The second episode of the Devils Official Podcast is forward Miles Wood. 

Wood brought an interesting perspective to the podcast, talking about his hometown Manchester, Massachusetts, a small town with a population of just over 5,000 known for being a popular filming location for some major motion pictures. 

"There was one movie, The Departed with Sandra Bullock was actually shot in my friend's house, which is kind of cool," said Wood. "It's a great spot to be, so I guess people are drawn to it through that way. And then there's an Adam Sandler movie. Grown-ups."

BLOG: Severson 'We need to put together a full game'

"Our on-ice play has to get going"

by Sara Giles saratgiles / NewJerseyDevils.com

It hasn't been an ideal start to the new season for the New Jersey Devils who are currently 0-3-2 and on the search for the first win. Defenseman Damon Severson said that the guys are all saying what needs to be said in the locker room, but their on-ice performance needs to get better.

"Our on-ice play has to get going, there's only so much that can be said. At this point guys are saying what needs to be said, guys are saying we need to battle, we need to dial it in. What's said is said, now it's a matter of just taking action. We need to put together a full group of games here, we need to put together a full game. As long as we control how we play and do the right things I think we're going to be successful more often than not," said Severson.

BLOG: Putting Hughes with Coleman and Simmonds

Jack Hughes is slated to skate on a line with Blake Coleman and Wayne Simmonds versus Philadelphia

by Chris Wescott TheChrisWescott / NewJerseyDevils.com

Opening up more space for Jack Hughes on the ice seems like a good idea.

The highly skilled rookie center now has two linemates who can do just that, but also provide a scoring touch of their own. Hughes has been skating with Blake Coleman and Wayne Simmonds of late, a likely trio versus Philadelphia on Wednesday.

Head Coach John Hynes explained the reasoning behind the combination.

"I think with all the lines we've divided up with some new guys and/or younger guys with some experienced players.

"I think Blake and Wayne are bigger, stronger, competitive guys. They're heavier on pucks and in the offensive zone they get stops in on the forecheck. And that's something we're working with Jack to be a little bit better and I think that hopefully should allow them to play a little bit more on offense and then you know, both those guys are responsible in the in the defensive zone, so give him a little bit of help in those areas. I think with the two types of players he's with, it should be able to help get pucks back and be able to play more with the puck than he has as of late. And then on his side, there's got to be a growth in his defensive game when he gets in the defensive zone."
