Joseph Blandisi scored his first of the season Sunday.

It was Blandisi's first goal in over a year as he last scored on February 14, 2016. To be fair, Blandisi has spent most of the season with Albany of the AHL where he has seven goals and 23 points in 28 games. He has little, if any, fantasy value.

Keith Kinkaid succumbed to six Islander goals on 32 shots in a 6-4 loss to New York on Sunday.

Kinkaid, who had not seen any action since allowing four goals in 30 minutes on Jan. 26, was not sharp in his return. Kinkaid falls to 6-7-2 this season with a 2.81 goals against average and .913 save percentage.
Feb 19 - 11:12 PM

Taylor Hall rang in a goal plus two assists in Sunday's 6-4 loss to the New York Islanders.

The 25-year-old now has 14 goals and 40 points in 49 games in his first season in New Jersey. Hall fired five shots on goal during the game.

Keith Kinkaid will be in net against the Islanders on Sunday.

In 16 games this season the backup netminder has gone 6-6-2 with a 2.59 GAA and a .920 save percentage. He also carries a career 0-0-2 record with six goals on 76 combined shots in three games against the Isles.
Feb 19 - 4:26 PM

Mike Cammalleri will be scratched for the second straight game during Sunday's rematch with the Islanders.

Mark it the first time in the talented veteran's career that he's a healthy scratch in consecutive games. Cammalleri has not found the back of the net in 18 games and while he has 10 goals and 30 points in 51 games, the Devils expect a lot more out of him offensively.
Feb 19 - 4:23 PM

Pavel Zacha scored on the power play Saturday.

It turned out to be the winning goal as Zacha gave New Jersey a 3-0 lead and then saw the Islanders score twice before the game ended at 3-2. Zacha has eight goals and 16 points in 50 games this season but has come on of late as the sixth overall pick in the 2015 Draft has six goals and nine points in his last 13 games. Grab him now in all keeper leagues if he is available.

Mike Cammalleri could be a healthy scratch on Sunday as well.

Coach John Hynes did not say if there would be any changes to the lineup that won 3-2 over the Islanders on Saturday. "It’s a great question," Hynes said when asked about Sunday’s lineup. "I don’t have the answer. I don’t know who’s going to be in the lineup." Cammalleri has not found the back of the net in 18 games and while he has 10 goals and 30 points in 51 games, the Devils expect a lot more out of him offensively.
Feb 19 - 7:24 AM

Travis Zajac had a goal and an assist in a 3-2 win over the Islanders Saturday night.

Zajac scored his 11th goal and gained his 22nd assist against the cross river rivals. He assisted on Devante Smith-Pelly’s goal at the 7:10 mark of the first. His own goal came while the Devils were on penalty kill for Taylor Hall’s roughing penalty. Zajac has gained five points in the last six games. These games include another multi-point game in a 5-1 win against the Blue Jackets on February 4, were he also scored a goal and an assist.
Feb 18 - 10:21 PM

Cory Schneider had a busy Saturday night facing 42 shots while giving up two goals in a 3-2 win over the Islanders.

Schneider had a shutout going through 49 minutes into the game, but a snarl in the crease that bordered on goalie interference by John Tavares allowed Andrew Ladd to put the Islanders on the scoreboard. Schneider has alternated winning and losing in his last five contests, but he has been solid with a save percentage greater than .900 in all. Saturday night, he recorded a save percentage of .952.
Feb 18 - 10:08 PM

Devante Smith-Pelly will return to the lineup after being scratched for six games on Saturday against the Islanders.

He's slotted to skate to the right of Miles Wood and Joseph Blandisi on the team's fourth line.Through 43 games he has just seven points and 72 hits to his credit,
Feb 18 - 5:26 PM

Viktor Loov was traded to the Devils for Sergey Kalinin.

Loov has six points in and 43 penalty minutes in 41 games with the Toronto Marlies of the AHL this season. He had two assists in four appearances with the Maple Leafs last year. Loov will report to Albany of the AHL.
Feb 18 - 3:33 PM

Mike Cammalleri will be a healthy scratch on Saturday.

He skated with the extras during the morning session and said he was "displeased" to not be in the lineup. Cammalleri hasn't scored a goal in 18 straight games and he has nine assists during that span.
Feb 18 - 12:09 PM

Kyle Quincey (upper body) could be a possibility for Saturday night depending on what happens at the morning skate.

He hasn't played since Feb. 4 because of an upper-body injury, but he is close to returning to the fold.
Feb 18 - 8:50 AM

Keith Kinkaid will start either Sunday versus the Islanders or against the Senators on Tuesday night.

Coach John Haynes will stick with Cory Schneider for an eighth straight start on Saturday. "He's going to get one of the next three games," Hynes said of Kinkaid. "It just depends which one. He's worked hard, he certainly deserves an opportunity to get in there. The stretch from San Jose through (Tuesday's) Ottawa game is a lot of hockey. We feel like we have two good goalies. We don't think it'll be in Cory's best interests to play all those games." The Devils backup has posted a 6-6-2 record with a 2.59 goals-against average and a .920 save percentage this season.
Feb 18 - 8:46 AM

Cory Schneider will take on the Islanders on Saturday.

He's been significantly better since the calendar turned to 2017. In 17 games since Schneider has posted an 8-5-3 record with a .930 save percentage with just 33 goals against.
