Jack Hughes nets his first NHL goal against his Brother Quinn’s Canucks.

Saturday night saw Jack Hughes’ New Jersey Devils face-off against his brother, Quinn Hughes’s Vancouver Canucks at the Prudential Centre New Jersey.

The night ended in a 1-0 Devils win after Jack Hughes netted his first NHL goal on the powerplay, a wrist shot from the right side faceoff circle after receiving a pass from linemate Taylor Hall at 14:08 in the first period.

20-year-old Canucks Defenseman brother Quinn Hughes said after the game “If we’re going to lose 1-0, I’m happy he did it, but at the same time, I’m not happy we lost.

At times, the game did get a bit strange for the brothers as they battled along the boards and weren’t afraid to square up against each other, A bit of sibling rivalry never hurt anyone, did it?

The result was made that much sweeter for the Devils as MacKenzie Blackwood stopped all 25 shots that came his way that broke the Canucks 4 game win streak and getting his first NHL shutout this season and 3rd in the NHL.

Blackwood made 25 saves to get his 1st NHL shutout of this season and his 3rd overall.
