After being benched by Head Coach Pete DeBoer a game before against Montreal, Kurtis Foster came out to play against the Philadelphia Flyers with a chip on his shoulder. He responded the only way that anyone could think of when trying to come up with a solution on how to impress their coach: produce. Foster netted a pair of power-play goals, one in the first and one in the second. Alexei Ponikarovsky would eventually be credited with the game winning goal in the Devils 6-4 defeat of the Flyers.
After fully recovering from an offseason Achilles injury, Travis Zajac will make his season debut with the New Jersey Devils on Friday night against the Dallas Stars. The night adds and extra sense of nostalgia, as former Devils defenseman Scott Niedermayer will have his jersey raised to the rafters prior to the puck drop.
On their way to a 5-4 victory last night, the New Jersey Devils were led by strong performances on the ice by Zach Parise and Adam Henrique. The see-saw battle came down to the final minutes, where the Lightning forced a fair amount of pressure in trying to sneak in and force overtime. Parise and Henrique both finished the night with a goal and two assists.
“It was fun. Ideally we’d like to be able to put the clamps down at the end and shut them down a little better,” Parise said to Rich Chere of the Star Ledger. “We’ll have to keep talking about that and keep working on that. We have to do a better job of putting teams out of it when we have the lead.”
