  • Devils 8 Rangers 5: Don’t let the score fool you, this game could have gone either way. New Jersey jumped out to a 5-1 lead and then saw it all disappear. New York tied it up at 5 thanks to a goal from Ryan Callahan, but they only enjoyed their comeback for 11 seconds. That’s all it took for Patrik Elias to convert off of a terrible defensive sequence and New Jersey was back in front. And, they added two more goals that capped a terrible night for the Rangers’ defense and Henrik Lundqvist. The game also included numerous fights and scraps, too bad both teams have to wait until December 27th before they face each other again.
  • Toronto 101 Nets 79: The Raptors opened up a lead in the first quarter and used a big third quarter to blow open the game. New Jersey was abysmal from the field, shooting only 31% on the night.
