The Devils beat the Sabres for the second consecutive night, skating away with a 4-2 victory. Taylor Hall picked up two assists and Cory Schneider made 21 saves for New Jersey.

Scoring
  • Kyle Quincey got the Devils out to an early 1-0 lead with a shot that beat Lehner from the point. 
  • Marcus Foligno's game-tying goal came 3:41 into the 2nd, a blast that was set up by a turnover at the Buffalo blueline. 
  • New Jersey went ahead minutes later on Nick Lappin's 2nd of the season. Lappin converted a 2-on-1 break with Taylor Hall after Casey Nelson fumbled the puck along the near boards.
  • Kyle Palmieri made it 3-1 later in the period, sending a shot over Lehner's glove from the far faceoff dot. 
  • John Moore upped the New Jersey lead to 4-1 in the 3rd, but Matt Moulson's team-leading 6th cut the lead in half at 9:43 of the final period.
Game Notes
  • Moulson's goal marked his 1st of the season at even strength.
  • The team has now lost four games in a row for the second time this season.
