- After a lengthy battle with figuring out his visa, Pavel Zacha has at long last rejoined the Devils. However, he won’t be part of tonight’s roster.
- Cassidy is expecting to make sweeping cuts after tonight’s game, but at least a couple of wingers are expected to stick around as insurance barring any major complications.
- Patrice Bergeron’s debut is set for Saturday, barring complications. Let’s all go to church on Friday to ensure that doesn’t happen, okay?
- David Krejci appears to be okay, but the B’s aren’t going to push it, so he’s not playing. Group B has had Par Lindholm centering Kuhlman and DeBrusk in his absence.
- The Devils have slashed their roster by 16. The roster they have now is roughly the one that will hit NHL ice come October 3rd.
We’re just a few more sleeps away from the season starting in earnest! Let’s make this last gasp for the bubble players a big win!
