      Devils' Adam Larsson: Scores first goal, gets assist in win Tuesday

      Larsson scored the game-winner in overtime for his first goal of the season and added an assist in Tuesday's win against the Coyotes. After going scoreless in his first five games of the season, Larsson broke out with two points, the most important being the goal to seal the win for New Jersey. The young Swede has really taken off alongside Andy Greene on the Devils' top defensive pairing and finally has something to show for his improved play. Larsson played 23:55 and finished plus-2 with three blocks. He looked more involved on offense, so perhaps we should expect an uptick in scoring from Larsson moving forward.
