Having the New Jersey Devils’ first Stanley Cup championship team on hand for a 20th-anniversary celebration seemingly rubbed off on the current team. Adam Henrique scored two goals and Keith Kinkaid had 25 saves in his return to the lineup to lead the Devils to a 5-2 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Sunday night. ”I saw their eyes when they were sitting there,” Devils general manager and president Lou Lamoriello said of his team’s reaction during the pre-game ceremony in which stars like Scott Stevens, Marty Brodeur and Claude Lemieux were introduced to the fans. ”How could you not, sitting there, and listening to the names, not only players who were with us but those who went to other teams in great careers.” Henrique said it was special sitting on the bench and understanding what that team accomplished.
