A minute and a half into the game Hughes strips the puck from Kaako and scores his first NHL goal on a breakaway.  Later, Kaako gets a wide open chance on the Powerplay and misses an empty net. The Devils win the game 6-1.

Sink or swim for Jack. 1C duties against the teams biggest rival - everything he does is going to get scrutinized.

LGD. Just win.

LGD's!  Anyone else thinking Mr. Boquist needs a lil more "seasoning" in SEL?

I’ve previously declared this the Year of the Pavel. Still rooting for my new friend, but it’s also the Year of the Fitz. With Fitz on the coaching staff, only good things can happen. 
 

Let’s see Jack embrace this opportunity to step up, he and Taylor combine for 6 points. We don’t sh!t the bed in the third and we are finally victorious.

Nope, I think he should get more playing time in order to get acclimated to the NA game. I thought he looked good and has some decent chances in the games he has played. 

LGD!! Excited to see Hughes with Hall and Palms.

I'd rather send him back than have him stay with the Devils and play 10 minutes a night* on the 4th line.

Another head-scratcher.

Yup, that's the other angle to it. I think he could be impactful if he played. But I'd rather he was in the SHL if he's gonna be glued to the bench.

Re:  Boqvist, if he hasn't shown much progress and hasn't played much by Jan - Feb, sure, then you can doubt that keeping him was the right move.  I'm not going to assume that what we've seen through six games is going to be the norm through the rest of the season.

Anyway, LGMFD.  I will be there tonight and Saturday.  Really would like to leave ONE of these damned games not wanting to break something.

Lose for Lafreniere! If we're perpetually stuck with Hynes we might as well get the best, shiny new toy every year as consolation. Lol.

I think Hughes with Hall & Palms and Zacha with Goose could be pretty good. They need to put in maximum effort tonight and give the crowd something to cheer rather than jeer. A win will go a long way to getting everyone to step away from the ledge.

LGD!

Positive prediction: a back and forth wild one, 6-5 or 7-6 or something, Devils holding on for the first win. 

Depressed Devil fan prediction: Devils go up 2-0 quick and then get their doors blown off 6-2 

I'm hoping for the first one! Beat these clowns!

well this can go either way.... 

either Hughes comes up big... gets his first goal or few goals against the rangers and we finally get a win.. and against the Rangers...

Or

we'll be leading 2-0 for the whole game then Kakko will score his first hat trick and we'll lose in regulation.

Obviously we know which it's going to be based on our season so far

This game feels like one that could start a change in the team, especially against the Rangers in our building. If we win, I believe we could see us starting to roll. If we lose, thinks could get even more ugly and changes will be made...

Would've prefered Schneider, but Blackwood didn't look bad in his start against Edmonton, so... yeah.

Also, Hughes and Hall looked great during pre-season. Let's hope they can replicate that tonight.
