• TODAY’S TOP THREE
She Said Yes: During the second intermission of Saturday’s game, Mike Whitney proposed to his girlfriend Lindsey Quay at center ice after participating in a shootout challenge. To the delight of everyone at Times Union Center, including both their families, Lindsey said “yes.” Mike worked with Devils’ Manager of Event Operations Caela McLoughlin to plan the surprise.
Another Big Week For Sislo: Mike Sislo fell just short in the American Hockey League Player of the Week selection, but he must have garnered serious consideration after a six-point week. The 28-year-old extended his point streak to five games thanks to five goals and an assist in four contests last week.
“The guy just keeps scoring goals,” said Reece Scarlett after Sunday’s win. “Just give him the puck and he’ll make things happen. He’s a special player, a pure goal scorer. It’s fun to watch.”
Faust, Johnson To Adirondack: The Devils’ roster got a little smaller Tuesday as defenseman Joe Faust and left-winger Ben Johnson were reassigned to the Adirondack Thunder (ECHL), who have a 7 pm contest against Wheeling at Glens Falls Civic Center. Faust has appeared in two games for the Devils this season, posting a +1 rating. Johnson has played three games and has an assist, a +1 rating and three shots.
