Taylor Hall skated in his 400th career game Friday night.

He registered an assist in New Jersey's 4-1 loss to St. Louis to extend his point streak to four straight games. The 25-year-old winger has 20 points in 19 outings with the Devils and 384 points in his career.

Pavel Zacha (face) won't play Sunday versus the New York Rangers.

He has sat out three straight games already and Sunday's match will be the fourth he has missed since taking a puck to the face last Saturday.

A decision from Patrik Elias could come by January.

If he tells the Devils that he thinks he can still play then it will be up to the team to sign him as an unrestricted free agent. "He's not out of the picture," coach John Hynes said. "He's still going through the process of trying to figure out whether or not he's going to be able to play. He's still training, skating. He's been around with us, using the facilities. We knew coming into this year, it probably wasn’t going to be a first half of the season situation."

Keith Kainkaid allowed four goals on 32 shots in Friday's 4-1 loss to the St. Louis Blues.

This was New Jersey's first regulation loss at home this season. Cory Schneider wasn't very good in last night's loss to Montreal and Kinkaid failed to get the job done tonight. Kinkaid has a 3-2-2 record with a 2.79 goals-against-average and a .921 save percentage.
Dec 10 - 12:12 AM

P.A. Parenteau scored a goal in Friday's 4-1 loss to the St. Louis Blues.

Parenteau cut the Blues' lead to 2-1 at the 6:36 mark of the second period and snapped a 14-game goal drought in the process. Taylor Hall and Adam Henrique picked up the assists on the Devils' only goal. The 33-year-old has six goals and five assists in 27 games this season. He doesn't have any value in most fantasy leagues.
Dec 10 - 12:06 AM

Adam Henrique had a goal and an assist in New Jersey's 5-2 loss to Montreal Thursday night.

It was Henrique's third multi-point game of the season. He has six goals and 13 points in 26 contests.
Dec 9 - 11:11 AM

Cory Schneider allowed five goals on 49 shots in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Canadiens.

Schneider faced a lot of rubber, but he wasn't very good tonight. The Canadiens never trailed in this one and they appeared to be in control for most of the game. Schneider will definitely want to have Max Pacioretty's soft third period goal back. The Devils goalie has just one win in his last five outings. His record falls to 9-7-4 in 2016-17, and he'll go into his next start with a 2.72 goals-against-average and a .911 save percentage.
Dec 9 - 1:07 AM

Taylor Hall scored a goal and an assist in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Montreal Canadiens.

Hall helped set up Adam Henrique's first period goal that tied the game at one, and he picked up a marker of his own with his team trailing 4-1 at the time. The 25-year-old has now put together three consecutive multi-point efforts. He has eight goals and 19 points in 18 games this season. He's the best fantasy option on the Devils' roster and he needs to be started in all formats right now.
Dec 9 - 12:59 AM

Keith Kinkaid will be the Devils' starter Friday night.

It will be the second half of a back-to-back set, so it's not too surprising that Kinkaid is getting some work. He has a 3-1-2 record, 2.59 GAA, and .928 save percentage in six games.

Cory Schneider will be the Devils' starter on Thursday.

Schneider is going for his second straight win after stopping 22 of 24 shots in a 3-2 win Tuesday. He has a 9-6-4 record, 2.60 GAA, and .912 save percentage in 19 games this season.

Travis Zajac registered an assist in the Devils' 3-2 win over Vancouver on Tuesday.

He managed to return to the game, sporting a face shield, after he suffered a broken nose. Zajac is on a three-game point streak with him scoring three goals and three assists over that span. He's up to eight goals and 21 points in 25 games this season.
Dec 7 - 9:32 AM

Taylor Hall defended his hit on Philip Larsen following Tuesday's game.

Hall smashed Larsen behind the net during the contest and the head appeared to be the principal point of contact. At the same time, Larsen's head was down and it didn't look like Hall was targeting the head. Larsen was taken off the ice on a stretcher, but fortunately the Canucks reported that he was alert and had full motion. "I tried to keep all my extremities kind of in close and I just wanted to make contact chest to chest and sometimes it doesn’t work out like that," Hall said.

Taylor Hall is a man who is allergic to staying off the scoreboard.

In fact with his goal and assist during Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Canucks, Hall now has a trio of multi-point games over his last four. For the season he's up to seven goals and 17 points in 17 games.
Dec 7 - 12:28 AM

Kyle Palmieri snapped his eight-game goal drought during Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Canucks.

Palmieri shot at a 13.5% clip last year for his first 30-goal season. Tonight's marker gives him four on the season and an 8.7% clip. If he can rise back up to his career's 11.6% clip, then he can at least top 20-goals.
