It also marked the first NHL coaching victory for Brent Sutter, who was brought aboard in July.
"I don't get caught up in that as far as myself," said Sutter, the team's eighth different coach since the beginning of the 1997-98 season. "The main thing is I want these players to have success."
The Devils were eliminated from last season's conference semifinals by the Senators in five games, four of which were decided by one goal.
