With the preseason in full swing, the Devils host the Rangers tonight at Prudential Center. Here are three things you need to know:

1) The training camp roster has been significantly reduced today. All junior eligible players except Pavel Zacha and Blake Speers have been returned to their club teams. The only first year pros still in the mix are Steven Santini, Miles Wood and Nick Lappin. You can find the complete roster below. 

2) Taylor Hall will make his Prudential Center debut tonight on the top line with Adam Henrique and Beau Bennett. Anyone in attendance or watching live on MSG+2, should see a lot of speed and creativity on display. 

3) Kyle Palmieri and Cory Schneider will make their preseason debuts tonight. Cory will start the game and is expected to play the entire game. He said yesterday that he'd like to get in at least two full games before the puck drops on the regular season.
