The New Jersey Devils made slumping forward Mike Cammalleri a healthy scratch for the first time in his career on Saturday evening for their 3-2 win over the New York Islanders, and he was not exactly thrilled about it.
He will remain a healthy scratch on Sunday night for the second half of their home-and-home series with the Islanders, most likely because NHL coaches are hesitant to make any sort of change to a lineup after a win.
That means with the Devils winning on Saturday, Cammalleri remains in the press box on Sunday.
With 17 points in his first 18 games this season Cammalleri was off to a promising start for the Devils. But everything has been downhill for him ever since with no goals in his past 18 games, only one in his past 33.
He has 12 assists during that same stretch.
