    TEAM NOTES

     

    • The New Jersey Devils kicked off their three-game western Canada road trip by defeating the Vancouver Canucks to improve to 9-2-0 overall and 5-0-0 on the road.
      • With nine wins in their first 11 games the Devils are off to their best start in franchise history. New Jersey started 8-3-0 in the 1993-94 and 2002-03 seasons.
      • The club remains the only team in the NHL to earn all possible points on the road.
    • The Devils are now 6-1-0 against Vancouver overall since the 2014-15 season.
    • New Jersey is 2-1-0 against the Pacific Division this season and 3-1-0 against the Western Conference.
    • The Devils were 0-1 on the power play and 4-4 while shorthanded. Tonight is only the fourth time this season the Devils failed to score on the man-advantage.
    • New Jersey was out-shot, 37-26, and took 8 PIM on the night.
    • At 19:45 of the third period, the Situation Room initiated a review under the terms of a Coach’s Challenge to review whether New Jersey was off-side prior to Drew Stafford’s goal.  After NHL Hockey Operations staff reviewed all available replays and consulted with the Linesman, the call on the ice was upheld.
