Devils center Dainius Zubrus plans to play in tonight's game against the Penguins at Mellon Arena despite battling the stomach flu.
"I should be OK," he said. "I was just sick last night and this morning."
Zubrus said he hadn't eaten much today, so he will have to be careful to stay hyrdated tonight.
He said he did not consider sitting out tonight's game
"I was pretty sure I was going to go," he said.
Devils defenseman Paul Martin was happy to see that former teammate David Hale finally scored his first NHL on Wednesday night in Phoenix's 3-1 win over Columbus. Hale and Martin roomed together when they were rookies with the Devils in 2003-04 and still stay in touch.
Hale scored in his 231st NHL game, which was a league record for most games before scoring a goal.
"I usually don't check the box scores, but (Thursday) I did and I happened to see it," Martin said. "I called him up to ask him if it was a misprint."
