Boston’s top line scored three goals as the Bruins thwarted New Jersey’s attempt to sweep the homestand on Saturday. The Bruins came away with a 5-2 win over the Devils. [NHL]
Then on Sunday, the Devils battled back and stole a point in a shootout loss to the Rangers. New York won 4-3. A couple controversial moments in this game: One involved Kaapo Kakko scoring a goal as he plowed through Mackenzie Blackwood, eventually sending the goaltender into concussion protocol, the other involving a P.K. Subban collision with Sammy Blais. [NHL]
Here’s that Kakko goal:

#NYR Gerard Gallant didn't have an immediate update on Sammy Blais, but added that "it didn't look good to me."— Mollie Walker (@MollieeWalkerr) November 15, 2021
What did the coach think about that play with #NJDevils PK Subban?
"A lot like the Reaves one that I saw."

The Devils are scheduled to play the Sens on Tuesday:
The #Sens have 10 players in COVID-19 protocol along with associate coach Jack Capuano. The club has nine healthy players left in Belleville and the testing is causing chaos. The NHL needs to determine how long this can continue.— Bruce Garrioch (@SunGarrioch) November 14, 2021
An, uh, impressive start to Connor McDavid’s career:
