John Moore has surprisingly excelled in three-on-three overtime hockey.

Moore isn't seen as an offensive defenseman, but he's managed to score six overtime goals since the NHL adopted the three-on-three overtime structure in 2015-16. That's the most overtime goals of any defenseman over that span, topping Brent Burns and Shayne Gostisbehere, who have recorded four each. Keep in mind that Moore has 30 total goals since the start of 2015-16 while Gostisbehere has 76 and Burns has 102, so that highlights how surprising it is that Moore would top that list. For Moore's part though, he's downplayed his accomplishment. "I’m really fortunate to get the opportunity to get out there and play with some great players," Moore said. "I’m the recipient of some selfless hockey by a lot of guys."

Pavel Zacha was only on the ice for 9:40 minutes on Monday.

That came after Zacha spent the Devils' last two games in the press box. Devils coach John Hynes did seem somewhat upbeat about Zacha after the game though. "I thought he was getting himself involved in the game," Hynes said of Zacha. "I thought as the game went on, we tried to give him a little more. He got a little power play time in the third period. I thought he did some good things. His ice time wasn’t necessarily quote-unquote limited, it’s just that other lines got more ice time. We thought others were playing more and better." It will be interesting to see if Zacha's ice time does improve on Wednesday. As things currently stand though, we can't recommend owning Zacha in standard leagues despite his offensive potential.

Cory Schneider stopped 33 of 36 shots in Monday's 4-3 overtime win over the Minnesota Wild.

The Devils had a 3-1 lead in the third period before the Wild stormed back to force overtime. Schneider now owns an 8-4-2 record with a 2.88 goals-against-average and a .917 save percentage this season. He should continue to be a strong fantasy option for the rest of the week.

Adam Henrique picked up a goal and two assists in Monday's 4-3 overtime win over the Minnesota Wild.

Henrique opened the scoring late in the first period before setting up Will Butcher's goal in the third period and John Moore's tally in overtime. Henrique finished the night with a plus-2 rating and two shots on goal in 16:59 of ice time. The Devils forward has four goals and eight assists in 20 games this season. The goal put an end to his 10-game goalless drought.

Dalton Prout will be a healthy scratch on Monday night as the New Jersey Devils visit the Minnesota Wild.

Prout has no points in four games so far this season. He racks up penalty minutes but won't contribute much offensively for his team. His most notable NHL moment remains his knockdown of former Bruins' enforcer Milan Lucic while Prout was with the Blue Jackets. Joining him in the press box in Minnesota will be Stefan Noesen and Jimmy Hayes.
Nov 20 - 7:40 PM

Cory Schneider will start Monday against Minnesota.

Schneider surrendered five goals on 22 shots to Winnipeg in his last outing, so he will be looking to bounce back against the Wild. He has a 7-4-2 record this season with a 2.87 goals-against average and a .917 save percentage.
Nov 20 - 1:21 PM

Adam Henrique found himself on the fourth line in practice Sunday.

That is a huge drop from the top-six forward that Henrique has been accustomed to playing of late has he has 50 goals in the last two seasons. Henrique has only three goals and nine points in 19 games this season and nothing in his last four games. Reserve him for now.
Nov 20 - 6:38 AM

After being a healthy scratch for four of the last five games, Pavel Zacha found himself on the second line in practice Sunday.

Zacha was on the left side with Travis Zajac and Jesper Bratt. Zacha has two goals and five points in 15 games but both goals were scored in the third period on October 11 and he is goalless since. Zacha was drafted sixth overall in 2015 so there is still lots of time for him to reach his potential.
Nov 20 - 6:35 AM

Pavel Zacha was a healthy scratch on Saturday for the fourth time in the last five games.

That is not great for the sixth overall pick in 2015 who needs to be playing as he is only 20. A trip to the minors could be in the cards for Zacha who has two goals and five points in 15 games.
Nov 19 - 8:06 AM

Will Butcher found the back of the net and registered an assist in the Devils' 5-2 loss to Winnipeg Saturday afternoon.

It was Butcher's first goal of his NHL career and he has 15 points in 19 contests this season. Brian Gibbons also found the back of the net for the Devils. Taylor Hall, Nico Hischier, and Blake Coleman each registered an assist in the losing effort.
Nov 18 - 5:46 PM

Cory Schneider stopped 17 of 22 shots before being pulled in the Devils' 5-2 loss to Winnipeg Saturday afternoon.

Schneider was perfect in the first period, but the Jets rolled over the Devils in the second frame. Keith Kinkaid took over and stopped the 12 shots he faced, but the damage was already done.
Nov 18 - 5:39 PM

Pavel Zacha is likely to be a healthy scratch Saturday afternoon against the Jets.

He sat in the press box Thursday against Toronto and was rotated in and out of Friday's scrimmages as a fourth liner. With Travis Zajac and Brian Boyle back in the New Jersey lineup, Zacha's playing time going forward is very much in question. As he can be dispatched to the AHL without clearing waivers, a demotion is also a very real possibility.
Nov 18 - 10:26 AM

Confirming an earlier post, Cory Schneider will get the start Saturday afternoon against Winnipeg.

The game starts at 3:00 ET so be sure to set your lineup early with Schneider in it.
Nov 18 - 10:18 AM

Cory Schneider will be New Jersey's starting goaltender on Saturday.

Schneider has stopped 56 of 58 shots over his last two contests. He has a 7-3-2 record, 2.64 GAA, and .924 save percentage in 13 games this season.
Nov 17 - 5:55 PM

Cory Schneider stopped 24 of 25 shots in a 1-0 overtime loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Schneider made the save of the night, somehow getting the paddle down to rob Van Riemsdyk in tight of a sure goal. The Devils' netminder came within three seconds of recording his first shutout of the year, but William Nylander had other plans in the extra frame. The loss drops Schneider's record to 7-3-2 with a 2.64 goals against average and a .924 save percentage.
