Morning jam: Rangers-Devils Game 4 fact
By Elias Sports Bureau
• Defenseman Bryce Salvador scored one goal and assisted on another in the Devils' 4-1 win in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals. Salvador scored no goals and recorded only nine assists while playing in all 82 games for the Devils this season but he's tallied 10 points in 16 playoff games this year (three goals, seven assists). That's a Stanley Cup record for most points in one playoff year by a player who appeared in at least 70 games and registered nine or fewer points during the preceding regular season. The previous record was eight points by Panthers defenseman Paul Laus in 1996 (nine points in 78 regular-season games).
