Even though the Devils as a whole have been red hot since the All Star break, there has been one player who’s doing a fantastic job with the Devils’ scoring explosion. So this week’s player of the week is Ilya Kovalchuk. In the last 4 games Kovalchuk had 3 goals and 7 assists. If he can keep this up the Devils can look to climb higher in the Eastern Conference standings.
Kovalchuk’s play has been so good that he was named the NHL’s 2nd star of the week behind Sam Gagner and ahead of James Reimer. Congrats to Kovy!
