Their last game took place on October 25, 2022, and resulted in a high-scoring 6-2 win for the New Jersey Devils. One of the reasons behind the Devils’ triumph was the performance of Jesper Bratt. He was on the ice for 12:46 and ended the game with two goals and one assist to his credit. On the other end of the ice, Dominik Kubalik was the best of the Detroit Red Wings, finishing with 1 goal for 17:10 of game time. The winners’ netminder Vitek Vanecek’s impact on the outcome is not to be underestimated, as he deflected 20 of all 22 shots on his goal. Alex Nedeljkovic was between the sticks for the Red Wings and parried 35 of all the 41 shots he faced, but that proved insufficient for the win. The Detroit Red Wings are boasting a better H2H balance across the last five matches against the New Jersey Devils, registering four victories while losing once in the process.
