He stopped 40 shots in Thursday’s 5-2 victory at Boston and followed it up with a 37-save shutout in Saturday afternoon’s 2-0 win over Carolina.“When you’re in a situation where things haven’t gone as you’d like, for guys to be able to come in and make an impact on the team is really important,” New Jersey coach John Hynes said.Because of Blackwood’s performances, the Devils have a chance at getting three straight wins for the first time since allowing four goals during a season-opening four-game winning streak. New Jersey also is trying to allow two goals or fewer for the third straight game for the first time since its season-opening streak.“It’s huge,” Blackwood said. “It’s awesome.

The challenge here is to just keep going, keep moving forward, keep having success.”Since a three-game losing streak Dec. 15-20, the Devils are 3-1 in their last four games and since a six-game skid (0-3-3) from Nov. 23-Dec. 3 http://www.avalancheshoponline.com/auth … her-jersey , they are 5-4-2 in their last 11 contests.The Devils played Saturday without Taylor Hall, who missed his third game of the season and second in a row with a lower-body injury.

The Canucks have won their last seven games when he scores and 8-0-1 in the last nine games when he registers at least one point.“We got away with a game where we didn’t play our best, but we trust each other and we have the confidence to be patient,” Pettersson said.
