Jesper Bratt, Marcus Johansson, Devils rip through Sabres in 6-2 win

Jesper Bratt, Marcus Johansson, Devils rip through Sabres in 6-2 win”

The Buffalo Sabres tough start to the season continued on Monday afternoon as the New Jersey Devils tallied four second period goals en route to a 6-2 win at Key Bank Center.

The Devils (2-0-0) did that all without forwards Kyle Palmieri and Drew Stafford, who missed the game with lower body injuries.

Bratt, the 19-year-old rookie, is out to prove he deserves to stay in the National Hockey League all season, and he proved his case again.

Jesper Bratt and Marcus Johansson each scored two goals and added an assist for the Devils (2-0-0 overall) while Evander Kane scored both goals for Buffalo (0-2-1 overall). The Devils now have two shorthanded goals in two games, with Bratt getting the assist on the first one on Saturday. "This is a game of mistake and we're making mistakes at key times and they're ending up in the back of our net".

Chad Johnson got the start in net, and was torched for six goals off of 22 shots. Late in the period, he was given a new one with the name spelled properly.

Meanwhile, No. 1 overall pick Nico Hischier recorded his first National Hockey League point and journeyman left wing Brian Gibbons had a goal and an assist as Cory Schneider made 23 saves.

The New Jersey Devils had the ping pong balls go their way in the 2017 National Hockey League draft lottery, allowing them to come away with the top pick in the draft. Nico Hischier, the No. 1 pick in the 2017 NHL Draft, recorded his first NHL point when he set up Gibbons to make it 2-0 at 18:56. Bratt set up Johansson for his second goal on a 2-on-1 against Beaulieu at 18:56 that made it 6-1.

Hall, stripping the puck from Nathan Beaulieu in the Sabres' zone, set up Johansson with a no-look backhanded pass for a 4-1 lead at 7:49.

Devils goalie Cory Schneider didn't face the same volume of shots he saw in his first game, but the net minder allowed two goals while saving the other 23 shots he faced.
