Flyers coach Craig Berube wouldn't reveal his starter during his pregame meeting with the media, but said the coaching staff had a set plan and was going to stick to it.
Emery, who totaled 29 minutes in penalties after leaving his crease to engage in a fight with Washington Capitals goalie Braden Holtby on Friday, is 0-2-0 with a 5.08 goals-against and .846 save percentage in three games this season.
Devils coach Pete Deboer confirmed following his team's optional skate that Zajac did not feel good enough to play.
"Travis is day-to-day and a decision has not been made on whether or not he will join the team in Minnesota [to face the Wild on Sunday]," DeBoer said.
Zajac appeared to sustain an ankle injury during practice Friday. According to reports, the veteran center tripped and fell during the early stages of practice and was replaced by Josefson.
Devils coach Peter DeBoer made the announcement during his pregame meeting with the media.
DeBoer said Schneider, who is dealing with a lower-body injury, will remain on injured reserve.
Schneider had declared himself ready to go following practice Saturday morning.
"I'm feeling good," Schneider said.
Schneider sustained his injury in a loss to the Vancouver Canucks on Oct. 24. There is no timetable on his return.
Gill, who signed a free-agent contract with the Flyers on Oct. 1, has two goals and 13 points in 52 games against the Devils.
Flyers coach Craig Berube said Gill would be paired with Andre Meszaros, who is making his second appearance in the past eight games. Scratched from the lineup are defensemen Luke Schenn and Erik Gustafsson.
"I just want to shake things up," Berube said.
NEWARK, N.J. -- Philadelphia Flyers forward Steve Downie is out indefinitely with a concussion, and forward Vincent Lecavalier is day-to-day with facial injuries sustained during a 7-0 loss to the Washington Capitals on Friday.
NEWARK, N.J. -- After accumulating the seventh-highest penalty-minute total in Philadelphia Flyers history in a home loss to the Washington Capitals less than 24 hours ago, the team got the morning off in preparation for the New Jersey Devils on Saturday at Prudential Center (7 p.m. ET).
The Flyers recalled forward Tye McGinn from their American Hockey League affiliate in Adirondack after it was learned forwards Steve Downie (concussion) and Vincent Lecavalier (facial injury) would not suit up against the Devils. It's possible the team might recall one other forward.
Downie and Lecavalier were injured during a fight-filled affair at Wells Fargo Center on Friday in which Philadelphia amassed 99 minutes in penalties, the most since a franchise record 231 against the Ottawa Senators on March 5, 2004.
Moncton Wildcats left wing Ivan Barbashev, the only "A"-rated prospect on NHL Central Scouting's preliminary list of the top 2014 NHL Draft-eligible players from the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, will return to the lineup Friday at the Saint John Sea Dogs after sitting out the previous five games with a lower-body injury.
Wildcats coach Darren Rumble said he intends to give Barbashev between 15 and 20 minutes of ice time in his anticipated return. The coach said the 6-foot-1, 185-pound left wing has looked good in practice the last few days.
"I'll ease him in, but I'm not a big believer in [easing a player in]," Rumble said. "If you're cleared to play, you're cleared to play. Now I'm not going to give him 30 minutes but I think he'll get a regular shift and power-play time, so we'll try and get him no more than 20 minutes; about to the 15-minute mark."
Barbashev was injured while taking a faceoff in a game against Saint John on Oct. 16 when he attempted to kick the puck but instead caught his skate in a rut. At the time of his injury Barbashev led the team in points (18) and was tied for the team lead in goals (seven) and assists (11). He's averaging 1.29 points per game.
NEWARK, N.J. -- New Jersey Devils goalie Martin Brodeur will start consecutive games for the first time this season when he steps between the pipes to face the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday at Prudential Center (7:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN, TSN2).
Brodeur, who earned his first win of the season on Saturday against the Boston Bruins at TD Garden, is 1-2-2 with a 3.32 goals-against average and .871 save percentage in five appearances. The 41-year-old is just hoping to establish some confidence and rhythm in goal as the Devils seek their first two-game winning streak of the season.
"The expectation on Marty is always pretty high," Devils coach Peter DeBoer said. "The bar is pretty high with him, but I'm not worried about Marty. I'm worried about building our team game."
Elias, who has two goals and four points in seven games for the Devils, had missed the past two matches with an illness. The 37-year-old Elias did some skating on his own on Wednesday and, at that time, coaches were hopeful that the veteran left wing would be back in the fold against the Canucks.
"I probably starting feeling a little better on Tuesday afternoon; that's when I was able to get out of the house," Elias said after Thursday's practice. "I had a light skate [on Wednesday] and felt good. I'm OK today."

Your team is going to want to recapture the feeling. What they're going to have to figure out is they're going to have to rewrite the story. Because you're going to rewrite the story doesn't mean you want a different end. It's just that you're going to have to learn that there's different challenges to get there, and if you're going to try and tap the same feeling, it ain't going to happen.
