As we always do when the Hawks and the Devils meet up, we turn to InLouWeTrust.com maven John Fischer (@JKFischer) to find out what’s going on in the swamp. And yes, we know the Meadowlands was the swamp but we’re guessing Newark isn’t much better.
So, still laughing about the Taylor Hall trade?
I did exclaim, “I don’t miss you, Adam Larsson” after this goal by Hall. More seriously, I think it was a fantastic trade. Larsson has actually turned out to be someone that Edmonton needed and Hall is performing at a level that has been missed at forward for several years in New Jersey. More germane to your readers for this game, he’s hot right now with five goals out of 19 shots on net in the last four games. He’s essentially the Devils’ Patrick Kane. And like Kane, once he has space, he will do amazing things.
