The Devils, who were beaten 5-1 in Washington on Saturday, will welcome back center Jacob Josefson, who was recalled from Albany of the American Hockey League earlier in the day. Ryan Carter was put on injured reserve retroactive to Feb. 18 to make room for Josefson, who was sent down to Albany a week ago after he managed only one assist and a minus-8 rating in 15 games.
"We've rolled four lines for most games here, at least early, so he's gotta make the most of his opportunity," DeBoer said of Josefson.
The Jets, who blew a two-goal lead and lost 5-3 in Philadelphia on Saturday, will have forwards Antti Miettinen and Anthony Peluso in the lineup. Miettinen will be making his season debut while Peluso will be playing in just his second game of the season.
