Player Notes

Cory Schneider made his fifth consecutive start in goal (26 saves) and has won four straight games for the first time as a Devil.

Adam Henrique scored twice and added an assist for his third career 3pt. game. Henrique's first goal came at 19:10 of the first period and tied the game at 1-1. He then recorded his tenth career SHG, an unassisted goal at 9:15 of the third period which stood as the eventual game-winner. Henrique leads the Devils with 6g overall; he scored 16g in 75 games last season.

Henrique also recorded the primary assist on David Schlemko's tally. He now has three multiple-point outings in the last four games (4g-3a-7pts) & has 5g-3a-8pts over his last five.

Henrique's 10 SHG since 2011-12 rank third (tie, Cal Clutterbuck) in the NHL during that span, trailing only Brad Marchand and Brandon Sutter (11 each). He also moved into a tie for fifth in Devils' history with Jamie Langenbrunner, Brian Rolston and John MacLean.

Mike Cammalleri posted (1g-2a-3pts) for his second consecutive 3pt. game. It's the fourth time in his career that Cammalleri has recorded back-to-back 3pt. efforts (last time, March, 21-22, 3g-3a-6pts). He extended his point-scoring streak to a season-high four straight games (2g-6a-8pts) and leads the Devils with 3g-8a-11pts overall.

Schlemko scored his first goal as a Devil/since Nov. 22, 2014 at San Jose, a span of 42 games. Schlemko has scored just 1g in each of his last four NHL seasons.

Lee Stempniak extended his point-scoring streak to four games (2g-3a-5pts) with an assist on Henrique's first goal.

Sergey Kalinin collected the first point of his NHL career with the lone assist on Cammalleri's goal.

Jordin Tootoo registered a team-high five shots on goal, his highest single-game total since Feb. 20 vs. Vancouver.

John Moore was on the ice for a season-high 24:36 (previous high, 22:57, Oct. 22 at Ottawa) which trailed only Andy Greene's 25:21 of TOI tonight.

Adam Larsson appeared in his 200th NHL game.

Jon Merrill was a healthy scratch.

Tuomo Ruutu (lower body/maintenance) missed his fourth straight game.
