Devils win fourth in a row

The New Jersey Devils won their fourth game in a row and second in two nights over the Buffalo Sabres with a 4-2 win at the Rock.
Kyle Quincey scored the first goal (1) before Buffalo tied the game at one.
The remaining Devils goals to Kyle Palmieri (3),Nick Lappin (2) and John Moore (2).
Cory Schneider had 21 saves in the win...

Hell Raisers

1) The Nick Lappin goal was the sweet one as Taylor Hall zipped a sharp pass that Lappin quickly deposited behind Robin Lehner.
Nick Lappin has played well in his first few games as a Devil and might be making a move to stick around for a while.

2) Taylor Hall was brought in as a scorer,but what has been a surprise to me has been his passing skills.
Hall has an ability to hit the open man and his skills in traffic are far better than expected..

3) Damon Severson continued his strong start with a assist on Kyle Palmeiri's goal.
The cross ice pass by the defenseman was the main part of the play,but I've been quite impressed by Severson thus far in his attempt to establish himself as the top young defender on the team...

4) Power play struggles continued as none of the Devils goals came on the PP.
Gotta turn this around soon...

5) Mike Cammalleri missed his second game in a row with a personal issue.
No idea what that is,but hopefully things work out and the veteran winger will return to a lineup that could use him..

6) The Devils traded a conditional seventh round pick to the Flyers to right winger Petr Straka.
Straka was assigned to Albany following the deal.
Straka scored 19 goals and 18 assists last year for the Flyers AHL team in Allentown.
