Devante Smith-Pelly will be a healthy scratch in Tuesday's game against the Los Angeles Kings.

Smith-Pelly was solid when he first came over in a trade with Montreal last season, but he's struggled badly in 2016-17. This will be his second straight game in the press box. He has two goals and five assists in 41 games. Seth Helgeson will also be scratched in this one.

Yohann Auvitu has been assigned to the minors.

The Devils activated Auvitu from injured reserve and then sent him to Albany of the AHL. He has been sidelined since Jan. 7 with a lower-body injury and he has collected four points in 25 games.

Cory Schneider will get the nod against Los Angeles on Tuesday night.

He is ready to return to active duty after recovering from an illness. Schneider has been the Devils' backup for the last two games. He has won his last two starts, while stopping 53 of 57 shots. Schneider has a 14-14-7 record with a 2.69 GAA and a .910 save percentage this year.

John Moore (concussion) won't return on Tuesday or Thursday.

In other words, Moore won't return before the All-Star break. He last played on Dec. 31.

Cory Schneider (illness) is likely to get back into the crease on Tuesday night.

He is feeling much better and eating again, so he appears to be putting his stomach illness behind him. Schneider has served as New Jersey's backup for the last two games because of the illness.
Jan 23 - 2:14 PM

Beau Bennett (lower body) won't play Tuesday night.

He didn't take part in Monday's practice and he has been ruled out of New Jersey's game versus Los Angeles. Bennett has three goals and seven assists in 40 games this season.
Jan 23 - 2:11 PM

Andy Greene's recovery from an arm injury has stalled, according to coach John Hynes.

He hasn't suffered a setback, though. Greene has missed the last nine games. He skated before practice on Monday and won't play Tuesday versus Los Angeles.

Pavel Zacha scored his fourth of the season Saturday.

The Devils first pick and sixth overall in 2015 has two goals in his last three games as it appears that he is getting used to the NHL. He is going to be a good one and now may be the best time to buy low in keeper leagues. He has no value in one-year pools but has nice upside on the keeper side.

Cory Schneider suffered a setback Saturday from his illness.

While he felt better Friday, Saturday was a bit of a relapse and although he was the backup goalie, he still wasn't feeling well. Schneider is 14-14-7 with a 2.69 GAA and a .910 save percentage. He has not been the fantasy goalie like the last couple of seasons but he is capable of breaking loose at any time.
Jan 22 - 8:33 AM

Mike Cammalleri had a couple of assists Saturday.

Cammalleri has been in a terrible slump of late with only a goal and six points in his previous 23 games. He had 14 points in eight games before that so perhaps this is the start of another hot streak. He has 10 goals and 25 points in 42 games this season, so he has been a marginal fantasy player in deeper pools.
Jan 22 - 8:30 AM

Damon Severson was a force on the blueline Saturday as he blocked six shots in a 4-1 win over Philadelphia.

Severson was also a plus-one but his minus-22 rating this season leaves a lot to be desired. He has 22 points including three goals in 48 games thus far but the plus/minus really hurts his fantasy value.
Jan 22 - 8:25 AM

Miles Wood scored two goals to insure the win in a 4-1 victory over the Flyers Saturday.

Kyle Palmieri earned the game winning goal at the 15:51 mark of the second, but Wood provided insurance a little more than three minutes later. His second goal came at the 4:26 mark of the third. Before one gets excited, however, not that this was Wood’s first goal since he sunk the only puck in a 2-1 loss to Edmonton on January 7, and in the intervening six games he has earned only one assist.
Jan 22 - 12:19 AM

Keith Kinkaid faced 36 shots and let only one get past him as the Devils beat the Flyers 4-1 Saturday night.

Kinkaid has been an all-or-nothing goalie in recent games. His last six efforts have showcased three wins with save percentages greater than .964—including Saturday night’s .972 against Philly. His other three games ended with losses and save percentages below the .900 mark.
