All in all, a good first game for the Devils.
Defense is not a concern to me. Depth up the wazoo. Greene and Fayne should not be separated. They work so well together. Tallinder and Volchenkov each got burned once by Boyes, I believe. Otherwise, they were solid. Good games from Salvador and Zidlicky.
Offense is going to be interesting to follow. The first line looked good. Can't say much more than "wow" regarding Kovy's feed to Zajac. Beautiful dish.
Great games from Elias and Clarkson. Tedenby had a very good game and definitely deserves more time on the second line. So close to a highlight reel goal in the first. For such a small guy, the Isles couldn't knock him off the puck.
Matteau was impressive. A couple of big hits and good scoring chances. Might be a tough call come game 5 of the season. Based on that game, he looks to have second line power forward potential.
Josefson was all around solid again. Should slot in nicely as the 3rd line center once everyone gets healthy. CBGB picked up where they left off. Lots of chemistry from these three and Deboer, for good reason, has no problem sending these guys over the boards.
Marty was rock solid tonight. Some big saves and was in control of everything. No chance at all on the Hamonic rocket. Looked half his age tonight.
