  • Devils' Tomas Tatar: Goal and assist in win

    Tatar logged a goal and an assist in Monday's 5-3 victory over the Rangers.

    Tatar got the Devils on the board in the first period, ripping a backhander past Igor Shesterkin, to cut the Devils' deficit to 2-1. He'd pick up a second point with an assist on Yegor Sharangovich's empty-net goal late in the third. The 31-year-old winger has scored three goals in his last five outings. Tatar now has six goals and nine assists in 23 games this season.

  • Devils' Tomas Tatar: Seven-game scoring streak

    Tatar scored a goal and added an assist in a 4-2 win over Arizona on Saturday.

    He roofed a shot high over Karel Vejmelka from in tight on a quick feed from Fabian Zetterlund to put the Devils up 1-0 early in the first period. Tatar later set up Jack Hughes for the Devils' second goal at 9:27. Tatar is on a seven-game, nine-point streak (two goals, seven assists).

  • Devils' Tomas Tatar: Records two assists Tuesday

    Tatar registered two assists in a 3-2 win against Calgary on Tuesday.

    Tatar has a goal and eight points in 13 games this season. That's despite being held off the scoresheet in his first five contests of 2022-23. He was somewhat streaky last season with some long cold spells before ultimately finishing with 15 goals and 30 points in 76 contests. It wouldn't be surprising if he performs similarly this season, especially given that he's averaging less than 15 minutes per game.

  • Devils' Tomas Tatar: Generates assist

    Tatar posted an assist and two PIM in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win over the Flames.

    Tatar set up Fabian Zetterlund's go-ahead goal in the first period. After starting the year with no points in five games, Tatar has earned a goal and five assists in his last seven outings, including one helper in each of the last four contests. The winger has added 27 shots on net, 13 hits, 11 blocked shots, 12 PIM and a plus-5 rating in 12 appearances while maintaining top-six minutes.

  • Devils' Tomas Tatar: Turns hustle into helper

    Tatar earned an assist during the 6-2 victory over the Red Wings on Tuesday.

    Tatar used his speed and determination to get back at the team that made him a second-round draft pick in 2009. Tatar hustled into the Red Wings' zone Tuesday, outbattled goalie Alex Nedeljkovic for the puck, and passed to an open Nico Hischier. Tatar's third-period marker restored the Devils' three-goal cushion. Tatar, who was held off the scoresheet during the Devils' opening five games, now has a goal and a helper in back-to-back outings. The third-line right winger is stepping up with the Devils playing with just 11 forwards.

  • Devils' Tomas Tatar: Substantial drop-off since 2019-20

    Tatar totaled four shots and a blocked shot in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Islanders.

    Tatar has yet to mark the scoresheet through four games while skating on the third line and No. 2 power-play unit. He had 61 points in 68 games for the Canadiens in 2019-20, but the veteran winger has only 60 points in 130 games since.

  • Devils' Tomas Tatar: Joins practice

    Tatar (illness) was on the ice Thursday to begin training camp, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

    Tatar missed time with an illness at the end of last season, but he's fully healthy now. The 31-year-old winger will likely see a middle-six role in 2022-23, though his production has declined sharply over the last two years and he may see a reduced role on the power play entering the campaign.

  • Devils' Tomas Tatar: Missing final game of season

    Tatar (illness) won't be in the lineup for Friday's regular-season finale versus Detroit.

    Tatar will finish the season having tallied 15 goals and 30 points while posting an ugly minus-22 rating through 76 contests. The 31-year-old winger will likely produce similar, if not marginally better numbers while skating in a middle-six role with the Devils in 2022-23.

  • Devils' Tomas Tatar: Not playing Thursday

    Tatar (illness) won't be ready to play against Carolina on Thursday, Catherine Bogart of the Devils' official site reports.

    Tatar was struggling even before falling ill, as he is mired in a six-game pointless streak dating back to April 12 versus the Coyotes. At this point, with a back-to-back to end the year, Tatar should probably be considered doubtful, at best, to suit up versus Detroit on Friday, though he hasn't been officially ruled out.

  • Devils' Tomas Tatar: Out Tuesday

    Tatar (undisclosed) is not in Tuesday's lineup against Ottawa, per the NHL's media site.

    It's unclear if Tatar is injured or if he's getting a night off as the season nears a close. The veteran winger hasn't missed a game since Jan. 2 and has racked up 30 points through 76 appearances on the year. His next chance to suit up will be Thursday against Carolina.

  • Devils' Tomas Tatar: Pots go-ahead goal

    Tatar scored a goal on two shots, logged two hits and added two PIM in Tuesday's 6-2 win over the Coyotes.

    Tatar restored the Devils' lead with his tally at 19:14 of the second period, just 38 seconds after Nick Schmaltz had tied the game. It's been a good run lately for Tatar, who has three goals and an assist in his last five outings. The streaky winger is up to 15 tallies, 30 points, 128 shots, 69 hits, 20 PIM and a minus-16 rating in 70 appearances.

  • Devils' Tomas Tatar: Pockets helper in loss

    Tatar notched an assist and went plus-2 in Wednesday's 6-3 loss to the Flames.

    Tatar set up Dawson Mercer on the Devils' first goal of the game. The 31-year-old Tatar has started to show a little more consistency with eight points in his last 15 outings. The winger is up to 25 points (five on the power play), 102 shots on net, 53 hits and a minus-10 rating through 58 appearances while moving all around the lineup this season.

  • Devils' Tomas Tatar: Rare goal helps delivers win

    Tatar scored in regulation and in the shootout in a 2-1 win over the Ducks on Saturday.

    He took a pass from Jesper Boqvist at the right face-off circle and skated into the slot before wiring it past Anthony Stolarz at the 2:39 mark of the second period. Tatar has not been able to reclaim the glory of his 61 points in 68 games from two seasons ago, and is sitting with just 11 goals and 24 points in 56 games.

  • Devils' Tomas Tatar: Milestone goal kicks off comeback

    Tatar notched his 400th career point with a goal in Tuesday's 5-3 win over Colorado.

    Tatar directed a rebound into a yawning cage for his 400th career point in the second period. It seemed like an unimportant goal at the time, cutting Colorado's lead to 3-1, but Tatar's tally ignited the Devils, who added four more in a row to complete an improbable comeback. The 31-year-old winger has 10 goals and 23 points in 54 games this season.

  • Devils' Tomas Tatar: Snags helper in win

    Tatar produced an assist and went plus-2 in Monday's 7-2 win over the Canucks.

    Tatar had the secondary helper on Dougie Hamilton's insurance goal in the third period. The 31-year-old Tatar closed February with a goal and four assists in nine outings -- that's an improvement after a brutal slump from January. He's at 22 points, 86 shots on net, 45 hits and a minus-11 rating in 50 contests overall.

  • Devils' Tomas Tatar: Manages helper in loss

    Tatar posted an assist, two shots on goal and two hits in Sunday's 4-2 loss to the Penguins.

    Tatar helped out on a Nico Hischier goal in the third period. While he has a goal and an assist in his last three games, Tatar was ice-cold with an 11-game point drought before his recent return to the scoresheet. The 31-year-old winger can be streaky at times -- he's at 19 points, 78 shots on net, 43 hits and a minus-11 rating through 45 appearances. He's played in a middle-six role for much of the season.

  • Devils' Tomas Tatar: Point drought reaches double digits

    Tatar totaled one shot, two hits and a minus-2 rating Tuesday's 7-1 loss to Toronto.

    Tatar was far from the only New Jersey player who saw his rating take a hit in this one, as 14 of the team's 18 skaters finished the night at minus-2 or worse. The 31-year-old winger sports an unsightly minus-12 mark in that category, including a minus-10 rating during Tatar's active 10-game point drought. Perhaps the All-Star break will allow Tatar to reset and rediscover the form that helped him rack up 17 points in 32 games prior to this disastrous drought.
