Last night was certainly a sight for the sore eyes of all New Jersey Devils fans.
The Devils looked good, like really good. Didn’t they? Maybe it was the presence of Ryan Graves, despite playing for Pittsburgh, that made New Jersey look like their former selves.
Regardless, the Devils were a puck-pressuring machine that capitalized on their chances at all strengths. One can only hope it’s the kick in the behind they needed to completely turn things around for the remainder of the season.
Elsewhere, despite the win, the Devils lose another key forward, Sergei Bobrovsky’s breaking the rules (and we support him), and details emerge on a key injury in Colorado.
Let’s do that hockey.
