Albany defeated Lehigh Valley 4-1. Burlon led the way with a goal and an assist. Whitney, Sislo, and Thomson had the other goals. Sestito had 2 assists while Thompson, McPherson, D. Zajac, and Scarlett had one each. Sislo had 5 shots followed by K. Zajac with 4 as the Devils were outshot 36-22. Wedgewood made 35 saves on 36 shots. Albany went 0/5 on the PP and 4/5 on the PK. Here is the gamesheet and highlights:



Notes:
-- Albany now has a 7 game point streak.
-- Wedgewood finally breaks the .900 mark with a .902 SV% thru 22 games!
-- Burlon has 2 goals and 3 assists over his last 5 games.
-- Thomson has 2 goals and 2 assists over his last 5 games.
-- Scarlett has a goal and 10 assists in 13 January games.

Line Up (via ADevils twitter):
Whitney-Sestito-Thompson
Boucher-K. Zajac-Sislo
Matteau-D. Zajac-Thomson
McKelvie-Pelley-Carrier

Keenan-Scarlett
Burlon-McPherson
Faust-Kelly

Is Burlon developing into a reliable d man?  I've only seen him play a few games, and he is a great skater.  Nice run they're on at the moment. Pelley 4th line?

Yeah that's a little scary... I'd prefer someone with previous GM experience when the time comes... Or at least someone with a heavy personnel/scouting background.

Yzerman really surrounded himself with a greater (love their scouting dept) he didn't have a lot of experience, but some under Develano/Holland. He hit the ground running

What happened to this guy?  Was he in trouble or something?  He's not even 30 yet.

 

He wasn't great with the Kings, but he was awesome with the Flyers and had 60+ points 3 or 4 years.

Lost his passion for the game I guess!  He needs another challenge. Just not in NJ

that he is on waivers means nobody wanted to trade anything for him. the last thing the devils want is mike richards.

hopefully, someone with a lot of cap space will claim him.  I wouldn't want him even if they picked up 2 mil of his $$$. I think he lost his hunger for the game.  Maybe a change in scenery will jack him up. Just not in NJ

Given that the incoming ECHL team is owned by Edmonton, I'd be very surprised if it wasn't affiliated with the Oilers.
