Jussi Jokinen

I got a lot of postgame info last night. Most of it I used in Postgame Thoughts, yet some spilled over into today.

Here are some leftovers from the Devils' 3-2 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins.

For whatever reason, the arena seemed exceedingly quiet until Travis Zajac's second-period goal.

The Devils obviously will not be playing postseason hockey this year.

Yet, somehow they still managed to claim the season series from the Eastern Conference's top team.

New Jersey came from 2-0 down to send its home crowd out with a 3-2 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday night at Prudential Center.

The Carolina Hurricanes placed Jussi Jokinen on waivers Tuesday but the veteran forward passed through them unclaimed, according to ESPN's Pierre LeBrun. As for the reason why he went unclaimed? LeBrun has an answer, he thinks:


With the salary cap going down, it's hard to justify adding $3 million to next year's cap given Jokinen's greatly diminished production. My guess is he won't get moved at the deadline but will be bought out after the season.

The Carolina Hurricanes placed center Jussi Jokinen on waivers Tuesday. Could the Devils be interested?


While he certainly could help New Jersey, there's a couple of issues. For one, as Todd Cordell points out on Twitter, the Devils already have 50 contracts and would have to move someone in order to claim Jokinen. Two, the Devils are middle of the pack points wise, which means they'll be middle of the pack in terms of claim order and I imagine a team far more desperate than the Devils will put in a claim on Jokinen.
