The New Jersey Devils landed in Colorado yesterday ahead of their tilt with the Avalanche tonight.
All those expected to be on the ice for practice on Tuesday were in attendance. The workflow remained mostly the same, however, there was one minor tweak.
Tyler Toffoli and Ondrej Palat flipped spots on the left side. Now, Toffoli is skating with Michale McLeod and Jesper Bratt while Palat skates with Dawson Mercer and Timo Meier.
That’s actually what the workflow looked like halfway through the Devils’ tilt against the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday after Lindy Ruff rearranged the deckchairs.
Elsewhere, further details on Jack Hughes’ injury were revealed and New Jersey’s general manager dives deeper into all of the Devils’ injuries.
Plus, a couple of firsts in Boston as they continue to defy the odds, San Jose’s general manager opens up about Sharks struggles and a lot more.
Let’s do that hockey.
