The Time: 7:00 PM
The Broadcast: Tv set – MSG
Schneider: On Sunday morning, the New Jersey Devils despatched down MacKenzie Blackwood to Binghamton, as Cory Schneider’s conditioning stint was around. This might have been a oversight to mail down Blackwood in phrases of competitiveness, but there is not a complete good deal the Devils can do with this problem. Jogging a 3-goalie rotation is rough, and the other choices are buying and selling Keith Kinkaid or waiving Schneider and his six million dollar deal. I do not know who will begin tonight, but part of me needs it to be Schneider, out of curiosity if he can pull out a earn.
Return of Kovalchuk: On February 4, 2010, Ilya Kovalchuk was traded to the New Jersey Devils, and he made his debut with the staff on February 5, 2010, in a 4-3 comeback earn versus the Toronto Maple Leafs. Not only was it a single of the very best games I can imagine of, it established a tone for Kovalchuk’s dominance. On the ninth anniversary of that recreation, Kovalchuk will return to the Prudential Middle for the initially time considering that he still left for SKA St. Petersburg.
This is the headline for tonight’s recreation, and I have been searching ahead to this matchup considering that the routine was introduced. That explained, I will be at The Rock tonight, to see our outdated star in man or woman.
Jeff Carter — not on bench for 3rd time period vs NYR — has a decreased-body injury

If Carter is not readily available for the Kings, that would be a severe blow to the staff. Carter has 25 factors in 51 games, putting him fourth on the staff – a single of 7 players with 20 factors on the Kings. He is also the only ahead on the Kings in the double digits in ability engage in factors (12).
Devils Injury Report: Kyle Palmieri and Andy Greene are very good to go for tonight, soon after not practising. Travis Zajac and Ben Lovejoy might be recreation-time selections, per Amanda Stein. Stefan Noesen and Joey Anderson are ruled out, and there is no update on Taylor Hall.
The expectation is that #NJDevils Palmieri and Greene (who took maintenance days now) will be completely ready to go tomorrow versus LA.
⚠️ Whether Zajac and Lovejoy are completely ready is a ‘wait and see’ circumstance dependent on how they come to feel. Both equally skated now.

If Jeff Carter is out with injury tonight, that would lessen the blow if Travis Zajac is not able to engage in as very well. I would like to see Travis Zajac and Blake Coleman shut down Ilya Kovalchuk, but that might not be probable tonight. Without Zajac, Nico Hischier would most likely be participating in a complete recreation against Anze Kopitar, which is by no means an simple task. But, as Hischier has survived without Taylor Hall for the previous several months, I’m positive he would be able to handle the Kopitar matchup.
The commencing goaltender and further injury reports will be supplied by John Hynes later on now.
Your Feelings: What do you imagine about tonight’s recreation? Will you be there to see Kovalchuk? Will you be booing? How loudly? Who do you want to begin in internet tonight?
