* Preview:

Florida will be without center Vincent Trocheck for the rest of the regular season, coach Gerard Gallant told the Miami Herald, which reported Trocheck has a non-displaced fracture in his ankle after blocking a shot by Toronto Maple Leafs forward P.A. Parenteau in a 5-2 loss Tuesday. Nick Bjugstad slots into Trocheck's spot with Rocco Grimaldi expected to be recalled from Portland of the American Hockey League to center the third line. (More) Preview:

New Jersey could have Cory Schneider, who had been with AHL Albany for conditioning after suffering an MCL sprain on March 4. He's back with the team but has posted a 3.45 goals-against average and .869 save percentage over a 1-7-0 span. (More)
