“Unforgivable,” defender Luke Schenn said.
“It has nothing to do with the system or what the coaches are telling us. It comes down to battles and competitions and we lose in front of the net and in blue paint,” he added. “Everyone just has to be better in front of (Demko) there, and that’s where games are won and lost.”
Vegas appeared to take the lead halfway through the third period, but the goal was disallowed due to a strange rebound.

Smith shot the puck into the Vancouver goal at 8:57 to equalize.
“We just win a few goals below their goal line, get them to the net and force them to defend an area that they didn’t do as well as they probably would like this year,” Vegas Coach Bruce Cassidy. said. “We didn’t do a very good job to start the third stage there, and then everything snowballs. You don’t have much life and you get a couple more goals in the net and a second chance.”

“I believe we have a history book,” Hishir said. “No one is going to take that away from us now, which is a good thing. It proves that we are a good team, that we can win hockey games, that we don’t have to hide anymore.”

The Devils still have three quarters of the season to go, but they’re already on their way to the playoffs for the first time since the 2017-18 season.
“We ran great. We know we are being hunted right now,” said coach Lindy Ruff. “We know that we will expect the best from every team because we get recognition. So this is the part we have to deal with. But after 19 games, you can’t say, “We’ve sent a message to the league.”
Leon Draisaitl as well as Ryan Nugent-Hopkins scored for the Oilers in a double loss to New Jersey during the game. Stuart Skinner made 23 saves, but Hishir pulled the puck off his stick early in the second period and Mercer scored a wide-open goal.
