Pandolfo back with Devils after missing time with ab injury
The winger hadn't played since Nov. 28 against Dallas. He left that game in the third period after falling hard into the boards. Pandolfo sat out two days later, when New Jersey faced Montreal, ending his consecutive games streak at 307 -- the third-longest stretch in team history.
In 24 games this season, the 33-year-old Winchester, Mass., native -- a New England Patriots fan playing in New York Giants territory -- had eight goals and five assists. This was the longest stretch of inactivity in his 11 NHL seasons, all with the Devils.
