John Albert made his NHL debut Monday night against the Rangers.
He scored his first NHL goal on his first big-league shot. Albert cashed in on a partial breakaway at the halfway mark of the contest. "I thought he was fine," said coach Claude Noel. "He had a couple little bumps where he was in our zone and they got caught a little bit, but I didn't think too much of it. He looked like he knew where he was going. I thought positionally he was strong. He would have liked to have won some battles earlier but after that, he got himself in the game real well." He logged 8:29 of ice time in the match, while skating on the fourth line.
