Hischier Leads New Jersey Devils to 4-2 Victory Over Calgary Flames in Weekend Showdown

The New Jersey Devils defeated the Calgary Flames 4-2 in an matinee game, with Nico Hischier leading the way with two goals. Hischier's return from injury has significantly improved the Devils' performance, as they have won six of their last seven games since his return. Former Flames player Tyler Tofolli compared Hischier to Anze Kopitar, praising his all-around play and contribution to the team's success.

The Devils that broke a 1-1 tie in the second period following a failed coach's chellenge. Calgary coach Ryan Huska challenged for goalie interference, but the call stood, attributing the goal to the actions of a Flames player. Despite a late goal by Nazem Kadri, the Flames were unable to catch up, and Hischier sealed the victory for the Devils with an empty-net goal. The Flames will begin a three-game road trip in Colorado, while the Devils will conclude their road trip in Edmonton.
