ALBANY DEVILS DAILY BRIEFING
Monday, February 22, 2016
• TODAY’S TOP THREE
Another Big Weekend: A pair of road victories Saturday and Sunday have moved the Devils’ winning streak to five games, which is their third longest this season. Albany erased a two-goal deficit to beat the Utica Comets, 3-2, in overtime Saturday. The team then knocked off the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, 5-2, Sunday. Twelve players registered at least one point and Mike Sislo led the way with two goals and an assist.
Devils Hit the 30-Win Mark: In just their 50th game, the Devils registered their 30th win of the season Saturday. This year’s squad has reached the 30-win plateau faster than any other team in franchise history. The 2013-14 team held the record, hitting the mark after 57 contests.
Making A Jump: Thanks to an unblemished record during the last two weekends, the Devils own the second-highest points percentage in the entire AHL with a .676 mark. With just 25 games remaining, the team is 31-13-7-0. Only Toronto stands in front of Albany for the league’s top ranking. The Marlies have a .792 mark thanks to a 40-9-4-0 record.
