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.

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.

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.

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.

Cory Schneider is too sick to play on Saturday against the Flyers, though he will backup Keith Kinkaid in the match.

He has a 2.69 GAA and .910 save percentage in 35 starts this season along with a 14-14-7 record.
Jan 21 - 6:04 PM

Jon Merrill will return to the Devils' blue line on Saturday against the Flyers.

Through 23 games this season the defender has posted four points along with 21 hits and 31 blocks. He has not played since Jan. 17th with an illness.
Jan 21 - 5:30 PM

Seth Helgeson will be scratched against the Flyers on Saturday.

The youngster has no points with a fight, six blocks and 10 hits in five games so far this season. He has seen an average of 13:48 of ice time per game.
Jan 21 - 5:29 PM

Sergey Kalinin will return to the Devils' lineup on Saturday against the Flyers.

The 25-year-old has not suited up since Jan. 12th with a lower body injury. Through 35 games this season he has four points and 45 hits.
Jan 21 - 5:25 PM

Luke Gazdic will finally get to play again on Saturday against the Flyers.

It'll be brute's ninth game of the season as he's still searching for his first points of the campaign. He also has 12 PIMs and 13 hits while seeing just 7:16 of ice time per game on average.
Jan 21 - 5:21 PM

Keith Kinkaid will face Philadelphia on Saturday.

Kinkaid beat the Flyers in his only other start against them, turning aside 25 of 27 shots faced. With Michal Neuvirth in the other net, and considering Kinkaid's .919 save percentage and 2.63 GAA in 13 games this season this could be a nice matchup yet.
Jan 21 - 5:08 PM

The Devils returned Blake Coleman to AHL Albany on Saturday.

The 25-year-old has posted his first career point over his five games up with the big boys. Down on the farm he has 13 goals and 23 points with 32 PIMS in 30 games.
