Sunday was Devils Day over at Pro Hockey Talk. [PHT] PHT looked at topics like “Nico or Nolan?” (Nico, obviously), Pavel Zacha being ready to take a step forward, Cory Schneider looking to bounce back, Taylor Hall’s incredible run of bad luck and Blake Speers hoping to make the leap to the NHL.
Devils players went out and *hit the beach* this weekend:
