New Jersey Devils lost 5-4 to Buffalo Sabres

The Buffalo Sabres won 5-4 vs the New Jersey Devils. Alex Tuch was one of the best individuals with two goals and one assist. Tuch is happy with his performance and the performance of his colleagues. "I really pushed hard to get back, and sometimes that comes with a little bit more inconsistency and a feeling out process getting back into it," Tuch said, as quoted by nhl.com "Jumping back in wasn't the easiest, but I thought my teammates really helped me out just pushing and getting back to the grind.

And having fun too; I thought tonight we had a lot more fun than we've had, especially since we won. Just playing our game and playing fast." Dylan Cozens also had a goal and an assist. Although there were moments with which he was not satisfied, the most important thing for him is that the team won in the final.

"That was big for us. Obviously, we've been struggling lately," Cozens said. "To come out and get the first one and the first few, it was big for us. Obviously, we don't quite like how we ended it. We let them back in it, but we got the win.

That's what matters."

Jonas Siegenthaler reacted

New Jersey defenseman Jonas Siegenthaler is still reviewing his team's mistakes and what went wrong. "I don't know why we played like this tonight," -Jonas Siegenthaler said. "Maybe it was some pressure.

We were able to clinch today if we win; maybe that was kind of in our head, I don't know. We know we didn't play our best, and I think it's important to know that we didn't play good." New Jersey coach Lindy Ruff believes that goalies should not be blamed in this case.

"It was definitely not on our goaltender," -Lindy Ruff said. "Our goaltenders have been big for us. They've made big saves. They went through a lot of people before they got to our goaltender."
