The Albany Devils are gearing up for three games this week, starting Tuesday with a 7 pm outing against the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins at Times Union Center. The team then faces the Hartford Wolf Pack at XL Center at 7 pm Friday and at Times Union Center at 5 pm Saturday.


Last weekend, The Devils earned three-out-of-four points during a home-and-home series against the Bridgeport Sound Tigers. Friday on the road, Albany lost 5-4 in a shootout, but rebounded on Saturday at home with a 3-2 victory.


With a 2-0-0-1 record, the Devils are off to the best start in franchise history. The team went 2-1-0-0 during the 2007-08, 2010-11 and 2013-14 season. The franchise’s top mark after four games is 3-1-0-0 by the 2010-11 squad.


During Saturday’s game, Paul Thompson netted a pair of goals, including the game-winning goal (shorthanded) with 44 seconds remaining. The right winger is off to the best start by a Devil at the beginning of a season. After three games, he has seven points, including six goals. Matt Halischuk (4g-2a), Nicklas Bergfors (1g-5a) and Jon DiSalvatore (1g-5a) each had six points after three games during the 2008-09 season.
