In a game the Devils are leading the Jets 4-0 in their home opener, Blake Coleman got his second goal of the night. It was how he did it that’s so impressive.
This one will be replayed on highlight reels for quite a while.
How?!?!?!?! With one hand no less to overpower the Winnipeg Jet checking him no less. To get that shot off and
embarrass beat Laurent Brossoit is pretty awesome. Though I’m sure the Winnipeg backup would want that back.
Maybe the Jets should high curtail it out of the New York/New Jersey area with their tails between their legs. They gave up 6 goals to the Rangers last night. Now, have followed it up with another four in two periods. They trail the Devils 4-1.
New Jersey has goals from Nikita Gusev and Sami Vatanen too. But Coleman is the story with a pair including the jaw dropping highlight reel goal that made it 4-0. Dmitri Kulikov broke Cory Schneider’s shutout.
Hasan should have plenty more later.
