Youthful Devils invade Ottawa

OTTAWA -- Led by a top-ranked power play and a productive rookie class, the New Jersey Devils are off to their best start in nine years.

When they visit the Ottawa Senators on Thursday, the Devils will be coming off a shootout win over the high-flying Tampa Bay Lightning that gave New Jersey five victories in its first six games for the first time since 2008-09.

Halting Tampa Bay's four-game winning streak on Tuesday was not enough to completely satisfy Devils coach John Hynes, whose club ends a busy stretch of eight games in 14 days Friday at Prudential Center against the San Jose Sharks before getting a rest until back-to-back games against the Senators and Arizona Coyotes on Oct. 27-28.
