Cammalleri (illness) will play Friday against the Oilers, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports. Cammalleri was dealing with just a stomach bug, but it will not force him to miss a contest. The winger has been a bright spot for the Devils so far this season, accumulating 18 points in 18 games including four in the last two contests. He'll look to add more to that total Friday against an Oilers team that has allowed the third-most goals per game this season (3.26).
Cammalleri (illness) didn't practice Thursday. The Devils are scheduled to take on the Oilers on Friday, so it's a bit concerning that Cammalleri was unable to practice Thursday. The veteran winger's level of participation in morning skate will be a telling indication of his availability for Friday evening's tilt against Edmonton.
Cammalleri had a goal and two assists in Saturday's 4-0 shutout win over the Penguins. Someone lit a fire under under this speedy little center and he has delivered 17 points (six goals, 11 assists) in as many games this season. He hasn't delivered a point-per-game since 2008-09 with Calgary, but Cammy sure looks at home in a Devils' uni. Enjoy the ride.
Cammalleri scored and then set up the game-winning goal in overtime in Sunday's win over the Canucks. Cammalleri got off to a hot start, scoring three goals and dishing out eight helpers in the first eight games, but was then held off the scoresheet in the next four contests. The 33-year-old seems to have found his stroke once again and has gotten over his brief cold spell, as he's collected three points (two goals) in the past two tilts with a plus-2 rating in that span.
Cammalleri had three assists Thursday to spark a rally past the Senators to win 5-4 in a shootout. The Devils have now won three in a row -- all in overtime -- and Cammalleri is starting to heat up. He has a goal and four assists on a three-game point streak that he'll look to extend Saturday in Buffalo.
