Sometimes the game-changing plays aren’t always the flashiest ones, but just making a heads-up decision at the right moment.
In today’s edition of the Amica Coverage Cam, Andy Brickley breaks down some Devils backchecking, taking away a potential two-on-one opportunity from the Bruins. As Milan Lucic streaks into the offensive zone, he looks behind him for a trailer and slows down just a bit. That was enough to give Devils defender Bryce Salvador an opportunity, as he aggressively attacks the puck and breaks up the play.
Check it all out in the video above.

The New Jersey Devils opened this lockout-shortened season by continuing their success against the New York Islanders.
The Islanders have a chance to change that with two meetings in the next four days and their impressive play on special teams could be key.
