A couple game recaps here from prospects games over the weekend. The final Devils game from the Prospects Challenge will take place against the Bruins this morning.
In the first game, on Friday, Alexander Holtz tallied a pair of goals, including the overtime game winner, as the Devils beat the Habs 4-3. [NHL]
That was an awesome game from Alexander Holtz.— Ryan Novozinsky (@ryannovo62) September 17, 2022
He was a speedy, poised skater –– a vast improvement from last year. Was also aggressive in scoring chances. He missed his first three opportunities, but came up clutch twice –– tying it in regulation and burying it in OT.
And then on Saturday, the Devils fell to the Sabres, 7-4. Kevin Dineen was not particularly happy with the performance: “There’s no sugar coating that one. That wasn’t a very good performance by us. We had higher expectations. We were a little sloppy last night, and really thought our execution would be better.” [NHL]
