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

It was a different game in the past, that's for sure. It's not exactly what I was expecting but I think the experience paid off for a lot of our guys that realized what it takes in a Game 7. Realistically the effort we put forward, we might not even had to put 60 [minutes], but we just couldn't get a couple bounces to go our way and we just kept pushing.
