"If you're not confident it's going to turn around then the season is probably lost already. So no one's thinking this can't be turned around. It simply has to," said Devils goaltender Cory Schneider. "I think anybody in here as a professional and as a prideful player, we've got to do everything we can as an individual and then as a group to make sure that you're pointed in the right direction and are part of the solution not continuing to be part of the problem."
The Devils found themselves down 1-0 just 16 seconds into the first period. Jonathan Huberdeau potted the go-ahead foal, assisted by Evgenii Dadonov and Aleksander Barkov.
But then the home team got a spark, rattling off four unanswered goals.
