Travis Zajac is looking to do more offensively.

"I think I’ve played well in some situations and there still are some things I’d like to get a lot better at," Zajac said. "Defensively, I feel like that part of my game is consistent for me and it’s something I can always rely on. But I think, offensively, with the players coming in, I think I can be better and still create more chances and get more chances and hopefully contribute even more offensively." As it is Zajac is off to a fine start with four goals and six points in nine games. He hasn't reached the 50-point mark since 2009-10 though and he's not a safe bet to get there this season either.

Coach John Hynes switched up his lines Saturday.

Travis Zajac found himself centering Taylor Hall after Adam Henrique had the assignment on opening night and Zajac potted his first of the season in a 3-2 loss to Tampa Bay. P.A. Parenteau filled out the line while Devante Smith-Pelly, who was also on Hall's line in the opener, was dropped to the third unit with Beau Bennett and Pavel Zacha. Look for the Devils to make plenty of changes until they get their porous offense going.
