The Devils outplayed the Flyers for a good chunk of Tuesday’s game, but it was Philadelphia that came away with a 3-2 win in overtime off a Jack Hughes turnover. [Devils NHL]

Some confirmation that Timo Meier is still not 100%:

Jack and Luke on NHL Network:

Pierre LeBrun on Dougie Hamilton’s injury timeline: “They don’t have a firm timeline, but my understanding is that he’s probably out until the playoffs, until perhaps late April or early May. The flip side to that is it means they have his $9-million cap hit to play with ahead of the March 8th trade deadline. And that’s the intention from the New Jersey Devils – is to likely be aggressive if they improve in the standings here. They’ve already been doing their due diligence on the ‘D market,’ but they could also potentially add a goalie. They could add a couple players that could help that roster with that $9 million.” [TSN] [The Athletic ($)]
