New Jersey Devils: Weekly Preview 10/19

The first week of the New Jersey Devils’ 2021-22 season is over, but that just meant one game for them. They opened their season at home against the Chicago Blackhawks and came away with an exciting overtime win.

This game was great from top to bottom: superstar defenseman Dougie Hamilton scored a goal in his Devils debut, top rookie Dawson Mercer got his first career NHL point, and Jack Hughes scored twice, including a beautiful backhander for the game-winner.

What makes this win even more impressive is the fact that the Devils are hurt badly right now, especially their defense.
