New approach suiting Hynes' Devils

by Staff Writer / New Jersey Devils

The Devils weren't on the ice Monday, but Coach John Hynes and his coaching staff used the day off to get fitted for some new threads.

The coaches – Hynes along with assistants Geoff Ward and Alain Nasreddine, and goaltending coach Chris Terreri – joined Ken Daneyko for a custom suit fitting with Andrea Ravazzolo at Prudential Center.

While Hynes won't be walking the runaway any time soon, his Devils have surged to fourth in the Metropolitan Division with a record of 8-5-1. They look to sweep a three-game homestand when they host St. Louis tonight.

Hynes' systems are paying dividends, but the Devils' new era began in earnest over the summer.

“You could tell there was a hunger and a desire, to really work, to dig in, to accept the changes and I think the players were coming into a motivated group that wanted to win and work hard," Hynes told Tara Sullivan of NorthJersey.com. "And even though we got off to a little bit of a slow start, there was belief in what we were doing, if we won or lost. I think the players developed that mind-set, so that’s allowed us to be the same group every day. That’s been a big reason we’ve been able to have some success here lately, and that’s something we need to continue to have as a mind-set as we move forward.”
