3/23 Postgame: Leafs Top Devils 4-2

Devil Fall to Leafs in Toronto: Three Things We Learned

Postgame: Leafs top Devils 4-2

3/23 Postgame: Leafs top Devils 4-2

Hear from the Devils following the clubs 4-2 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs

  • 01:02 •

The Devils lost, 4-2, tonight to the Toronto Maple Leafs at Air Canada Center tonight despite goals by John Moore, including one on the power play. Here's what we learned: 

1) After the game, Moore said he was the beneficiary of some lucky bounces tonight, but he also put himself in position to take advantage of those bounces by taking seven shots - two of which missed the net, three were saved by the goalie and two found their way over the goal line. The defenseman also blocked two shots, forced a turnover, and dished out a hit in 21:03 minutes of TOI. 

2) The Devils put up a strong battle against the Leafs (who are battling for playoff positioning) in the opening forty minutes of play. At his postgame press conference, Coach John Hynes expressed satisfaction with the effort put forth from the Devils' youth, who showed off their consistency in back-to-back games. Hynes did however, send a message to the vets in the locker room, pushing for a complete sixty-minute effort. Expect the Devils veterans to ratchet up their compete-level as they enter this weekend's contests.

Blandisi-Quenneville Chemistry Lifts NJD over NYR

Friendship from Albany to New Jersey pays dividends for Devils

Quenneville-Blandisi chemistry lifts NJD over NYR

John Quenneville and Joseph Blandisi explain how their on- and off-ice chemistry led to two goals against the Rangers

  • 01:24 •

The Devils 2016-17 season is winding down in Jersey, but there has been no quit in a resilient roster who showed their grit, defeating the rival Rangers 3-2 in OT on Tuesday. New Jersey is building for the future by giving the young guys from Albany a chance to excel at the NHL-level. Last night, the kids delivered. Although Pavel Zacha extended his consecutive points-streak to five games, and Miles Wood and Blake Coleman dropped the gloves for two electric bouts, the night belonged to Joseph Blandisi and John Quenneville.

Tweet from @NJDevils: .@_themagicbullet on chemistry with @jaquinder88: "It's a dream to play with one of your best friends. We want to be a dynamic duo."

The close friendship between Blandisi and Quenneville is no secret to the Devils locker room. The duos chemistry on-ice is a direct reflection of their relationship off, making Tuesday's victory a storybook ending for the young forwards. Appearing in his sixth game with the Devils, Quenneville lit the lamp for his first career NHL goal during the first period. Blandisi, who had the primary assist on the play, couldn't hide his excitement for his best friend after the game. "It was a long time coming for him. He sleeps and breathes hockey. Just to be called up and do it together, it was almost like fate. For me to give the pass to him for his first goal, it couldn't have been scripted any better."

Blandisi and John Quenneville each had a goal and an assist, Taylor Hall scored, and Cory Schneider made 38 saves for the Devils (27-33-12), who won for the second time in the past 14 games (2-10-2).

The Devils avoided a season sweep of the four-game series with the Rangers.  

"We didn't want to get swept by that team," Schneider said. "It may not mean anything in the standings or in terms of the big picture for the season, but it was a big win for us to not get swept by them."
