Devils' Wayne Simmonds: No longer playing Monday

Simmonds was taking line rushes in practice, so the Devils may simply be exercising caution with their veteran winger. There's no reason to push Simmonds too early, as he'll add a valuable power-play upside and a physical presence in the bottom six when the regular season begins.
