1 Zacha's Back

A healthy scratch in four of the past five games, Pavel Zacha will return to the Devils lineup tonight.

The 6th overall pick in the 2015 draft skated on the second line with Jesper Bratt and Travis Zajac in practice Sunday.

2 Breakout Spot?

With Zacha returning to the lineup, Adam Henrique will now center a line with Blake Coleman and Brian Gibbons.

Henrique has struggled of late with just two points in his past 10 games, but signs are he may get going tonight. Why? Well, in eight career games against Minnesota, he has eight points (four goals, four assists).

3 Butcher's First

Will Butcher nets his first NHL goal of his career after tapping home the loose puck over the goal line during the third period of the Devils-Jets game.

The lone bright spot in Saturday’s loss was that rookie Will Butcher notched his first career NHL goal.

Butcher also had an assist for his fourth multi-point game of the season and now leads all rookies in assists with 14.

4 The Gift That Keeps Gibbing

Brian Gibbons scored again Saturday, raising his season total to a team-high nine.

Gibbons, who prior to this season hadn’t played in an NHL game since 2015, continues to be a pleasant surprise for New Jersey.
