The Devils started their season with an exciting 4-1 win over the Colorado Avalanche on Saturday and the game had a lot of people feeling good vibes about the Devils for the first time in a while. David and I (Mike) talked about the speed and skill on display by the team in their first game, the team’s outlook in the short and long term, and just what it’s like to be excited for a Devils team again. Some specific players touched on include Will Butcher and his three-point night, Jesper Bratt and his all-around great effort, and Nico Hischier with his unmistakable skills with the puck. To top it off, we took some good listener questions on the team’s outlook for this season. It’s about as positive as I can remember being on an episode, so enjoy and please don’t cite anything I said if the team loses 12 games in a row in December.
