Palmieri returns to lineup vs. Ducks


 
Right wing Nick Palmieri will make his first NHL appearance since Jan. 14 when the Devils host Anaheim tonight.

The 22-year-old has four goals and three assists for seven points in 26 games with New Jersey this season.

Boulton returns to the lineup after being scratched for Stephane Veilleux on Tuesday.
