Salvador to miss game vs. Hurricanes
Did not travel with team to Carolina
Salvador will be out of the lineup for the first time since a concussion forced him to miss all of the 2010-11 season. He played in all 82 games last season for the first time in his career.
Salvador leads the Devils in blocked shots (53) and averages a third-best 21:55 of ice time. New Jersey's blue line will also be without Henrik Tallinder (lower body), who was hurt in warm-ups on Thursday and did not make the trip to Carolina.
