Before we do that, though....
Obviously, people who visit the blog frequently enough know that I handle more than just wrestling here (though inconsistently). I've considered doing more sports posts in general and this should be the first start to that. For future knowledge, if I do this it'll see posts focused on my favorite teams.
Now, for the games in question...
The Devils close the preseason on a high note and honestly, I'm pretty sure most people came away more impressed than they expected with the squad here. Their slow climb up the Metro looks like it might be a tad faster than people expected. The team simply gelled well.
Hall looked more than ready for the start of the official season, Hughes displayed exactly why he was #1, Gusev looked promising, and Nico was a solid two-way player. Add in better goal-tending than expected from Blackwood and Cory and the Devils showed that you can't even completely write off a possibility of a playoff spot for the group. Don't get your hopes up too high, Devils fans, as it was just preseason exhibitions, but know that there's no reason to write them off, either.
