Taylor Hall picked up an assist in a 3-1 loss to the Montreal Canadiens.

It first appeared that Hall tipped in Santini's point shot, but Santini has been credited with the goal. Hall leads all Devils with 30 points this season, albeit in just 37 games this season. He is having a good season with the Devils but he hasn't exactly jump started their offense like they had hoped.

Keith Kinkaid stopped 23 of 26 shots in a 3-1 loss to the Montreal Canadiens on Friday.

Kinkaid had a good game in goal, making big saves on both Philip Danault and Jacob De La Rose. However, like it's been for the past few seasons, the Devils just couldn't score enough goals to come away with the win. Kinkaid has a 5-5-2 record and he doesn't have any fantasy value.
Jan 20 - 10:49 PM

Luke Gazdic will be scratched against Montreal on Friday.

Through eight games so far this season the rugged winger has no points with 12 PIMs and 13 hits, while averaging just 7:16 of ice time per night.
Jan 20 - 6:40 PM

Seth Helgeson will indeed play Friday against Montreal.

Helgeson has seen just four games this season with little to nothing to his credit thus far. Through 45 career games he has just three points along with 40 PIMs, 47 blocks and 95 hits.
Jan 20 - 6:03 PM

Jon Merrill won't play in Friday's match with Montreal due to illness.

Through 23 games so far this season Merrill has posted four points along with 21 hits and 31 blocks.
Jan 20 - 6:01 PM

Cory Schneider (illness) will dress on Friday, but as the backup goalie.

Schneider didn't skate Friday morning due to the sickness. Keith Kinkaid will play between the pipes.
Jan 20 - 6:00 PM

Keith Kinkaid will be in net against Montreal on Friday.

The career backup netminder has had his best season yet thus far, posting a 5-4-2 record with a 2.59 GAA and a .921 save percentage in 12 games. Al Montoya will be in Montreal's net, by the way.
Jan 20 - 5:59 PM

Yohann Auvitu (lower body) isn't expected to return on Friday.

Auvitu feels he might have pushed himself too hard because he was feeling better, but now he's sore. He's been listed as day-to-day and it seems reasonable to continue to regard him as that.
Jan 20 - 11:58 AM

Vernon Fiddler (lower body) feels he's getting close to returning.

Fiddler isn't expected to return on Saturday though. He last played on Dec. 27.
Jan 20 - 11:48 AM

Cory Schneider isn't skating with the Devils on Friday due to an illness.

There's still a chance that Schneider will start Friday night, but that doesn't seem likely. He has a 2.69 GAA and .910 save percentage in 35 starts this season.
Jan 20 - 11:12 AM

John Moore (concussion) took to the ice on Thursday.

It was Moore's first skate since he was hurt on Dec. 21. He has five goals and 13 points in 37 contests in 2016-17.
Jan 19 - 1:10 PM

Patrik Elias has continued to skate and still hopes to return to the NHL.

Elias has been testing his surgically-repaired knee. "I feel good one week, next week I’m ready to jump on ice, then the next week I don’t feel so good and I’m ready to call it quits, so it’s hard," Elias said. "At the same time, you have to be honest with yourself. The game is changing and has changed so much and you have to know when the time is right for you to just go and do other things." Elias remains unsigned and is hoping that a decision is made by early February on if the Devils are going to sign him for what's left of the 2016-17 campaign. He's also open to attempting a comeback next season, so even if nothing happens in February that might not be the end of his playing career. That said, Elias will turn 41 in April.
Jan 19 - 8:54 AM

Blake Coleman recorded his first career point on Tuesday.

Coleman assisted on Beau Bennett's game-winning goal versus Minnesota. Coleman was playing in his fourth career game. The 25-year-old also has 13 goals and 23 points in 34 AHL contests this season.
Jan 18 - 5:07 AM

Adam Henrique found the back of the net in New Jersey's 4-3 win over Minnesota on Tuesday.

Henrique snapped his five-game point drought. It was his 11th goal and 21st point in 46 contests. At this rate he'll probably finish the season at the low 40s in terms of points, which isn't unusual for him, but would be down from his 50-point showing last season.
Jan 18 - 5:05 AM

Taylor Hall's point streak reached four games on Tuesday.

Hall registered an assist in the Devils' 4-3 win over Minnesota. He has 11 goals and 29 points in 36 contests in 2016-17.
