The New Jersey Devils played the Buffalo Sabres in a Christopher Columbus Day matinee and Marcus Johansson finished up his holiday weekend with a bang. The newly-minted New Jersey forward potted two goals, his first regular-season goals with the Devils.
The Capitals dealt Johansson over the summer due to salary cap issues. Johansson has fit right in on the Devils, skating as the left wing on the second line next to 2017 first-overall pick Nico Hischier. He’s also one of the team’s alternate captains.
