Palmieri picked up two assists, one on the power play, in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Capitals.
The veteran winger continues to put his sluggish start to the season behind him.

Palmieri usually contributes on the other special teams unit, with 59 career power-play goals, but he scored his second career shorthanded goal for his second marker of the second period to hand New Jersey a 2-0 lead. Now that he has seen the puck cross the goal line, expect Palmieri to start marking the scoresheet with greater regularity.

This could be a nice buy-low opportunity considering Palmieri has scored at least 24 goals in each of the previous five seasons.

Now that he's on IR, Palmieri will have to wait for New Jersey's Jan. 27 matchup with Ottawa for his next opportunity to rejoin the lineup. Once healthy, the 28-year-old American will return to a top-six role and a spot on the Devils' top power-play unit.
According to coach Alain Nasreddine, there's a "slight chance" Palmieri (foot) will join the Devils at some point during the team's four-game road trip, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.
Jesper Bratt has already been chosen to replace Palmieri in the All-Star game, which will take place on Jan. 25, so it's safe to assume the 28-year-old winger will miss New Jersey's next three games at a minimum. There's a slight chance that he'll link up with the Devils ahead of their Jan. 27 matchup with Ottawa, but that's looking like a longshot at this point. It wouldn't be surprising to see Palmieri surface on injured reserve in the coming days.
Palmieri (lower body) won't be in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Lightning, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

In his stead, Jesper Bratt is expected to get moved up to the top line Sunday.

Palmieri now has six goals and 10 points over the last 11 games, and he's already halfway to the second 30-goal campaign of his career.
