Coach Pete DeBoer said Salvador's injury is more than a day-to-day concern, suggesting the defenseman will be out for "a little longer," Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record reports.Salvador has missed the past six games with the lower-body injury, which was probably enough to consider the blueliner more than day-to-day before DeBoer said so outright. With just a week remaining in the season, it a return during the playoffs seems more realistic for Salvador, should the Devils nab a Wild Card spot.
