Marek Zidlicky has a sore foot that might keep him out of Friday's game.

Marek Zidlicky collected two more assists Thursday night in Philadelphia.

Zids just keeps on trucking. The 37-year-old led the team in ice time with 22:11, including 5:50 on special teams. His first assist shouldn't have been awarded, however. It was a normal breakout pass to Jaromir Jagr, who also appeared to momentarily lose possession before spinning and shooting. Zidlicky's second helper was a beaut to Patrick Elias off a sweet touch-pass from Martin Havlat. Hey, two points is two points!

That's pretty good value for New Jersey, considering he had 12 goals and 42 points in 81 games in 2013-14. He'll turn 38 in February, so obviously his age is a factor, but he should still be one of the more productive offensive defensemen next season.
