Domingue will start Saturday in Nashville.
Domingue was yanked after he allowed five goals on 10 shots in the Devils loss in Buffalo on Monday. Since joining the Devils, Domingue has gone 1-2-0 with a 3.45 GAA and .870 SV%. Tonight he starts in Nashville, where the Predators have surprisingly lost seven of their last eight (1-4-3) while scoring 2.50 goals per game.
Mueller will draw into the Devils lineup on Friday.
Matt Tennyson landed on IR on Thursday, so Muller will play for the first time since November 22nd. Mueller has no points and a minus-7 rating in 14 games this season.
Hughes (lower-body) will return to the Devils lineup on Friday.
Hughes has missed the last three games with a lower-body injury but will play Friday vs the Blackhawks. Hughes has had a slow-start to his NHL career, posting just 11 points (4G / 7A) in 24 games.
Blackwood will start Friday vs. the Blackhawks.
Blackwood surrendered four goals on 30 shots in the Devils' loss to the Golden Knights on Tuesday. In his last six outings, Blackwood has gone 1-4-0 while posting a horrible 4.12 GAA and. 878 SV%. Tonight he takes on a Blackhawks team that played last night and come in having lost six of their last eight (2-5-1) while scoring 2.13 goals per game.
The Devils have placed Matt Tennyson (upper-body) on IR.
Tennyson was hurt early in Tuesday's game vs. the Golden Knights and his move to IR means that he will miss at least two games.
Hughes (lower-body) will not play on Tuesday.
Hughes did not travel to Buffalo for Monday's game and isn't ready to play Tuesday back in New Jersey. This is the third straight game that Hughes has missed but the Devils reiterated that he is day-to-day and could be back for their next game.

Blackwood will start Tuesday vs. the Golden Knights.
Blackwood allowed two goals on 17 shots after replacing Louis Domingue in last night's blowout loss in Buffalo. On the tail-end of a back-to-back, Blackwood will make his 18th start of the season. The 22-year-old has gone 3-4-3 with a 2.74 GAA and .895 SV% on home-ice this season so it'd be wise to avoid him with the Golden Knights in town.

Domingue will start Monday in Buffalo.
Domingue allowed three goals on 29 shots in the Devils loss in Minnesota last Tuesday. Mackenzie Blackwood started the last two games but Domingue will start the front-end of their back-to-back on Monday. Since coming up from the AHL, Domingue has gone 1-1-0 while allowing just four goals on 54 shots (.926 SV%). Tonight he takes on a Sabres team that had a solid weekend but are 2-4-2 in their last eight.
Hughes (lower-body) did not travel to Buffalo.
Hughes missed Saturday's game and will not play Monday in Buffalo and remains day-to-day with a lower-body issue. The Devils will host the Golden Knights tomorrow night, so it's entirely possible that Hughes returns to the lineup on home-ice.
Rooney (upper-body) will return to the Devils lineup on Saturday.
Rooney has missed the last seven games with an upper-body injury but will replace Jack Hughes (lower-body) in the lineup on Saturday. Rooney has just one assist in 13 games this season.
Hughes is day-to-day with a lower-body injury; will not play Saturday.
Hughes missed Friday's practice with a lower-body injury that he suffered while blocking a shot in Montreal. Luckily for the Devils, Kevin Rooney is ready to return from injury, replacing Hughes up-front. Hughes should be considered questionable heading into their Monday/Tuesday back-to-back.
Blackwood will start Saturday vs. the Rangers.
Blackwood allowed four goals on 48 shots in the Devils' win in Montreal on Thursday. Blackwood has allowed three-plus goals in four straight starts and is now 6-4-1 with a 3.04 GAA and .911 SV% in November. In his first start against the Rangers, Blackwood stopped 29 of 31 shots in a 5-2 win (Oct.17).
Blackwood will start in Montreal on Thursday.

The Devils have recalled Brett Seney from Binghamton (AHL).

Domingue will start Saturday vs. the Red Wings.
Blackwood will start Friday in Pittsburgh.
Blackwood surrendered five goals on 28 shots in the Devils loss to the Bruins on Tuesday. Blackwood has gone 5-3-1 with a 2.73 GAA and .012 SV% in nine starts this month. Tonight he faces the Penguins for the second time this season--he stopped 38 of 39 shots in a 2-1 win in their first meeting.
Schneider has cleared waivers and been assigned to Binghamton (AHL).
Schneider still has three years left on a contract that carries a $6.0M AAV cap-hit so it's not surprising that he cleared waivers. Schneider's game has completely fallen apart in recent years, as he's gone 6-27-7 with league worsts in GAA (3.55) and SV% (.885) in his last 44 appearances. Unless he goes to Binghamton and completely reinvents himself, this could be the last we see of Cory Schneider.
Blackwood will start Tuesday vs. the Bruins.
Blackwood gave up three goals on 34 shots in the Devils win in Montreal on Saturday. Blackwood has won three of his last four starts while posting a 2.00 GAA and .938 SV%. With Cory Schneider going on waivers and Louis Domingue coming up, Blackwood could have more competition for starts moving forward. He'll see a Bruins squad that has lost four of their last six on the road.
Vatanen (upper-body) will return to the Devils lineup on Tuesday.
Vatanen has missed the last three games with an upper-body injury but will play Tuesday vs. the Bruins. Vatanen, who has four goals and four assists in 15 games this season, is expected to be on the third pair and first power-play unit in his return.
