  • The Devils out-shot Ottawa, 46-33, which was a season-high shot total for New Jersey.
  • At 4:21 of the first period in the Devils/Senators game, Ottawa requested a Coach’s Challenge to review whether a New Jersey player interfered with Ottawa goaltender Craig Anderson prior to Nico Hischier’s goal.
