Devils forward Alexei Ponikarovsky was a late scratch for the Devils game against the Capitals Friday.

The 31-year-old winger, acquired in a trade with Carolina in January, will not play because of a right leg injury, according to the Newark Star-Ledger and The Bergen Record. Ponikarovsky sustained the injury in the team's 4-3 overtime loss to Boston Friday.

With Ponikarovsky out, the Devils dressed seven defensemen in Washington. Cam Janssen was a healthy scratch.
