The big story out of the game was an injury Will Butcher sustained in the third period, which came on a nasty hit from Roman Polak that sure looked like boarding to this writer. Looks like we’ll have to hold our breaths until Thursday.
#NJDevils - No update on Will Butcher’s status. Coach Hynes hasn’t met with Devils medical staff yet.— Amanda Stein (@amandacstein) October 17, 2018
Coach Hynes did not have an update on Butcher post-game. #NJDevils have the complete day off tomorrow, so I don’t expect any news on Butcher at least until 10:30am on Thursday - at the earliest. https://t.co/w4Ay7c9rq6— Amanda Stein (@amandacstein) October 17, 2018
A first in NHL history for Kyle:
For the fourth time in team history, the Devils are 4-0-0.
The @NJDevils won each of their first four games to begin a season for the fourth time in franchise history (also 7-0-0 in 1993-94, 4-0-0 in 1991-92 and 4-0-0 in 1995-96). #NHLStats #DALvsNJD pic.twitter.com/PBAXwHNvvX— NHL Public Relations (@PR_NHL) October 17, 2018
