ALBANY, NY – “You’re only as good as your last game” might not be a saying, but the Albany Devils must feel pretty good after salvaging their week with a 4-3, come-from-behind victory against the Toronto Marlies Saturday. The win – the Devils’ sixth of the season – came after dropping back-to-back games Wednesday at Wilkes-Barre/Scranton and Friday against Toronto.
“The fact we were able to come back and show good resiliency, this should be a bit of a character builder for us,” said Head Coach Rick Kowalsky after Saturday’s win. “That’s a good hockey team. They’ve got a ton of skill, and they’re going to put you on the ropes.”
Rookie netminder Mackenzie Blackwood made his Times Union Center debut Saturday and registered his second career victory, making 30 saves. For the season, he’s 2-0-0 with a 2.48 goals-against average and a .930 save percentage. Scott Wedgewood is 3-2-0 with a 2.38 goals-against average and a .917 save percentage.
