The New Jersey Devils have found a home in first place in the Metropolitan Division, and a big reason is how they've played on the road.
Cory Schneider made 37 saves to help the Devils to a 2-0 victory against the Vancouver Canucks on Wednesday in the opener of a three-game Western Canada trip. The Devils are 5-0-0 on the road this season and are the only team in the NHL without a road loss of any kind.
It's the second time New Jersey has won each of its first five road games; in 2009-10, the Devils won their first nine games away from home. They are 9-2-0 after 11 games for the first time in their history.
It was also an emotion night for the Devils, with forward Brian Boyle playing his first game since being diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukemia on Sept 19. Boyle had 15:19 of ice time, with one shot on goal and two blocked shots.
