Tallinder to miss 6 to 8 weeks
The Devils blue line was dealt a blow Thursday when it was announced that Henrik Tallinder could miss up to two months.

"Henrik Tallinder has been diagnosed with acute thrombophlebitis of the lower left leg and will be out six to eight weeks,” President/CEO/GM Lou Lamoriello said in a release.

Tallinder did not play in the 4-1 loss to Boston, and his absence will pose a significant challenge. Among Devils' defensemen, he's second only to Adam Larsson in average ice time (21:18).

"That's unfortunate," said Martin Brodeur. "That's a big loss for us. He's a guy that plays a lot of minutes, and he's a big body in front of me and in front of the team. But it's unfortunate not just for the team, but for himself, also. He's an important player on our team."

Although Andy Greene (toe, 20 games missed) could be back in the next 7-10 days, the Devils will have a void to fill without Tallinder.

"Those are some big minutes to replace," Bryce Salvador said. "We got some good news that Greenie's back skating, then we got a big blow there, so that wasn't nice to see at all. But that's hockey. Unfortunately, injuries happen. No one likes when they happen."

Tallinder missed six games from Dec. 16-28 with back spasms.
