Broad Street Demons In First Place At First Quarter Check Point
Pittsburgh had more shots on goal, more hits, and won more face-offs than the Devils. Newark also committed more penalties. The Penguins were 1 for 3 on the power play. David Clarkson's second period goal made the Devils a perfect 1 for 1 on the power play. David had five shots on goal in twenty one shifts to lead the team. He and Patrick Elias, who assisted on Clarkson's PP goal, are now tied for the team lead with thirteen points. Ilya Kovalchuk was next in with only three shots on goal in twenty eight shifts.
The Devils now lead the Atlantic Division with nineteen points, three points better than the Pens. They are also riding a five game win streak in which they defeated the Pens twice, Tampa, the Rangers, and Islanders. Their lone regular season loss incidentally came against Pittsburgh back on February 2nd. The Devils are now 8-1-3 for the season. One quarter of the regular season is now complete.
