Game Recaps

  • New Jersey Devils v. Carolina Hurricanes – 8p ET – Game 2
    • In Carolina the New Jersey Devils would look to bounce back against the Hurricanes, and after a scoreless first period Jesperi Kotkaniemi would score a pair of goals to open the scoring for the Canes, and late in the second period Jordan Staal and Martin Necas would score to give the Canes the 4-0 lead. Then in the third period the Devils would replace Akira Schmid in the net with Vitek Vanecek which would lead to a Miles Wood goal, but goals from Jordan Martinook and Stefan Noesen would give the Hurricanes the dominating 6-1 victory over the Devils to take the 2-0 series lead.
