“We didn’t play to our capabilities and the result was what it was,” said Devils Coach John Hynes.
A simple observation, Hynes said it appeared the team just couldn’t find the rhythm they were working hard to achieve.
“I don’t necessarily know if it was flow, we just didn’t really play well enough in any facet of the game to really be able to find a way to win, whether that was penalty discipline or five on five,” he said.
Losing 5-1 to the Oilers tonight and 3-2 to the Calgary Flames on Thursday, the Devils haven’t lost back-to-back games since the beginning of the season.
“I think you have to give some credit to Edmonton, I think they played real well, they got off to a good start and I thought they played solid even when they had the lead they did a good job,” said Hynes.
“On the flip side we didn’t have one of our better games or efforts I should say, but a lot of that is attributed to Edmonton also.”
