Nico Hischier: "I guess we're up there with the history book"

The New Jersey Devils delighted everyone with their form, and have achieved their 13th victory in a row. Nico Hischier, the captain of the team, is happy about the great game of his team. "I guess we're up there with the history book," Hischier said, as quoted by nhl.com "Nobody is going to take that from us now, and it feels good.

It proves that we're a good team, that we can win hockey games, that we don't have to hide anymore." Jesper Bratt thinks that it is a great thing how they are playing, but that they must continue at the same pace.

"Winning is awesome," Bratt said. "Everything around the rink ... being with the guys and playing these important games, that means a lot and winning is the best thing possible in hockey, but obviously we still know that we have a lot of work to do because it's still early in the season.

We've got a long way to go."

Edmonton coach on the game

Edmonton coach Jay Woodcroft believes that his team made too many mistakes. "There were individual errors in our game tonight, and you can't do that and expect to outscore mistakes," Edmonton coach Jay Woodcroft said.

"We clawed back. There was game and fight in our team, and we made it 3-2 at the beginning of the third period with a chance to tie it. [Vanecek] made a really good save and, in the end, self-inflicted, individual mistakes cost us."

Bratt believes that his team has everything it needs. "A lot of teams are looking at us as a very offensive, skilled team, but I think the thing that has helped us win games has been our depth, that we have four lines, three defense pairs that make a big impact and our goaltending," Bratt said.

"We don't get scared, we don't get back on our heels [when the game is close]," Devils coach Lindy Ruff said.
