Devs ex­tend per­fect start


New York Post - - SPORTS -

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.
