- This one was all Devils from the outset, as they were fast, disciplined and controlled the play all night.
- Jaromir Jagr notched the 1,700th point of his career with his first period goal.
- Martin Brodeur turned in yet another stellar performance in net, stopping all fifteen Predator shots.
- Travis Zajac scored his first goal in seven games when he ripped a shot home in the third period to ice the game for New Jersey.
It may have taken 17 games to do so, but we finally saw a complete 60-minute effort from the New Jersey Devils.
They came out flying and kept up the pressure en-route to the dominating 5-0 win over the Predators.
After a frustrating 2-1 shootout loss on Friday night, the Devils seemed to have found their legs against Nashville. Forechecking, defense, passing, it was all on display on Sunday night from Prudential Center.
The win caps a strong weekend for the Devils, who gained five of a possible six points in just three nights. They seem to be finding their stride at the right time, as they'll travel to Madison Square Garden on Tuesday night before playing a back-to-back against the Penguins and Kings next weekend.
With his early struggles so far away in the rear-view mirror at this point, Martin Brodeur might be the hottest goaltender in the NHL right now.
It was the kind of night where everything seemed to go well. Cam Janssen scored his second goal in three games when he banged home a rebound off of an excellent shot by Ryan Carter and Mattias Tedenby got his first goal of the season as well.
There's no doubt that their confidence is high after their best effort of the young season, but it'll take more of the same effort next week if this team hopes to even up their record at .500.
