The Albany Devils return to Times Union Center on Saturday for their Home Opener against the Portland Pirates at 5:05 pm. Also this week, the Devils conclude their four-game road trip at Portland Friday (7:00 pm) and then host the Binghamton Senators Sunday (3:00 pm).
The Devils registered their first win of the season, defeating the Toronto Marlies, 3-2, Sunday at Ricoh Coliseum. Jim O’Brien, Mike Sislo and Blake Pietila each scored and Yann Danis made 26 saves. Pietila scored the game-winning goal – the first tally of his career – off a Paul Thompson feed on a two-on-one at 3:24 of the third period.
