The Devils are 4-5-0 in their last nine road games and John Hynes is considering several lineup changes. Hynes said defenseman David Schlemko and center Jacob Josefson are both healthy and could play, but noted both players would be a game time decision.

New Jersey is also 1-4 in its last five games playing on one day of rest, is 1-7 in its lat eight games when its opponent scores two goals or less in its previous game, and 2-6 in its last eight games versus Atlantic opponents.
