The Devils came back from down 3-1 and even took a third-period lead over the Lightning on Thursday night before a challenge took away what had looked to be the go-ahead goal. Tampa Bay claimed a 4-3 win in overtime. [Devils NHL]

This ... is not great:

On what Alex Holtz has shown so far this season: “Holtz knew that this season was a make-or-break year for him. So far, he has certainly made it in more ways than one. He’s finally showing the league what made him such a coveted player in his draft class and why he’s incredibly skilled.” [Infernal Access ($)]

And while we’re talking about steps forward, a look at Michael McLeod: “He’s been one of the Devils’ most valuable players because he’s taken such a step forward, specifically offensively. He’s not Hughes, but his play suggests the Devils could be able to get by in Hughes’ absence. And that’s a winning outcome for all parties involved.” [Devils on the Rush]

On the trade deadline outlook for the Devils: “They said goodbye to Damon Severson and Ryan Graves. Then lost Dougie Hamilton for the season with a torn pectoral muscle. And now Jonas Siegenthaler is out. No team can withstand that much trauma and compete for a Cup – no matter how well Luke Hughes and Simon Nemec have played. The question is: given all of that, how aggressive will New Jersey be? Or is this just not their year?” [Daily Faceoff]

The Oilers and Jets are rolling:

“The Chicago Blackhawks have asked a court to dismiss a negligence lawsuit filed by a former player who alleges he was sexually assaulted during the 2009-10 Stanley Cup season and playoffs by former team video coach Brad Aldrich, saying the player took too long to make his claim.” [TSN]

A rough stretch for the Ducks:

Elliotte Friedman: “Corey Perry, whose contract was terminated by the Chicago Blackhawks on Nov. 30, met Tuesday with NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman and is cleared to sign with a new team. Perry was not technically ineligible to play, but teams definitely would be wary of signing him unless the league gave its blessing.” [Sportsnet]

Gabriel Landeskog is back on the ice:
