Garden State of Hockey- Episode 87: Pavel Zacha...Has Arrived?

Pavel Zacha is on a heater right now and we talk about his prowess and the penalty kill’s continued failure.

Pavel Zacha has had a great few weeks and contributed in the largest way to the two points the Devils earned against the Sabres last night. Nico Hischier also got his first goal of the season as the Devils won despite another ineffective night for the penalty kill. These same Sabres buried them on Tuesday as the Devils generated quantity without quality en route to a loss. They face Washington back-to-back this weekend and look to capitalize on the games in hand they currently have.

We have few answers regarding the penalty kill but hopefully someone in the organization does because it is truly impossible to watch this slow train crash in motion every time they’re down a man. Let’s hope they can manage to be within shouting distance of league average by the end of the season, the bar has become impossibly low.

As always, thanks for listening and see you back here on Monday.
