Date: Team: Pos:

Marcus Johansson (knee) is regarded as questionable for Monday's game.

Johansson did practice on Sunday, but was serving as an extra forward. If Johansson doesn't play on Monday, he'll probably make his return on Thursday instead.
Dec 17 - 3:05 PM

Kyle Palmieri (foot) will draw into the Devils' lineup on Monday.

That's not too surprising after Palmieri participated in Sunday's practice, but now his return has been confirmed. This will be his first game in roughly a month. He's projected to play on the top line with Taylor Hall and Nico Hischier.
Dec 17 - 3:04 PM

Taylor Hall (knee) will indeed return on Monday.

Hall seemed probable after completing Sunday's practice and now the Devils have confirmed that he'll be back in the lineup. He missed two games as a result of the knee contusion.
Dec 17 - 3:02 PM

Marcus Johansson (ankle) took part in Sunday's practice.

Johansson was skating as an extra forward though, so he probably won't rejoin the Devils on Monday. He's missed New Jersey's last three games.
Dec 17 - 12:18 PM

There's a good chance that Kyle Palmieri (foot) will be available on Monday.

Palmieri was able to get through Sunday's practice, which is an encouraging sign. He skated on the top line with Taylor Hall and Nico Hischier on Sunday, so those are his likely linemates if he does return.
Dec 17 - 12:17 PM

Taylor Hall (knee) took part in Sunday's practice.

Nothing is set in stone yet, but there's a good chance Hall will return to the Devils' lineup on Monday. He's been out for two straight contests.
Dec 17 - 12:16 PM

Marcus Johansson (ankle) skated on his own Saturday.

He is expected to be a participant in practice on Sunday and could return to action Monday if all goes well as the Devils are getting close to being healthy. The winger has four goals and seven points in 15 games this season after a career-high 24 goals and 58 points last season for the Capitals.
Dec 17 - 7:33 AM

Kyle Palmieri (foot) did not skate on Saturday.

Palmieri took the day off but the good news is that he is expected to partake in a full practice Sunday. Depending on how he is feeling, it's possible that Palmieri will return to the New Jersey lineup in time for Monday's game with Anaheim. Palmieri has four goals and nine points in 13 injury-riddled games. He had 26 goals last season after a 30 goal performance the previous season so he certainly knows where the net is. Stay tuned.
Dec 17 - 7:30 AM

Taylor Hall (knee) skated on Saturday and is expected to participate in a full practice Sunday.

If all goes well, Hall should be back in the Devils lineup on Monday. He has 11 goals and 31 points in 30 games this season and his return will be highly anticipated. Hall has missed the last two games. Get him back in your lineup if he is able to finish practice Sunday without any setbacks.
Dec 17 - 7:27 AM

The New Jersey Devils have announced that forward Nick Lappin will report to Binghampton of the American Hockey League.

Lappin appeared in two NHL games, picking up one goal. This is an indication that one of Kyle Palmieri, Taylor Hall or Marcus Johansson will return on Tuesday against the Ducks.
Dec 16 - 12:05 PM

Taylor Hall skated on Friday for the first time since he injured his knee in a game this past Monday.

Hall has a knee contusion but seems to be recovering. The Devils will not practice on Saturday, so we will have to wait until Sunday to see if Hall joins his teammates for the workout. If he does, there is a good chance he will play Monday against Anaheim.

Cory Schneider may get more opportunities to play in back-to-back games for the Devils going forward.

Schneider played extremely well in a 2-1 loss to Montreal on Thursday night and Devils' coach John Hynes went right back to him for Friday night's contest against the Stars, in which he stopped 28 shots and won 5-2. Prior to Friday night's contest, the Devils had started Keith Kinkaid in one game of the team's seven back-to-back situations this season. "When you look at the back-to-backs, (Rangers goalie Henrik) Lundqvist played back-to-back against Washington and then us, and beat us", Hynes said. "That's what we need. We need him to be our guy."

Cory Schneider allowed two goals on 30 shots in Friday's 5-2 win over the Dallas Stars.

One of the two goals Dallas scored came while they were on the power play, while the other came at even-strength. Schneider has just one regulation loss in his last six games (4-1-1). He currently owns a 13-6-4 record with a 2.58 goals-against-average and a .921 save percentage this season. This was a pretty good performance from a guy who was playing his second game in two nights.
Dec 15 - 10:21 PM

Brian Boyle scored two goals and an assist in Friday's 5-2 win over the Dallas Stars.

Boyle's power play goal at the 16:39 mark of the second period gave the Devils a 3-2 lead at the time. He then registered a helper on Nick Lappin's third-period goal before scoring his second of the game into an empty-net. The veteran finished the game with a plus-2 rating, three shots on goal and one hit in 15:10 of ice time. Boyle now has eight goals and three assists in 22 games this season. The fact that he's accomplished this after battling cancer earlier this season is pretty remarkable. Steven Santini and Blake Coleman also scored for the Devils in this one.
Dec 15 - 10:13 PM

Dalton Prout will be a healthy scratch in Friday's game against the Dallas Stars.

Prout hasn't played since Nov. 3. He has no points and a minus-2 rating in four games this season. Ben Lovejoy will also be scratched in this one. Taylor Hall is out with an injury.
