Keith Kinkaid (groin) is ready to rejoin the Devils' lineup.

New Jersey has already taken the step of sending third-string goaltender Scott Clemmensen to the minors. Kinkaid has a 2.59 GAA and .915 save percentage in 12 contests in 2014-15.

Scott Clemmensen has been sent to AHL Albany.

Keith Kinkaid is ready to return from a groin injury, which is why Clemmensen was demoted. Clemmensen has a 4.71 GAA and .852 save percentage in three contests in 2014-15.

Do not be surprised if Martin Havlat is dealt by Monday.

Havlat has been a healthy scratch in six of the previous seven games and was a minus-three with no points in the game he did play so the Devils really have no interest in keeping him. He could use a change of scenery as he has only five goals and 14 points this season with a minus-12 rating. He had no comment after Saturday's game with regards to being dealt so he is not a happy camper.

Scott Gomez could find himself on a new team when the NHL trade deadline comes to an end on Monday.

Gomez is having a nice offensive season, his first in four seasons as he has five goals and 23 points in 38 games. There are plenty of playoff bound teams looking for a boost in offense and Gomez could be targeted by some clubs.

Cory Schneider improved to 23-23-6 as the New Jersey Devils beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 2-0 on Saturday.

He stopped all 33 shots for his fourth shutout of 2014-15 and second in his last four games. His record isn't great, but a .927 save percentage argues that he deserves better.

Andy Greene scored the game-winning goal as the New Jersey Devils beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 2-0 on Saturday.

The 32-year-old now has two goals and 14 points in 63 games this season. Greene seemed like the favorite to be New Jersey's best offensive defenseman this season, but it really hasn't been the case.

Peter Harrold will be scratched against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday night.

It'll be Harrold's second straight game in the stands, and there's little indication that that may change soon. Harrold has three points, 29 hits, and 32 blocks in as many games this season.

It looks like Martin Havlat will be a healthy scratch for the New Jersey Devils on Saturday.

Havlat's certainly familiar with being an unhealthy one. He's been a minor contributor this season (five goals, 14 points, -12 rating in 38 points) and has the name recognition to be at least moderately interesting during the trade deadline.

Keith Kinkaid is close to returning to action following a groin injury a week ago.

Kinkaid was worried the injury was a lot more serious than it turned out to be. "I was really worried," Kinkaid said. "It's felt better every day. The MRI was good. It just takes time. It hasn't even been a week yet and I feel pretty good. The push was fine and the split was fine. Then I guess my weight eventually fell down and I felt a little tweak," Kinkaid said when explaining what happened. "I didn't feel comfortable to finish and put the team at risk. I don't know if I could have played at my full potential there and we needed those two points. If I wasn't feeling up to it, I didn't want to hurt them." Kinkaid is 3-4-3 with a 2.59 GAA and a .915 save percentage in limited time as Cory Schneider's backup.

Damon Severson (ankle) could return to the New Jersey lineup as early as Tuesday.

By the time Tuesday rolls around Severson will have missed 31 games. He got off to a great start and led the Devils in power play time on ice before his injury so look for him to regain his spot on the point eventually. "It feels like it's soon. My body, as far as the ankle, is healed. My conditioning is just a step off," Severson said. "I need those few extra days of conditioning to make sure I'm back up to speed. "I'm just waiting to get back. It's been a long wait. Every day it's gotten a little better. I haven't had any setbacks or anything like that, so that's been a positive for me." Stay tuned as Severson had four goals and 12 points in 32 games with six assists on the power play before getting hurt on December 15.

The Newark Star-Ledger is reporting that Lou Lamoriello will remain the GM of the New Jersey Devils even if they miss the playoffs.

Well, missing the playoffs looks like a certainty with the Devils in 12th place, nine points out of eighth. "He knows the game and he knows the game well," goaltender Cory Schneider said. "I think sometimes he even has a different perspective of the game than most other people do."

Jordin Tootoo stretched his point streak to five games with his sixth goal of the season Friday.

That's quite a streak for a player more renowned for his toughness as Tootoo has 10 points with 61 minutes in the sin bin in 48 games. If you have had him in your lineup of late, kudos to you.
Feb 28 - 7:59 AM

Martin Havlat was a minus-three in his return to the New Jersey lineup on Friday.

Havlat had missed the previous five games as a healthy scratch. With only five goals and 14 points in 38 games, Havlat could be nearing the end of his NHL career.

Cory Schneider will get the start against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday evening.

Schneider comes in with a 22-23-6 record with a .926 save percentage and a 2.23 GAA through 56 appearances this season. It'll also be his seventh start of the season without any rest between games. He's 2-4-0 through the first six with 16 goals against.

Cory Schneider allowed three goals on 34 shots in Friday's 3-2 OT loss to Boston.

The Devils found themselves down 2-0 in the third period but they were able to fight back and force overtime. Unfortunately for the Devils, they weren't able to come all the way back but they did manage to grind out a point in the standings. The loss will still hurt because the Devils are chasing the Bruins for the final playoff spot in the East. New Jersey is a long shot to make the playoffs. They are now nine points behind Boston and they may sell off more of their veterans between now and the trade deadline.
