Despite a goal and an assist from Albany forward Joe Whitney, the Devils fell, 6-4, to Springfield on Friday night as the Falcons scored four unanswered goals in the third period.

Whitney’s power-play goal in the first period made him the franchise’s all-time leading point scorer. It gave the third-year pro 141 points, surpassing Stephen Gionta’s mark of 140. He later added an assist for his 142nd point with Albany.

The Devils (30-20-3-7) got 22 saves from Union College product Keith Kinkaid.

The Northeast Division-leading Falcons (37-18-1-5) got two goals from Jean-Francois Jacques, the game’s first and the winner. Springfield was 3-for-3 on the power play.

The Devils will host Hartford today at 5 and Syracuse on Sunday at 5.
