Game Recap:

Good Evening Devils fans! Tonight your New Jersey Devils head into Manhattan to take on the New York Rangers as the “Hudson River Rivalry” continues. The first period sure showed a lot of offensive flair as both teams combined to score five goals. The Rangers got on the board first as Artemi Panarin blasted a shot it from the right faceoff circle for his twenty fourth goal of the season. Moments laters while short handed, the Devils tied the game on a short handed goal from Kevin Rooney. Tony D’Angelo and Chris Kreider each scored the other goals for the Rangers. Blake Coleman would tip in a Damon Severson shot to get the Devils within one goal. After the first period, the Rangers would lead 3-2 over the Devils.

Blake Coleman would score again and tie things up almost midway through period two. Coleman now has fifteen goals on the season. However, things would go downhill for the Devils the rest of the way. Tony D’Angelo would complete the hat trick at even strength and on the power play. New Jersey pulled started MacKenzie Blackwood in favor or backup goalie Louis Domingue. The Rangers took a 5-3 lead going into the final period. 

For good measure, the Rangers added on another goal as Jesper Fast would score his seventh goal of the season. the New York Rangers defeated the New Jersey Devils 6-3. The Devils are back in action Saturday night as they take on the league leading Washington Capitals
