Devils Allow Softest Goal-Of-The-Year Candidate On Conor Sheary Shot
- Things are bad with the New Jersey Devils and Louis Domingue is one of the two goalies who has to sit in the net and take all the punishment night in and night out.
- The Buffalo Sabres scored five goals in the first period and extended their point streak to four games in a 7-1 win against the New Jersey Devils at KeyBank Center on Monday.
- Linus Ullmark made 44 saves, Jack Eichel had a goal and two assists and Conor Sheary scored twice for Buffalo (13-10-5), which is 2-0-2 in its past four games. Johan Larsson had three assists.
“The last couple of weeks, we think we’ve been playing pretty good hockey,” said Sheary, who ended a 19-game goal drought. “We haven’t gotten a lot of results, and part of that is because of secondary scoring. The other part is special teams, and both of those were good tonight. Hopefully that will give us confidence moving forward.”
- Louis Domingue allowed five goals on 15 shots and was pulled after the first period for New Jersey (9-13-4), which has lost five of its past seven games and was without Jack Hughes for a second straight because of a lower-body injury.
- Mackenzie Blackwood made 15 saves in relief.
“I’m running out of things to say as to why we’re playing like that,” Devils forward Taylor Hall said. “It’s hard. It’s a tough pill to swallow, and it’s everyone in here. It’s too bad. We have the players in here to play a lot better than that. We’ve got to step it up.”
