What To Watch For: Apr. 6-12
In the Hunt
With six games remaining, the Devils are in 10th place with 77 points. They trail the Portland Pirates and the Springfield Falcons, who both have 81 points. Portland has played one fewer game than Albany, while Springfield has played two more games than the Devils.
Pivotal Road Weekend
Up next, the Devils (33-26-5-6) embark on a three-game, road weekend. The team travels to face the Binghamton Senators (30-32-7-1) Friday at 7:05 pm, the Hartford Wolf Pack (38-23-5-4) Saturday at 7:00 pm and the Worcester Sharks (39-23-4-2) Sunday at 3:00 pm.
Taking Care of Business
After falling to the first-place Manchester Monarchs, 2-1, Wednesday at Times Union Center, the Devils responded with a 1-0 shootout win on the road against the Springfield Falcons Friday and a 4-1 victory against the Senators at home Saturday.
Paul Thompson has two hat tricks during the last four games. He potted three goals in a 3-1 win at the Norfolk Admirals on Mar. 28 and hit the trifecta against the Senators last Saturday. The Devils winger has three hat tricks this season, tallying his first during the season opener with four goals at the Adirondack Flames on Oct. 11.
The Devils will host their annual “Season Ticket Holder Party” Tuesday at the Hilton Albany. The festivities begin at 6 pm and are open to all Full, Full Flex and 20 Game Ticket Holders. The night includes a chance to interact with the Devils players, coaches and staff, hot and cold food items, free parking and prizes.
