WE BACK! The Devils, after two weeks on ice, returned to game action on Tuesday night and claimed an impressive 5-2 win over the Rangers at Madison Square Garden. [NHL] [All About the Jersey] [] []

A solid reset on the Devils roster/season situation here, including an indication from Lindy Ruff about how he plans to handle the roster: “I believe there’s opportunities to put fresh bodies in. I think there’s players that don’t want to sit out, but I think based on energy level from different games, I don’t believe I’m going to hesitate to use some of the players that are going to be available.” [The Athletic ($)]

Our best wishes to Steve Cangialosi:

Some changes to the team’s hockey ops staff: Scott Clemmensen is now the head of the Devils goaltending department, Kate Madigan has been named executive director of hockey management/operations and Jim Mill will oversee the Devils pro scouting staff. [NHL]

Some COVID-19-prompted changes to the Devils schedule: [NHL]

An in-depth look inside the Arizona Coyotes that paints a picture of a ... chaotic, dysfunctional organization: [The Athletic ($)]

A look around the league at where we stand COVID-19-wise. How are things going right now compared to expectations? NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly: “Would I have hoped for less cases and fewer outbreaks among clubs? The answer to that is yes. Whether I can say it was a surprise to me, I’m not sure it necessarily is.” [ESPN]
