The Devils are seeking a split of their four-game road swing in today's trip finale (1-2-0). This is the club's third matinee of the season; John Hynes' squad is 2-0 in its previous two afternoon contests: Oct. 18 at NY Rangers (2-1 OT) and Oct. 31 vs. NY Islanders (3-2 SO).
2. This is the second and final meeting of the season between the two teams. The Devils notched a 3-2 overtime victory over the Coyotes at Prudential Center on Oct. 20 when Adam Larsson scored 43 seconds into the extra session.
3. John Moore returns to the lineup today after missing four games. The Devils went 1-3-0 without Moore, who's tied for second in scoring among New Jersey defensemen with 10 points (3g-7a).
4. Reid Boucher will play today after being recalled from Albany (AHL) on Friday. This will be Boucher's fourth NHL appearance of the season, first since Oct. 18 against the Rangers. He has 26 points (14g-12a) in 30 games for the A-Devils, which ranks third on the club.
Brian O'Neill, who was also recalled from Albany, will be scratched.
5. Adam Henrique (1a to reach 100 in NHL) and Lee Stempniak (1 pt. to reach 400 in NHL) remain on verge of new milestones.
6. Arizona has points in each of its last seven games (5-0-2) and is 9-2-4 since Dec. 11.
