It was a bad weekend for the tank. It was a good weekend for Cory Schneider. He got his first win since December 2017 as the Devils came back to beat the Wild, 5-4, in overtime on Friday. [All About The Jersey] [NorthJersey.com] [NJ.com]
Then on Sunday, Cory got another win, this one as a starter, as Kyle Palmieri’s three-point night helped to power the Devils to a 4-1 win over the Sabres. [All About The Jersey] [NorthJersey.com] [NJ.com]

FWIW – Ray Shero tracker:
Will Marcus Johansson move soon?
Interest has picked up last few days on Johansson. And judging by Ray Shero’s history, he’s not a guy that likes to wait until deadline day. Dealt Boyle already. https://t.co/nkvuWhjb8v— Pierre LeBrun (@PierreVLeBrun) February 16, 2019

Looks like Matt Duchene will be leaving Ottawa:
Unless there’s last minute change, the Ottawa Senators plan on trading Matt Duchene. Mark Stone’s future in Ottawa should also be determined early this week, well in advance of the trade deadline.— Darren Dreger (@DarrenDreger) February 17, 2019
