Ilya Kovalchuk and Bryce Salvador celebrate with Anton Volchenkov who scored his first goal as a member of the New Jersey Devils in today’s 5-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins. The last time Volchenkov scored a goal was April 1st, 2010 when he played for the Ottawa Senators.
Ilya Kovalchuk had his first Gordie Howe Hat Trick (a fight, a goal and an assist) this afternoon in the Devils’ 6-4 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers. Kovalchuk had a really nice shot on Brayden Schenn’s face in the fight and was the clear cut victor in the fight. Kovalchuk was reacting to when Parise was slewfooted in the 2nd period. Good to see an emotional Kovalchuk.
Zach Parise scored 2 goals last night including the game winner in the Devils’ 5-3 come from behind victory over the Montreal Canadiens. With a celebration like this he may want to stay in New Jersey after all.
Ilya Kovalchuk scored the shootout game winner last night when the Devils defeated the New York Rangers 4-3. Kovalchuk is 8 for 9 on the shootout this season.
The Devils came back from a 3-0 deficit to beat the Ottawa Senators 5-4 in a shootout. The team really came together after coach Peter DeBoer pulled Martin Brodeur for Johan Hedberg. It’s great to see that the team responded positively.
David Clarkson would score two of the Devils 3 goals tonight in a 3-2 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs. It was a special night for Clarkson since he was raised in the Toronto area.
Brodeur made some amazing saves in the Devils’ victory over the Sabres last night. This was from his best save of the night by shutting down Pominville’s chance.
