Devils lose 2-1 vs. Islanders


It was a tough loss for NJ who seemed to have stolen a point from a third period Zajac goal. However, Casey Cizikas had different plans and with less than 3 minutes left in the third period he scored a go ahead goal to secure the Islanders a win. Zajac notched his 5th goal of the season and Gelinas was credited the apple for his 3rd point of the year. One bright spot of the game was the continued strong play of Kyle Palmieri on the Devils power play. The Jersey native leads the team with 6 power play points (2g-4a) and has 5 pts (2g-3a) in the last four games. The Devils will look to regroup against the Stanley Cup Champion Blackhawks this Friday at the Rock.
