Rookie scores twice as Devils beat Red Wings

Red-Wings-Devils-Hockey-3-1

The Detroit Red Wings were met with defeat on Wednesday against the New Jersey Devils. Schneider stopped 31 of 32 shots to earn his 17th win of the season. "I feel we were kind of finding our game over the past six or seven games, just playing the right way". We have the longest home stand of the year, and I think we've done a great job getting points while we are here.

Regardless of what the Devils have done in front of Schneider, the veteran goaltender has pieced together a strong personal run where he has given the Devils a chance to win each time out.

The Devils outshot the Red Wings 13-7 in the first period, not allowing Detroit a shot on goal until almost 11 minutes elapsed on the game clock. The other three wins were against Dallas, Anaheim and the Rangers.

The Devils' record against Atlantic Division teams has improved to 8-1-3, as the team retains first place in the Metropolitan Division with 49 points in 36 games.

Wednesday's game was the start of a stretch of six in 12 days - a four-game road trip opens Saturday at Washington - that leads into the Devils' NHL-mandated bye week.

New Jersey sealed the game by killing off all five Red Wings' power plays in extending Detroit's losing streak to three games.

But the game wasn't clinched until Sami Vatanen's empty-net goal with 22.9 seconds left in regulation.

"Sometimes you give up an early goal or two, you've got to settle in and stick with it and not let it get out of hand, or maybe you've got to make some big saves in the second period instead of the third", Schneider said. "Great win in the end".

Justin Abdelkader prevented the shutout with a second period goal for Detroit. The team was quick to get shots off on Detroit netminder Jimmy Howard with six registered before the Red Wings were able to register their first at 9:33.

"We can't feel bad for ourselves", Abdelkader said. "We play again in two days so we have to find a way". Hischier deflected his shot past Howard with 4:44 left in the period.

And Hischier's hat trick was three penalties, holding Tomas Tatar at 15:50 of the first period, tripping Darren Helm at 10:35 of the second period and high sticking Dylan Larkin at the Red Wings' crease at 16:45 of the second period. Jesper Bratt made a attractive no-look pass to Taylor Hall, who set Nico up for the goal.

"To score feels good", the 18-year-old Hischier said after collecting his sixth and seventh goals.

Abdelkader scored from the right circle at 8:09 of the second period after the Red Wings had sustained pressure in the New Jersey zone.

There was a lot of sloppy play from both sides, especially in the third period.
