Moore Scores Lone Goal in 3-1 Loss to Sens

12/17 Senators Edge Devils 3-1: 3 Things We Learned

by Julie Robenhymer / newjerseydevils.com

The Devils dropped their fifth straight with a 3-1 loss in Ottawa Saturday with the lone goal coming from John Moore. Here's what we learned: 
 
1) Moore's seeing-eye shot from the point was his fifth goal of the season - a career high in just 30 games so far this season. Michael Cammalleri assisted on the goal for his 600th NHL point. 

2) Keith Kinkaid stopped 28 shots and the two goals he allowed (third was an empty net) were deflections. He came up huge in the first period when the Senators peppered him with 15 shots and did a great job controlling the rebounds and smothering second and third opportunities. After the game, head coach John Hynes said Kinkaid gave the team a chance to win tonight and that it was possible he'd play again tomorrow as he has yet to make a decision on the starter, at least not publicly. 
 
3) You can play well enough to win a hockey game and still lose. After the game, Cammalleri stopped short of saying they deserved to win this game because it didn't show enough respect to their opponent, but felt that this game was a better reflection of the way they want to play. "If we keep playing like we did tonight, we'll win a lot of hockey games. It's just too bad it didn't happen for us tonight."
 
The Devils (12-12-6) get right back at it Sunday night against the Rangers (21-10-1) at Madison Square Garden.
