Wednesday’s other NHL Game

Wednesday’s other NHL Game

Devils 6, Maple Leafs 3

TORONTO

Brian Gibbons had a rare 3-on-5 goal, Miles Wood and Pavel Zacha each scored twice and unbeaten New Jersey ended Toronto’s perfect start. Blake Coleman also scored, and Cory Schneider made 47 saves to help New Jersey open 3-0-0 for the first time since 2014-15. Tied 2-2 after 20 minutes, New Jersey scored twice in the second period despite being outshot 17-12. A key moment came late in the period with the Devils taking two minors on one play. Rather than Toronto taking advantage, New Jersey killed off the penalties and scored short-handed to make it 4-2. Jake Gardiner was unable to keep the puck in at the New Jersey blue line and two Devils broke in. William Nylander’s backcheck swept the puck off Adam Henrique’s stick, and the puck went off goalie Frederik Andersen to Gibbons in front. Auston Matthews, with his third, cut it to 5-3.
