Pavel Zacha saw his six game points streak end on Saturday.

Zacha had an assist in each game during the streak. He has eight goals and 22 points so while this season has not been a fantasy gem by any means, next season should be a lot better for the 19-year-old. Do not forget about the sixth overall pick in the 2015 Draft next season in deeper leagues.

Keith Kinkaid will get the start against Dallas on Sunday.

It will be Kinkaid's fourth start in the last seven games as they have now been officially eliminated from playoff contention. Kinkaid is 7-11-2 this season with a 2.77 GAA and a .913 save percentage. It's awfully hard to recommend him in DFS games on Sunday.

Cory Schneider gave up three goals on 28 shots Saturday night as the Devils lost 3-1 to the Hurricanes.

For a brief moment, it appeared that Schneider had turned his bad fortune around. In his most recent outing against Rangers Tuesday, he won his first game in nine attempts. That snapped a nine-game losing streak. Saturday night’s .893 save percentage was on par with his average of .896 for the past 10 games.

Travis Zajac scored the only Devils goal Saturday night as they lost a 3-1 contest to the Hurricanes.

This is only the second time in his last 10 games that Zajac has scored a point. He had two assists against the Flyers March 16. This current negative streak came on the heels of five consecutive games in which he scored every time.

Jacob Josefson's upper-body injury is not a concussion.

Josefson is hoping to return before the end of the regular season, but there's no timetable for his return. He has a goal and eight points in 35 games this season.

Cory Schneider will probably play between the pipes on Saturday.

Schneider was the first goaltender off the ice following the morning skate, which is usually a good gauge of who the starter will be. He has a 20-23-10 record, 2.71 GAA, and .911 save percentage in 55 games this season.
Mar 25 - 11:29 AM

Nick Lappin has been sent to the minors.

Lappin has four goals and seven points in 43 games with New Jersey this season. He also has nine goals and 20 points in 24 AHL contests.

Although Keith Kinkaid has started in three of the Devils' last five games, Devils coach John Hynes isn't committing to him getting roughly half of the remaining nine starts.

"We’ll see," Hynes said. "The objective, like everything, is we want to give guys opportunities but it also comes down to performance, too. We’ll give guys opportunities as long as they play well and deserve them. We’re not just going to keep giving guys opportunities if they’re not going to perform at a level that warrants them being in a game all the time." Kinkaid has done fairly well recently while Cory Schneider has struggled with a 2.97 GAA and .897 save percentage in seven March contests. The fact that it's even a reasonable possibility that Kinkaid might start in four or more of the Devils' remaining games is big for the backup goaltender and another knock on Schneider's disappointing campaign.

Keith Kinkaid allowed three goals on 29 shots in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The Devils scored the game's first goal, but they eventually allowed Toronto to score the next three. Kinkaid now owns a 7-11-2 record with a 2.77 goals-against-average and a .913 save percentage this season. He isn't worth owning in any fantasy formats.
Mar 23 - 10:47 PM

John Moore scored two goals in New Jersey's 4-2 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Moore opened the scoring just 2:59 into the game, while his second tally cut Toronto's third-period lead to 3-2. Unfortunately for the Devils, that's as close as they'd come to tying things up. Moore has nine goals and 10 assists in 54 games this season.

Team Canada shouldn't expect to have Taylor Hall for the World Championships this go-round.

Hall noted that he's likely to skip the tournament to heal up from some injuries that he's playing through instead. Hall has posted nine goals and 15 points in 18 games for Team Canada since joining the NHL.
Mar 23 - 3:59 PM

Pavel Zacha is on a five-game point streak.

Zacha extended that run with an assist in the Devils' 3-2 overtime win over the Rangers on Tuesday. He has eight goals and 21 points in 60 contests this season.
Mar 22 - 10:00 AM

Cory Schneider turned aside 38 of 40 shots in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win over the New York Rangers.

Schneider came up with a couple of huge saves in overtime, including a diving poke-check right before Joseph Blandisi scored the game-winning goal in the extra frame. Schneider now has a 20-23-10 record with a 2.71 goals-against-average and a .911 save percentage.
Mar 21 - 10:30 PM

Joseph Blandisi scored a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 3-2 OT win over the New York Rangers.

Blandisi picked up the primary assist on John Quenneville's power play goal in the second period before adding the game-winning goal in the extra frame. Blandisi finished the game with a plus-1 rating and two shots on goal in 15:15 of ice time. The Devils forward has now scored six points in his last six games. He's up to three goals and eight points in 20 contests.
Mar 21 - 10:19 PM

Blake Pietila is a healthy scratch in Tuesday's game against the New York Rangers.

He's skated in six games this season, and he has no points and a minus-6 rating. Dalton Prout will also watch the game from the press box.
