"The most important thing is to be 100 percent, it doesn’t matter if it’s the playoffs or not," Johansson said. "It’s a tough situation but it is what it is and we’re doing everything we can to get back to normal and get back to playing, but I’m not going to force something to get a game in, before the playoffs or not." Johansson has been skating, but isn't cleared for contact yet.

They are still awaiting his clearance to return to game action but this is a big step in the right direction for Johansson who has been out since January 23rd.

Marcus Johansson has lashed out at Brad Marchand for delivering the elbow that's caused him to miss the last 28 games with a concussion.

Marchand received a five-game suspension for his actions. "It was stupid," Johansson said. "There is nothing else to say about it. There was no point in doing that. There was no hockey play whatsoever there. It's sad to see that there are still guys out there trying to hurt other guys. There's nothing else to say about it. It's sad and stupid. I hope it doesn't come to him ending someone else's career before it's enough. It's not why we play the game." Johansson took part in the Devils' optional practice on Monday. The hope is that he'll be able to get into a game or two before the playoffs, but he needs to get clearance first.

He's missed 20 games so far due to the concussion and there's no guarantee that he'll be back before the end of the regular season.
