The 2015-2016 rgular season has started out rough for the New Jersey Devils.
With last night’s 5-3 loss at the Verizon Center, the team is 0-2. Certainly not a time to panic, but something that needs to be addressed by head coach John Hynes.

First goal came from alternate captain Adam Henrique, who is expected to have a bounce back season:
The second goal came from the blue line on a the power play, compliments of Eric Gelinas:
