Video: Devils finally score in November

Nov 7, 2013, 7:51 PM EDT

The beauty of a given goal can be subjective, especially when the beholder hasn’t seen his or her team score in more than a week.

So, this tally isn’t really anything spectacular, but New Jersey Devils fans might treasure it. The team was shutout in back-to-back games this past weekend and had what was probably a welcomed layoff until Thursday, so the Devils’ last goal came on Oct. 29.

That is, until Eric Gelinas (or Adam Henrique, if there was a tip-in) found the net early in the first period against the Philadelphia Flyers tonight:

That broke a drought of 151 minutes and three seconds, according to the Bergen Record’s Tom Gulitti.

    People, take note of this kid. By the end of the season he will be in the Calder conversation.Every time he shoots it gives us a chance to score as no goalie we play is able to control his rebounds. The kid is a Shea Weber clone.

    Amazing this game was over in the first period when it was 1-0 the flyers right now couldn’t score 3 goals if the goalie was blind and was tied to the goal post

    It is great to know that the Devils are not the worst team in the NHL! Happy to see the Devils’ 41 year olds playing so well. Also nice to see the Devils playing very sound defensively.

    After being shutout two games in a row, the Devils were passing up opportunities to shoot and to score against the Flyers. That is a sign of a team that is lacking confidence in scoring. Let’s hope that from now on they shoot more and score more to regain their individual and collective confidence . Elias could not return fast enough. He has being missed, specially on the PP.
