News: Mike Cammalleri (neck) is unlikely to play in Thursday's game against the Jets, The Star-Ledger reports. Analysis: Mike Cammalleri did not take part in the Devils' morning skate, so it seems likely he will sit out again Thursday night. Cammalleri is reportedly dealing with only soreness and not a more serious injury, so it's possible he could return for the Devils' next game Saturday.

Analysis: Jayson Megna, who appeared in 36 games with the Penguins last season, recorded two goals and an assist in nine games with WBS during the current campaign.

News: Craig Anderson will start Thursday's game against the Blackhawks, TSN's Steve Lloyd reports. Analysis: Craig Anderson will face a familiar opponent, as he just faced the Blackhawks on Sunday.

News: Antti Raanta will travel with the Blackhawks' two other goalies, Scott Darling and Corey Crawford, for the upcoming road trip, Thursday in Ottawa and Saturday in Toronto, Chicago Tribune reports. Analysis: In a surprise Darling has started the last two game while Antti Raanta has been on the bench with Crawford still out with an upper-body injury. Raanta has looked pretty good in his three starts (1-2, 2.03 goals against average and .933 save percentage) this season, but the Blackhawks' management has also liked Darling. Both Darling and Raanta can be sent down to Rockford of the AHL without going through waivers. The Blackhawks were expected to name the starting goalie against Ottawa later on Thursday.
News: The Kings recalled David Van der Gulik from AHL Manchester on an emergency basis Thursday, LA Kings Insider reports. Analysis: The Kings played a man down in Tuesday's game, so they were allowed to bring up David Van der Gulik without having to send him through waivers when they remove him from the roster. Van der Gulik has two goals and 11 assists in 48 career NHL games.
News: Scott Darling will travel along with the other Blackhawks' two goalies, Corey Crawford and Antti Raanta, for the upcoming two-game road trip, Thursday in Ottawa and Saturday in Toronto, Chicago Tribune reports. Analysis: Scott Darling's performance in two games has caused a quandary for the Blackhawks on whether to send him or Raanta down to Rockford of the AHL. Both can be sent down to Rockford without going through waivers. Darling has given up only one goal in each of his two games with a save percentage of .966. Crawford has missed the last five games because of an upper-body injury and might return Thursday against the Senators. The Blackhawks are expected to announce the starter against Ottawa later on Thursday.
