Kovalchuk scratched with groin injury
New Jersey Devils forward Ilya Kovalchuk participated in the pre-game skate Tuesday night, but was ultimately scratched for his club's game against the Boston Bruins due to a groin injury.

Devils coach Peter DeBoer informed reporters after the morning's skate that he wanted to hold Kovalchuk out for one more game, but said Kovalchuk would be a game-time decision. New Jersey visits Buffalo on Wednesday night.

Kovalchuk, 28, has 2 goals and 7 assists in nine games for the Devils this season. He last played on Nov. 3 at Philadelphia.
Quote of the Day

This team has been a real treat to say you've been the head coach of them. I'm extremely proud of this group ... after the disappointment of (the Game 6 loss) is digested, it's always a lot easier as a coach when your team has emptied its tank, and that team emptied its tank for me for three months.

— Senators coach Dave Cameron after getting eliminated in the first round by the Canadiens
