Scott Gomez picked up his seventh goal of the season when he put home the Eric Gelinas off-angle rebound. Unfortunately, the Devils would fall to the Kings 3-1 on Monday night.
Gomez's tally made it 2-1 just 2:12 into the second period, offering the Devils some hope of coming back. But they'd offer LA three two power play, and fail to capitalize on one of their own before eventually falling 3-1.

Gomez has rebounded this season after scoring only two goals in each of the last three seasons and no more than 15 points, as he has four goals and 20 points in only 32 games.

Scott Gomez missed his second straight practice on Wednesday.

The Devils are downplaying that by saying Gomez is "resting," but it's entirely possible that he's dealing with an injury. Although this might prove to be nothing, we're going to err on the side of caution by listing him as day-to-day.

Gm Lou Lamoriello thinks that Scott Gomez can play in the NHL next season.

Lamoriello would not go so far as to say it would be with the Devils however. "The way Scotty is approaching it, he's doing everything he can to have success each and every night. He's not worrying about tomorrow," Lamoriello said. "And he's taking care of himself. He's in tremendous shape physically. He made that commitment last summer. That was the understanding we had prior to training camp: 'If you're going to try this, then you have to make a commitment away from the rink.' It's obvious he did that." Gomez has four goals and 18 points in 29 games this season.

Scott Gomez has turned his career around since rejoining the Devils.

Gomez's career went on a downward path not long after he left New Jersey following the 2006-2007 campaign. It got to the point where he recorded just 12 points in 46 games with Florida last season. In 2014-15, he has four goals and 14 points in 22 games. "I'm in the place now I want to be," said Gomez. "I'm glad to be back. I believe in this team and I'm glad I could come back. This is where I wanted to be. I proved that waiting. This is where I play my best hockey."
