The Devils beat the Kraken 3-1
Star forward Jack Hughes scored a goal and added an assist, goalie Nico Daws made 27 saves and the New Jersey Devils handed the Seattle Kraken a third straight defeat, 3-1 on Monday night.
For Hughes, it was his first points since he was injured early in January.
Tyler Toffoli and Dawson Mercer scored the other goals for the Devils, who swept their two-game series against the Kraken.
In their last games, the Devils have only conceded one goal in regulation time. On Saturday, they suffered a 1-0 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes.
Defenseman Will Borgen scored midway through the third period to deprive Daws of his first career shutout and prevent the Devils from collecting their first of the season.
At the other end, Joey Daccord kept the Kraken in the game by blocking 34 pucks.
The Devils led 1-0 entering the second period when Hughes and Mercer scored in the first five minutes of play.
Hughes, who missed 11 games after suffering an upper-body injury Jan. 5 against the Chicago Blackhawks, directed a shot from a tight angle that hit Daccord’s mask before entering the net, after 48 seconds of play.
Mercer followed up by grabbing the return of a shot from Timo Meier for his 15e goal of the season.
