Jacob Josefson will be back in the lineup tonight for the first time since Oct. 21 and will center Ryan Carter and Mattias Tedenby.
Josefson has missed 36 games since breaking his clavicle against San Jose on Oct. 21. He was recalled after a two-game tune-up in Albany, where he scored a goal in yesterday's 5-3 win over Adirondack.
Adam Henrique (groin) did not take part in the morning skate and will miss his second straight game.
Brad Mills was also recalled from Albany (AHL) and will play on the fourth line. Martin Brodeur gets the start as the Devils face Winnipeg to open a six-game homestand.
Devils' projected lines:
Sykora - Elias - Clarkson
Parise - Zubrus - Kovalchuk
Carter - Josefson - Tedenby
Boulton - Zalewski - Mills
Tallinder - Fayne
Salvador - Larsson
Volchenkov - Foster
