The Devils almost fumbled the bag at the eleventh hour, but a stellar game from Akira Schmid and the Hughes brothers propelled them past the Flyers in overtime 4-3.
With the way the goaltending splits have been so far this season, and the results (or lack thereof) it’s time for the Devils to give more starts and lean more heavily on Akira Schmid.
The Islanders looked like they were going to frustrate the Devils into a bad loss, but the Devils overcame.
Nico is back and we are all thankful.
In the seventh weekly Metropolitan Division snapshot of this season, the New York Rangers remain on top, Columbus finally won some games, the New Jersey Devils continue to struggle, and more in this week’s roundup of what happened in the division.

The Post-Game Discipline for Headshots Mess Caused by Perverse Incentives in the CBA, the NHL, the NHLPA, & the Refereeing
Nico Hischier’s impending return and Jacob Trouba’s headshot on Tomas Nosek has got me thinking about NHL discipline for headshots. The NHL’s post-game discipline is a mess caused by the league, the player’s union, and the referees.

Teams that are out of a playoff spot on Thanksgiving face an uphill battle to get in, but there are reasons to believe why the Devils could buck the trend.

The New Jersey Devils got a great game from the returning Jack Hughes, two terrible goals allowed by Igor Shesterkin, and even led 3-2 in the third period. They lost 3-5. Which means the Devils blew it. This is an unhappy recap of the loss.
