Several New Jersey Devils with NCAA ties figured prominently on the scoresheet in Sunday’s 4-1 victory over the host Carolina Hurricanes.
Mike Cammalleri (
opened the scoring with his first three goals of the year, a natural hat trick spanning
the second and third periods, following a scoreless opening 20 minutes. It was
Cammalleri’s sixth career hat NHL trick, and first in a New Jersey uniform since joining the club in
2014. Goaltender Keith Kinkaid (Union) made 33 saves in earning not only his
first victory of the season, but the Devils’ first road triumph of the 2016-17
campaign, in their sixth try after going 0-3-2.
Beau Bennett (
Denver) had two
assists for the Devils on Sunday, while team captain Andy Greene ( Miami) closed out the scoring
with a shorthanded empty-net goal in the final minute of regulation, his first
goal this fall. Noah Hanifin ( Boston College) assisted on Carolina’s lone score.
