Kovalchuk’s Point Streak Providing Huge Boost For Resurging Devils

It’s been a rough start to the season for Ilya Kovalchuk and the rest of the New Jersey Devils, in which their league-worst record is not something the franchise is used to. Don’t count these guys in red out yet though, as the hard-nosed club has won 7 of their last 10 games; a span in which Kovalchuk has netted 9 points. These victories, including their most recent 2-1 win over the Ottawa Senators, show that Kovalchuk and company may still have some life left, as the Devils look to continue their hot streak and make an aggresive comeback push for the playoffs.
