Smith-Pelly, Sislo, Henrique Score 2 Goals in New Jersey Devils Win Over Minnesota Wild
NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Devante Smith-Pelly, Mike Sislo and Adam Henrique scored two goals apiece and the New Jersey Devils had their best offensive performance of the season with a 7-4 victory over the Minnesota Wild on Thursday night.
Reid Boucher also scored, Tyler Kennedy added a season-high three assists and Keith Kinkaid made 28 saves as New Jersey snapped a three-game home losing streak and rebounded from a 7-1 disaster in Anaheim on Monday.
Nino Niederreiter, Jared Spurgeon, Justin Fontaine and Mikko Koivu scored for the Wild, who squandered a chance to move ahead of Colorado into the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference with a too-little, too-late effort in losing their second straight.
