"As soon as [Tennyson] got it, I started calling for it and I was pretty sure he was going to give it to me," said Smith about his goal. "Kind of felt their guy coming a little bit and [I] made a bit of a move and just tried to put it on net, get it through and I have no idea how it went in. Think it kind of went off a couple of their guys and kind of got lucky."

GAME STORY: Devils 4, Red Wings 1

Four goals in four minutes helped the team beat the Red Wings 4-1. All of the Devils goals were scored in the third period.

by Catherine Bogart / NewJerseyDevils.com

NEWARK, NJ - Four goals in four minutes led the Devils to a 4-1 victory over the Detroit Red Wings on Thursday night. All of New Jersey's goals were scored in the third period.

The Devils were down 1-0 after Detroit scored a power play goal in the final minutes of the second period. Devils Captain Andy Greene sparked his teams offense, scoring five minutes into the final frame. From there, Wayne Simmonds would add two goals, and Jesper Bratt would add one to round out the scoring.

"After we scored that first goal we started really going," said Devils Interim Head Coach Alain Nasreddine. "Second period we had a bit of a response there with some physical play, we got some power play, so there was a lot of special teams in that second period."

"Not a good start at all. It was flat. We didn't have anyone going," said Blake Coleman. "Thankfully Blackwood had a good first and gave us a chance to stay in that game. It came a little bit in the second. And then the floodgates opened in the third."

"I liked the fact that they responded in the second period, and then eventually in the third period, was again we showed resiliency and found a way," said Nasreddine.
