Devils look to continue fast start vs. Stars

A year ago, the New Jersey Devils learned that a fast start can build the foundation for a successful season. Looking to replicate that, the Devils seek a fourth consecutive victory Tuesday night when they host the Dallas Stars at Prudential Center.

The Devils (3-0-0) won their first three games last season, as well. They also earned wins in six of their first seven games, and nine of 11, setting the stage for a 97-point campaign and the organization's first playoff appearance in six years.

"It's huge because it gives you breathing room, a bit more space, and our start last year really propelled us to maintain that strong play all season long," said Devils alternate captain Taylor Hall. "You have to bank wins whenever you can, and it's especially nice to do so right at the start of the season."
