The Devils will again skate without Anton Volchenkov when they travel to Montreal to face the Canadiens Thursday night. Lou Lamoriello says the team’s second-biggest free-agent acquisition remains “status quo” after seeing a doctor about his sore neck, according to Tom Gulitti.
The injury has lingered since Volchenkov was hit in the face by a shot in the Devils’ game against the Washington Capitals.
