Devils' Jack Hughes scores first goal versus brother Quinn in surreal scene

Devils' Jack Hughes scores first goal versus brother Quinn in surreal scene

A passing sequence between defenseman Sami Vatanen and Taylor Hall resulted in an unmarked Hughes receiving the puck on the near side.

"It was such a thrill", Hughes said after the game.

With the Devils leading 3-1 after two periods, Ryan Strome sent a pass in front to Fast from the left corner, and Fast poked it into the open net for his first at 2:22 of the third.

Moments after a Devils power play expired, Gusev intercepted Artemi Panarin's pass, skated in and beat Georgiev for his third with 7:39 remaining. Devils goalie Mackenzie Blackwood made 29 saves in the victory. The Devils scored 2.7 goals per game while allowing opponents to average 3.3 last season.

Fleury earned his first shutout of the season, 57th of his career and first against Pittsburgh. "Obviously, I'm going to congratulate him and stuff, but I wish we were winning 1-0". His most critical save came with Pittsburgh on a power play in the third period, when he lunged to his left to get his arm on an uncontested shot from the left circle by Juuso Riikola to preserve a 1-0 lead. The Rangers dominated the final period outshooting the Canucks 17-6. Boeser finished the game with three shots on seven attempts.

Trocheck roofed a backhander over Nashville goalie Pekka Rinne for the game victor, while Montembeault stuffed Matt Duchene, Ryan Johansen and Kyle Turris to nail down the victory. Wood's first of the season at 12:25 of the second period increased the lead to 3-1.

One would assume scoring your first National Hockey League goal is always a pretty special moment, but being able to do so against your older brother while a massive collection of family looks on has to be an an absolute dream. The rebound bounced to Edler, who shot it through the fold. He now has solo possession of the team lead with 26 shots on the season. He was brilliant in the third period where the Canucks were hanging on playing their second game in as many days. Schmaltz has a five-game point streak, which ties a career high. Alexandar Georgiev stopped 33 shots.

The Seahawks responded with a seven-play, 75-yard drive, with Wilson scoring on a 16-yard run up the middle. Jason Myers missed the extra point toward the windy Dawg Pound end to keep the Browns ahead by a point.


October 19 is a big day for Devils' first-round picks.

Tony DeAngelo and Jesper Fast had goals for the Rangers, who had played just three games in the first 14 days of the season. The setback was just the second in their last nine home games against Dallas.

"I thought that was the most energetic game we played, the most physical game", NY coach David Quinn said.

Mathew Barzal and Michael Dal Colle scored in the first period for the Islanders. "Especially losing three in a row".

The 18-year-old's celebration was almost more electric than his goal, and rightfully so after failing to find the back of the net in his first seven games.

P.K. Subban scored an empty-net goal with less than a minute to play, his first goal with the Devils. Buchnevich ended up on the fourth line during the second period but was back on the second later in the game. Martin Jones made 31 saves for the Sharks, who got goals from Timo Meier, Tomas Hertl and Marcus Sorensen.
