Nico Hischier did not play in the third period and was also not seen on the Devils' bench. Lindy Ruff, head coach of the Devils, told the media after the game that Hischier is dealing with an upper-body injury.

The captain of the NHL team will be reevaluated today and it remains to be seen when he will hit the ice again. Hischier has appeared in four games for the Devils this season but has yet to put his name on the scoresheet.
