EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -Center John Madden and defenseman Colin White missed the New Jersey Devils' game Wednesday night against the Montreal Canadiens with injuries.
Madden was hit under the right eye with a shot Sunday against Tampa Bay and required stitches. His face and eye remain swollen.
White has an upper body injury, coach Claude Julien said before the game, adding that he hopes to have both players back Friday when the Pittsburgh Penguins visit New Jersey.
The Devils recalled defenseman Mark Fraser from Lowell of the AHL under emergency conditions to take White's place in the lineup.
