The Devils have placed forward John Quenneville on the injured list due to a knee injury.

Quenneville sustained the injury a week ago and his placement on the injured list is retroactive to that date. He did not travel with his Devils' teammates and will miss at least Saturday night's contest against Tampa and Sunday's affair against the Hurricanes.

Taylor Hall has recorded at least one point in each of his last 16 games.

For what it's worth, the NHL isn't counting it as a 16-game point streak. The reason is that he missed three games due to a thumb injury during that span, so that broke the streak in their eyes even though Hall has recorded at least a point in each of the last 16 games he's been a part of. To the NHL though, it's actually a nine-game point streak, which would still make this the best of Hall's career. He has 23 goals and 60 points in 52 contests this season.

Kyle Palmieri has six goals in his last nine games.

This has been a rough season for Palmieri, in part due to a foot injury that cost him roughly a month, but he gotten hot as the Devils enter their stretch run. His recent efforts have pushed him to 14 goals and 25 points in 38 contests this season.
Feb 16 - 10:32 AM

Keith Kinkaid stopped 27 of 29 shots in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Carolina Hurricanes.

The Hurricanes scored the first goal of the game late in the first period, but that's the last lead they had in this one, as the Devils managed to score five of the next six goals. Since dropping three games in a row, Kinkaid has won back-to-back decisions. He now has a 12-7-2 record with a 3.24 goals-against-average and a .893 save percentage this season.
Feb 15 - 10:34 PM

Nico Hischier picked up a goal and two assists in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Carolina Hurricanes.

Hischier registered the primary assists on Damon Severson's first-period goal and Kyle Palmieri's go-ahead tally (3-2) in the middle frame. He added the insurance marker in the third to make it 4-2 for the Devils. The rookie finished the game with a plus-3 rating, two shots on goal and one hit in 14:46 of ice time. The 19-year-old has now picked up six points in his last three games. Hischier is up to 11 goals and 37 points in 57 games this season. Stefan Noesen scored a pair of goals for the Devils in the win.

Mirco Mueller will be a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against the Carolina Hurricanes.

He's now been scratched in four of the Devils' last five games. He has no goals and two assists in 18 games this season. Mueller has a nice future ahead of him, but he won't have any fantasy value this season.
Feb 15 - 6:40 PM

Keith Kinkaid will get the start in Thursday's game against the Carolina Hurricanes.
