  • Lamoriello: Matteau had an 'outstanding game'
    Devils GM and interim coach Lou Lamoriello loved Stefan Matteau's game on Sunday.

    Advice: It wasn't that significant from a statistical perspective as Matteau had a minus-one rating, two shots on goal, and five hits in 14:27 minutes of ice time. However, Lamoriello thought it was an "outstanding game" for the 21-year-old rookie. "I thought he had one of his best games since he's been here," Lamoriello said. "I don't think we could have asked for more than what he gave tonight. He used his size. He used his hockey smarts. He fit very well on that line. He didn't look out of place." Matteau was playing alongside Mike Cammalleri and Travis Zajac.

  • Elias running out of chances to make playoffs
    With the New Jersey Devils mathematically eliminated, Patrik Elias realizes he's running out of chances to make the playoffs.

    Advice: Elias is a two-time Stanley Cup winner, but with the Devils he has missed the playoffs in four of the last five campaigns. He will turn 39 on April 13. "I think no matter when, you want to be in the playoffs in your career, but especially towards the end you want to have the chance, no question about it," Elias said. "You want to have that last run and enjoy it like we did against L.A. that year (2012). It was a little bit unexpected, but we loved it. A lot of guys it was their first time and everybody soaked it in and that's what you miss."

    Dustin Brown is in a goal scoring slump as he has not scored since February 18.

    Advice: That's a span of 18 games and he has only two assists in that time frame as well. Once, one of the best power forwards in the NHL, Brown has only 10 goals and 26 points this season and should not be on your fantasy radar at this time.
