Devils 6 - Tampa Bay 1

I have just returned from tonight's game, so I will be brief in my analysis of tonight's game. Here is the recap which has all the links to box scores and super stats at

The Devils played all 60 minutes. All 60 minutes.

The Devils played defense solidly all game, both at even strength and on the penalty kill (despite giving up the one power play goal).

The Devils hustled on every shift and pounced on the Lightning's mistakes.

The Devils beat up on the Lightning players along the boards, winning many of the battles for possession on offense and defense.

The Devils put many shots on Johan Holmqvist (and Marc Denis!) and were successful in beating him off a counter-attack, in front, and from the point.

Dainius Zubrus was the third star with 2 assists; John Madden was the second star with 1 goal and 3 assists; and Jay Pandolfo scored a hat trick and earned an assist. Again. Jay Pandolfo scored a hat trick.

The Devils won 6 to 1. Their first win at the Prudential Center and a blow-out at that.

This may be premature but I don't care at this point. The Devils are back.


You know what I noticed about this game... Johnny O. did not drop his stick, not even once!
