The New Jersey Devils are having some trouble with their penalty killing.
Bryce Salvador and Andy Greene were on the ice for both of the Sharks power play goals on Saturday as the Devils have now given up six goals on 26 chances. "We have a good PK," Salvador said. "Right now we’ve come up against some of the top power plays in the league. Right now some of the minors (two-minute penalties) we’re taking are costing us. But I don’t think it was the difference in the game. We had our chances and could’ve easily tied it up and won. We had them hemmed in and we felt like we were going to get it and tie it up."
