Just straight up #Relentless.

Not one, not two, not three, but seven goals were scored by the New Jersey Devils tonight at The Rock with the helpless Minnesota Wild looking on, fighting for their playoff lives out in the west.

Three Devils collected two goals apiece on the night.

Devante Smith-Pelly, Mike Sislo and Adam Henrique were those three stars. Keith Kinkaid stopped 28 saves in helping New Jersey snap a three-game home losing streak and rebound from a 7-1 disaster in Anaheim against the Ducks two nights ago.

3 Stars of the Game:

  1. Smith-Pelly (Devils – RW): Goals: 2, Assists: 1
  2. Sislo (Devils – RW): Goals: 2, Assists: 0
  3. Kennedy (Devils – C): Goals: 0, Assists: 3
