Devils score 2 quick goals, hold on to beat Canucks 2-1

Wayne-Simmonds

First-period goals from Wayne Simmonds and Jesper Bratt were enough to support a 30-save effort by goalie Mackenzie Blackwood in a 2-1 win over the Canucks on Sunday at Rogers Arena in Vancouver.

The Devils' scoring came in a 22-second stretch in the first period, where they turned a scoreless game into a 2-0 lead in a flash. Taylor Hall sent a pass into the Canucks' zone that Kyle Palmieri directed to Simmonds. It was New Jersey's second power play goal in eight road games this season and ended a 0-for-10 slump over their previous three games.

Bratt tipped a Damon Severson point shot past a screened Markstrom at 12:10 to make it 2-0.

The Canucks generated a risky power play in the first period before coming up empty, and they cashed in on their second chance in the second period.

This specific charade earned him a swift reprimand from the judge: "I know you're a comedian ... but this is serious". Stone also allegedly pressured Credico to plead the 5th and not cooperate with Congress and the Mueller investigation.

Boeser scored with 7:20 left in the second. Forward Brock Boeser took a pass and rushed up the right side before snapping a shot off the far post and past Blackwood at 12:40. Jack Hughes, an 18-year-old center selected No. 1 by the Devils in the 2019 NHL Draft, scored his first NHL goal in New Jersey's 1-0 home win against the Canucks on October 19, the first NHL game between the brothers. Just as they had in Friday's 4-1 road loss to the Winnipeg Jets, the Canucks took consecutive penalties, surviving the first disadvantage, but not the second, then quickly surrendered a second goal at even-strength. New Jersey averages 10.3 penalty minutes per game, the sixth-most in the National Hockey League.

Alas, the Canuck most inspired by the line juggling seemed to be the goalie, as Markstrom made a handful of hard stops to keep his team within a goal.

Canucks defenseman Quinn Hughes had one assist in the rematch with younger brother Jack Hughes, who was held without a point.
