Devils go from last to playoffs, with more needed next year

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) It would be easy to say the New Jersey Devils are back after ending a six-year playoff drought.

John Hynes' team went from last in the Eastern Conference in 2016-17 to the postseason in less in the year, riding a career year by left wing Taylor Hall and outstanding first seasons by No. 1 overall draft pick Nico Hischier and Will Butcher. This was a team that made it tough on opponents almost every time it stepped on the ice.

The standings said it all. New Jersey went from 28 wins and 70 points to 44 wins and 97 points.
