NEWARK, N.J. – Coming off back-to-back preseason victories, the Albany Devils did not skate Thursday. The team did participate in various off-ice activities – such as film study. The breather comes after the Devils defeated the Adirondack Phantoms, 5-3, Tuesday and the Connecticut Whale, 3-1, Wednesday.
Next up, the Devils will host the Phantoms for a scrimmage on Friday before traveling to face the Binghamton Senators on Saturday at 7:05 p.m.
In other news, the National Hockey League announced the cancellation of the 2012-13 regular-season schedule through Oct. 24. The cancellation was necessary because of the absence of a Collective Bargaining Agreement between the NHL Players’ Association and the NHL.
