would get his team going as his second period goal kickstarted his team scoring five unanswered goals.
New Jersey would also get goals in the third period from Will Butcher, Blake Coleman twice, and an empty net goal by Taylor Hall. Final score of tonight’s game was 5-1 in favor of the Devils. New Jersey is off until Tuesday as they welcome in the Minnesota Wild.
