Devils scratch Jagr, Elias for preseason opener
Patrik Elias and Jaromir Jagr reportedly will not play in Monday's preseason opener against the New York Rangers at Prudential Center.

Patrik Elias and Jaromir Jagr reportedly will not play in Monday's preseason opener for the New Jersey Devils against the New York Rangers at Prudential Center (7 p.m. ET) in Newark, N.J.

Elias is a healthy scratch and Jagr, who was forced to exit the opening day of training camp on Sept. 12 after experiencing "general soreness," will not play until he is feels 100 percent. Both players were not available at the team's morning skate on Monday in Newark.

Quote of the Day

I feel that responsibility, I've felt it for the last two years. We core guys get a lot of minutes, we get a lot of opportunity out there. Our teammates, the organization and fans look to us to be the guys to put the puck in the net and to create momentum out there.
