Devils Daily: Jonas Siegenthaler’s Return, Playoff Race Update

Published

on

New Jersey Devils

After an incredible weekend, the New Jersey Devils came back to reality on Monday. The Devils hit the ice at RWJBarnabas Arena for the first practice following the Stadium Series. Jonas Siegenthaler joined the blue line in regular rushes. It looks like he could return tonight against the Washington Capitals. Nolan Foote was also a regular participant in a regular contact practice jersey, although skated as an extra.

At this point, the Devils have mostly returned to full health with the exception of Dougie Hamilton. They know it, the head coach knows it, and they’re in the midst of making a push for the playoffs. The Detroit Red Wings didn’t help last night collecting two points. However, the Tampa Bay Lightning lost in regulation which is huge considering the Devils have three games in hand on them. The Devils’ final 28 games of the season are all shaping up to be crucial.

Anyway, in the links, Brendan Smith divulges he was hoping to drop the mitts at MetLife Stadium, and Luke Hughes top speed among all defensemen.

Elsewhere, the downfall in Pittsburgh is rapid, Steve Yzerman’s predicament ahead of the trade deadline, and could another team retire Jaromir Jagr’s No.68?

Let’s do that hockey.

SI.com: The Minnesota Wild and Vancouver Canucks combine for an NHL-record 17 goals in the Wild victory.

Pittsburgh Hockey Now: This is certainly good news for Devils fans. The Pittsburgh Penguins are out of runway with 30 games to go and the playoff chase is slipping away at an alarming speed.

Boston Hockey Now: Not even 24 hours after he signed his first NHL contract, Boston Bruins rookie forward Justin Brazeau scored his first NHL goal in his first NHL game on Monday afternoon.

Florida Hockey Now: After the Penguins retired Jaromir Jagr‘s No.68, it got Florida Hockey Now thinking. The Florida Panthers should send No.68 to the rafters in the Sunshine State as well.

Detroit Hockey Now: Just how important has team chemistry been to the Detroit Red Wings‘ recent success? It could be important enough that GM Steve Yzerman doesn’t tinker with Detroit’s roster. (+)
