Blandisi set up Quenneville's first NHL goal and Quennville returned the favor in overtime, setting up his pal's winner on an odd-man rush with 54.6 seconds left in a 3-2 win that left the Rangers with a rare road loss.
BRIDGEPORT — In his first tour of duty with the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, Jon Landry was always a solid choice in the shootout. He went 4-for-7 in the bonus round over a year and a half with Bridgeport earlier in the decade.
He got his first chance of this season Tuesday night against Albany, and he was money one more time, beating Mackenzie Blackwood to finish off a 5-4 win over the Devils at Webster Bank Arena.
The Devils report for training camp Thursday. Here are some things to watch for:
1. Who will play with Taylor Hall?
The Devils' marquee offseason acquisition will be on the top line’s left wing with either Adam Henrique or Travis Zajac in the middle. Kyle Palmieri and Devante Smith-Pelly are among the candidates for right wing.
