The Devils put on their proverbial work boots today as they look to turn the page on last night's overtime loss to Florida and focus on their game against Tampa tomorrow night. As I mentioned in my post-game blog last night, one of the main points of emphasis was getting more shots on net and sustaining an offensive attack.
There was also a big focus on special teams. Last night they were 0-2 with the man advantage with zero shots on goal. Passes weren't crisp, players were out of position, everything just seemed a bit off. They had one of the more effective power plays last season and added more firepower to it this offseason, but all the new faces means it's going to take some time for it to click this year.
On that note, why not add another name to the mix? PA Parenteau, who is known for his abilities to create room and get his nose dirty in the crease for those rebound opportunities, saw some time in practice on the power play. So, look for that to happen tomorrow.
