Devils hand Maple Leafs first loss of season

Devils hand Maple Leafs first loss of season”

It's that balanced scoring that makes this team so unsafe, as it has posted three straight overs to open the season with two totals at 6 and one at 6 1/2.

Miles Wood scored a pair of goals as the New Jersey Devils defeated the Toronto Maple Leafs 6-3 on Wednesday Night.

Goalie Cory Schneider stayed cool under pressure throughout the night, allowing one even strength goal while stopping 47 of the 50 shots he faced.

Matthews scored his third goal on a 5-on-3 power play at 13:34 to get Toronto to within 5-3, but Zacha scored his second of the season at 17:21 to make it 6-3.

Trailing 3-2 in the second period, the Leafs were presented with a golden scoring opportunity with a two-minute 5-on-3 power play in the second period. And as one-sided as the totals history has been between these teams at the ACC, they're actually 4-0-3 against the total in their last seven overall meetings.

Brian Gibbons and Blake Coleman each scored, and Adam Henrique and rookie defenseman Will Butcher each had two assists for the Devils, who are 3-0-0 for the first time since 2014-15.

Was Palmieri anxious about knee? But the Devils didn't trail for long.

The Devils scored twice in the second period to break a 2-2 tie. The goals were Wood's ninth and tenth of his career in only his 63rd game.

Special teams have been on the Devils' side through two games; they have the top-ranked power play in hockey with a 37.5-percent success rate while having killed off nine of 10 opponent man-advantage situations so far.

Zacha beat Andersen for a power-play goal at 9:58 for a 3-2 lead.
