NHL
New Jersey 7, Chicago 1
Travis Zajac capped New Jersey’s dominant second period with a short-handed goal, and the Devils cruised to a 7-1 victory over the Blackhawks. P.K. Subban, Damon Severson and John Hayden also scored in the second as New Jersey won for just the third time in 12 games. Jack Hughes picked up his fifth goal in the first, and Blake Coleman and Pavel Zacha scored in the third. It was the highest-scoring game this season for the Devils, and the worst loss of the year for the Blackhawks. Zack Smith scored early in the first period to give Chicago a 1-0 lead, but it would be their only goal of the night.

Off the ice…
NBC Sports has suspended former NHL player Jeremy Roenick indefinitely for making inappropriate comments about co-workers. The network announced the suspension Monday. Roenick made comments about fellow hockey broadcasters Kathryn Tappen, Patrick Sharp and Anson Carter during a recent appearance on the Spittin’ Chiclets podcast. He discussed a vacation with his wife and Tappen and made other remarks about Sharp’s and Carter’s appearances. Roenick played 20 NHL seasons with the Blackhawks, Coyotes, Flyers, Sharks and Kings before moving into television. He has been with NBC Sports since 2010. An NBC Sports spokesman says the suspension is without pay and the network would have no further comment at this time.
