Devs extend perfect start
DEVILS 6 MAPLE LEAFS 3
TORONTO — Brian Gibbons had a rare 3-on-5 goal, Miles Wood and Pavel Zacha each scored twice and the unbeaten Devils ended the Maple Leafs’ perfect start with a 6-3 victory Wednesday night.
Blake Coleman also scored, Cory Schneider made 47 saves and rookie defenseman Will Butcher had two assists to help the Devils open 3-0-0 for the first time since 2014-15.
With the score tied 2-2 after 20 minutes, the Devils scored twice in the second period despite being outshot 17-12.
A key moment came late in the period, with the Devils taking two minors on one play. Rather than Toronto taking advantage, New Jersey killed off the penalties and scored short-handed to make it 4-2.
