Despite giving up two shorthanded tallies and getting outplayed by the Hurricanes for most of the game on Tuesday night, the Devils came back with four unanswered goals, two of which were potted by Dawson Mercer, to close things out in impressive fashion. New Jersey claimed a 5-3 win on the road. [Devils NHL]
