Travis Zajac scored a goal in a 5-2 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 1 of their best-of-seven series.

Zajac's goal got the Devils to within one of the Lightning midway through the final period but New Jersey couldn't muster up anything else offensively. The 32-year-old center has 11 goals and 27 points in 53 career playoff games.

With a playoff spot clinched, the New Jersey Devils have decided to rest four players ahead of tonight's game against the Washington Capitals.

Travis Zajac, Taylor Hall, Kyle Palmieri and Sami Vatanen will all get to rest up before the post-season. The Devils have been fighting for their playoff lives every night and now that they're guaranteed a spot, it makes sense to give their most important players some time off. If the standings remain the same after today's slate of games, the Devils will face tonight's opponents the Washington Capitals in the first round.
