But it’s not likely that he’ll be ready to play Saturday when the Devils visit the Island.
“That’s not really in the plans right now,” said the 6-5 center, who was set to miss his 29th game on Friday. He has been sidelined with a leg injury since blocking a shot at Nashville on Nov. 19.
“I think we set kind of small targets. We’ll see how I feel two, three days from now and go from there,” he said.
Zubrus indicated he’s feeling some soreness and stiffness, adding: “That’s expected.”
“Every day is getting better and I’m doing treatment still and that’s not going to stop. But it’s one day closer to you seeing me out there running around.”
