These two signaled Zach is back.

Devils captain Zach Parise had been finding his way after missing most of last season to knee surgery. He found it on this two-game, two-night, two-victory trip to the Sunshine State.

Parise again looked like the player who was the first Devil to notch four straight 30-goal and back-to-back 80-point seasons, their leading point-getter three consecutive campaigns before knee surgery KO'd him last year.

Parise is hitting his stride just as usual partner Travis Zajac is ready to start his season, probably Friday, after Achilles tendon surgery. The Devils, winners of 4 of 5 since a four-game skid, could become formidable again.
