Alex Ovechkin did against the Devils what Alex Ovechkin does against a lot of teams: He scored goals. Three, to be exact. The Caps downed the Devils 5-2 on Thursday night. [All About the Jersey] []

Roster news:

Elliotte Friedman has several interesting Devils nuggets in this week’s 31 Thoughts column, including some commentary on the end of Ray Shero’s tenure with the Devils. Go read it, but this nugget is particularly interesting: “When the analytics job was posted last year, it created the impression that the analytics department would have an open line to ownership and not necessarily report to the GM. The Devils liked two of the finalists, and decided to hire both (Tyler Dellow and Matt Cane). I’m not saying that anyone submarined anyone else, but I don’t believe Shero was ever comfortable with all of this.” [Sportsnet]

As this season circled the drain, “Ray wanted to keep doing it his way,” one person said. And then, well, you know the rest. []

Where does Marty see himself in the NHL some day? Perhaps as a team president? [NHL]

Quite the first season for Jack Hughes, huh? His first coach, his first GM, his team’s star player are all gone, the guy he was living with was sent to the minors. There will be brighter days ahead for Jack (one would hope). [The Hockey News]
