Rookie Adam Henrique showed that he has as flair for the dramatic as he scored the go-ahead goal with only 3:19 left in the Devils 3-2 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes. The thriving first-year player pulled the puck from scrum in the corner, raced behind the net, and beat Cam Ward to the post on a sweet wraparound goal. With his third goal and seventh point, Henrique is proving that he fits right in at the NHL level.
Not bad for a rookie, eh?This video is no longer available. Click here to watch more NBC Sports videos!
