Pavel Zacha sustained a possible head injury during Tuesday's game.

Zacha crashed head-first into the boards due to a check from Ottawa's Derick Brassard. Zacha left the game and the Devils didn't offer an update afterwards, other than to say he had an upper-body injury. He'll be re-evaluated on Wednesday, so we might have more information in the near future. The rookie has eight goals and 16 points in 52 contests this season.

Cory Schneider allowed two goals on 23 shots in Tuesday's 2-1 loss to the Ottawa Senators.

Schneider had no chance on Kyle Turris' goal in the second period. Ottawa's other goal, which was scored by Erik Karlsson, came on the power play. Despite giving up just two goals in each of his last four games, Schneider has come away with just two wins during that span. He has a 19-18-8 record with a 2.61 goals-against-average and a .915 save percentage. His team's inability to score goals will limit his fantasy value.

Travis Zajac scored a power play goal in Tuesday's 2-1 loss to the Ottawa Senators.

It took the Devils more than two periods to get on the board, but Zajac finally managed to cut Ottawa's lead to 2-1 at the 6:37 mark of the third frame. Unfortunately for the Devils, that's as close as they'd come to tying the game. Zajac has now picked up at least one point in three straight games and four of his last five. He has 12 goals and 35 points in 59 games.
Feb 21 - 9:38 PM

Beau Bennett will be a healthy scratch in Tuesday's game against the Senators.

Bennett skated in each of New Jersey's last three games. He has three goals and 10 points in 43 games this season. Seth Helgeson and John Moore will also serve as scratches in tonight's game.
Feb 21 - 6:46 PM

Cory Schneider will tend to the crease on Tuesday against Ottawa.

He has won two of his last three outings, while permitting just two goals against in each appearance. Schneider has recorded a 2.15 goals-against average and a .936 save percentage in seven starts this month.
Feb 21 - 1:30 PM

Kyle Quincey will be back from an upper-body injury when the Devils host Ottawa on Tuesday.

He has missed the last six contests. Quincey is slated to join Damon Severson on the third pairing.
Feb 21 - 1:28 PM

Mike Cammalleri will get back into the lineup on Tuesday night.

He was scratched for the past two games. Cammalleri is projected to play alongside Jacob Josefson and Stefan Noesen on the third line. He has 10 goals and 30 points in 51 contests this season.
Feb 21 - 1:26 PM

Joseph Blandisi scored his first of the season Sunday.

It was Blandisi's first goal in over a year as he last scored on February 14, 2016. To be fair, Blandisi has spent most of the season with Albany of the AHL where he has seven goals and 23 points in 28 games. He has little, if any, fantasy value.
Feb 20 - 8:19 AM

Keith Kinkaid succumbed to six Islander goals on 32 shots in a 6-4 loss to New York on Sunday.

Kinkaid, who had not seen any action since allowing four goals in 30 minutes on Jan. 26, was not sharp in his return. Kinkaid falls to 6-7-2 this season with a 2.81 goals against average and .913 save percentage.
Feb 19 - 11:12 PM

Taylor Hall rang in a goal plus two assists in Sunday's 6-4 loss to the New York Islanders.

The 25-year-old now has 14 goals and 40 points in 49 games in his first season in New Jersey. Hall fired five shots on goal during the game.
Feb 19 - 11:07 PM

Keith Kinkaid will be in net against the Islanders on Sunday.

In 16 games this season the backup netminder has gone 6-6-2 with a 2.59 GAA and a .920 save percentage. He also carries a career 0-0-2 record with six goals on 76 combined shots in three games against the Isles.
Feb 19 - 4:26 PM

Mike Cammalleri will be scratched for the second straight game during Sunday's rematch with the Islanders.

Mark it the first time in the talented veteran's career that he's a healthy scratch in consecutive games. Cammalleri has not found the back of the net in 18 games and while he has 10 goals and 30 points in 51 games, the Devils expect a lot more out of him offensively.
Feb 19 - 4:23 PM

Pavel Zacha scored on the power play Saturday.

It turned out to be the winning goal as Zacha gave New Jersey a 3-0 lead and then saw the Islanders score twice before the game ended at 3-2. Zacha has eight goals and 16 points in 50 games this season but has come on of late as the sixth overall pick in the 2015 Draft has six goals and nine points in his last 13 games. Grab him now in all keeper leagues if he is available.
Feb 19 - 7:28 AM

Mike Cammalleri could be a healthy scratch on Sunday as well.

Coach John Hynes did not say if there would be any changes to the lineup that won 3-2 over the Islanders on Saturday. "It’s a great question," Hynes said when asked about Sunday’s lineup. "I don’t have the answer. I don’t know who’s going to be in the lineup." Cammalleri has not found the back of the net in 18 games and while he has 10 goals and 30 points in 51 games, the Devils expect a lot more out of him offensively.
Feb 19 - 7:24 AM

Travis Zajac had a goal and an assist in a 3-2 win over the Islanders Saturday night.

Zajac scored his 11th goal and gained his 22nd assist against the cross river rivals. He assisted on Devante Smith-Pelly’s goal at the 7:10 mark of the first. His own goal came while the Devils were on penalty kill for Taylor Hall’s roughing penalty. Zajac has gained five points in the last six games. These games include another multi-point game in a 5-1 win against the Blue Jackets on February 4, were he also scored a goal and an assist.
