The Devils struggled to get offense going in Thursday night's 2-1 loss to the Panthers and need to improve on the power play, according to forward Kyle Palmieri.
New Jersey failed to capitalize on either of its two power-play chances, not garnering many attempts toward net. For the game, the Devils only recorded 24 shots on goal.
"As a unit, our power play was pretty bad tonight, myself included," Palmieri said, according to Chris Ryan of NJ.com. "We have to do a better job of getting in and getting set. I don't even think we had a shot, so that's something we need to fix going into Saturday."
Before the game, head coach John Hynes said the Panthers would do a good job presenting his team with an early-season challenge, especially since the Devils need to improve in a couple of different facets moving forward.
The Devils will get the chance to improve on their power play when they play the Lightning in Tampa Bay on Saturday night at Amalie Arena.
