Brian Gibbons hurt his right knee blocking a shot in the third period of Friday night's 2-1 win over Colorado.

Brian Gibbons' overtime goal was the winner Saturday.

Believe it or not, Gibbons leads the Devils with 11 goals this season after having five in his career coming into this season. "I think his work ethic and competitiveness have been extremely consistent," coach John Hynes said. "That really was what was missing from his game. When you watch him play every night now, you notice his speed, you notice his compete, you notice his hockey sense and instincts but that’s because his work ethic has been very consistent. You’re seeing a guy that had all the talent to play in the NHL, with hockey sense, speed, determination and skill. But he wasn’t consistent enough to put the package together. Now he’s mature. I think he clearly understands what he needs to do to play and he’s been very consistent in his play and that’s been the big difference."

Brian Gibbons found the back of the net in Wednesday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Boston Bruins.

The Devils were down 2-0 in the first period, but they managed to come back thanks to goals by Jesper Bratt (power play) and Gibbons. They eventually lost in the 11th round of the shootout though. Believe it or not, Gibbons now has 10 goals and four assists in 21 games. He's on pace to score 39 goals this year, but that won't happen. Still, he remains a nice story.

With his sixth goal of the campaign Friday night, Brian Gibbons has scored more goals in 12 games this season than he had in his entire NHL career.

That's right. Going into this season Gibbons had scored five goals in 66 NHL contests. He's obliterated that total in just a dozen games. That said, we think this is just a blip on the radar and Gibbons will turn into a pumpkin very shortly.

Brian Gibbons scored again on Saturday and leads the New Jersey Devils in goals with five.

Two goals have come shorthanded as Gibbons has been a very pleasant surprise thus far. He played for the Rangers farm club last season and was in camp on a professional tryout before making the team. We don't think he has much fantasy value but we thought that at the beginning of the season and look what he has done so far.

Brian Gibbons found the back of the net in the Devils' 6-3 win over Toronto on Wednesday.

Gibbons managed to score on a five-on-three shorthanded situation, which makes him the first player in the Devils' franchise history to do so. That marker really was critical as the Devils entered that shorthanded situation with just a 3-2 lead and Gibbons scored early in the penalty kill to stifle the Leafs' opportunity to build some momentum. Gibbons now has two goals and three points in three games this season.
