Nemec scored a goal and blocked two shots in Thursday's 2-1 win over the Kraken.

Nemec has stepped right into a top-four role for the Devils. He checked off another milestone Thursday was his first NHL tally, which was also the game-winning goal. He's racked up three points, five shots on net, three blocked shots and a minus-2 rating through his first three appearances.
