Reading 3, Trenton 1

The Devils dropped their first home game of the new year last night 3-1 in front of 3,046 at the Sovereign Bank Arena.

The Royals took advantage of a powerplay late in the first period to jump out in front when Steven Later knocked the puck out of the air and threaded it past Devils' netminder Dave Caruso.

After a scoreless and rather bland second period, the Devils tied the score at one when Matt Radoslovich scored his first goal for the Devils at 1:07 when Zach Tarkir shot the puck towards net a t Radoslovich deflected it home.

The tie wouldn't last, however, as Reading came right back on the powerplay two minutes later when Brock Hooton scored his 14th goal of the season.  He would later add an empty netter to seal the deal.

Jonathan Quick stopped 36 of 37 shots to record the victory for the Royals, while Dave Caruso stopped 25 of 27 for the loss.

My Three Stars:
1) Brock Hooton (REA) - 2 Goals.
2) Steven Later (REA) - 1 Goal.
3) Matt Radoslovich (TRE) - 1 Goal.
