Devils fans should be cautious despite strong start

Toronto peppers New Jersey goaltender with 50 shots but can’t make up for defensive breakdowns.But New Jersey’s Pavel Zacha scored a power play goal just over 10 minutes into the second period to retake the lead and the Devils added to their advantage when Brian Gibbons scored six minutes later with his team shorthanded two men.“We talked quite a bit about this game coming up and how it was going to be, and that’s exactly what I expected but I expected us to compete,” Babcock said. “They skated us into the ground.

Disappointing.”Video: NJD@TOR: Zacha buries nice dish from Bratt for PPG
