  • Devils' Tomas Tatar: Bulges twine Saturday

    Tatar scored a power-play goal and added two PIM in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Kings.

    The teams exchanged power-play tallies in the first period, with Tatar answered a goal from Kevin Fiala. Tatar entered Saturday on an eight-game goal drought, though he produced seven helpers in that span. The 32-year-old winger has picked up both of his power-play points this season in the last two contests. He's at 10 tallies, 27 points, 84 shots on net, 18 PIM and a plus-26 raring through 43 outings.

  • Devils' Tomas Tatar: Picks up power-play helper Friday

    Tatar logged a power-play assist and two shots on goal in Friday's 6-2 win over the Ducks.

    Tatar continues to enjoy a strong run of offense with two goals and eight helpers over his last 10 contests. He helped out on Jack Hughes' first-period marker, which stood as the game-winner and also accounted for Tatar's first power-play point of the season. Tatar is up to nine tallies, 17 helpers, 83 shots on net, 37 hits, 16 PIM and a plus-25 rating through 42 contests. He was limited to 30 points in each of the last two campaigns, but he's on pace to do significantly better this season.

  • Devils' Tomas Tatar: Set to play Wednesday

    Tatar (undisclosed) is slated to play Wednesday versus Detroit, per Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site.

    Tatar was a game-time decision after skipping Tuesday's skate for maintenance reasons. He has nine goals and 22 points in 37 contests in 2022-23. He's contributed two goals and six points in his last five games.

  • Devils' Tomas Tatar: Game-time call against Wings

    Tatar will be a game-time decision with an undisclosed injury against Detroit on Wednesday, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

    Coach Lindy Ruff has previously said both Tatar and Nico Hischier (undisclosed) were "available for tomorrow" after taking maintenance days Tuesday, so it's not clear if something has changed. Regardless, it seems likely that Tatar will be able to face the Red Wings, though he is officially a game-time decision. If he were to miss out, Miles Wood could be a candidate to step into a first-line role, especially if Hischier also is sidelined.

  • Devils' Tomas Tatar: Adds two assists in loss

    Tatar logged a pair of assists in Sunday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Hurricanes.

    Tatar set up Jesper Bratt's tally in the third period before adding a second helper on a Nico Hischier goal later in the frame. The 32-year-old Tatar now has six points (two goals, four assists) in his last five contests. He's up to nine goals and 13 assists through 37 games this season.

  • Devils' Tomas Tatar: Two points in loss

    Tatar scored a goal and added an assist in a 4-3 loss to the Bruins on Friday.

    Tatar scored on a rebound from the bottom of the left face-off circle at 11:01 of the third period. He has a goal in each of his last two games (two goal, one assist). Tatar has 19 points (nine goals, 10 assists) in 34 games this season, but will see his first-line gig end when Ondrej Palat (groin) returns early in 2023.

  • Devils' Tomas Tatar: Nets third-period tally

    Tatar scored a goal during a 6-4 loss to the visiting Islanders on Friday.

    Tatar, who snapped a three-game pointless skid, cut the Islanders' lead to 6-3 at 2:30 of the third period. The 32-year-old left winger generated a team-high five shots on goal and added two hits. Tatar's role on the top line with Nico Hischier and Jesper Bratt has done wonders for his rating; he sits at plus-19 in 27 games after posting a career-worst minus-22 mark last season.

  • Devils' Tomas Tatar: Goal and assist in win

    Tatar logged a goal and an assist in Monday's 5-3 victory over the Rangers.

    Tatar got the Devils on the board in the first period, ripping a backhander past Igor Shesterkin, to cut the Devils' deficit to 2-1. He'd pick up a second point with an assist on Yegor Sharangovich's empty-net goal late in the third. The 31-year-old winger has scored three goals in his last five outings. Tatar now has six goals and nine assists in 23 games this season.

  • Devils' Tomas Tatar: Seven-game scoring streak

    Tatar scored a goal and added an assist in a 4-2 win over Arizona on Saturday.

    He roofed a shot high over Karel Vejmelka from in tight on a quick feed from Fabian Zetterlund to put the Devils up 1-0 early in the first period. Tatar later set up Jack Hughes for the Devils' second goal at 9:27. Tatar is on a seven-game, nine-point streak (two goals, seven assists).

  • Devils' Tomas Tatar: Records two assists Tuesday

    Tatar registered two assists in a 3-2 win against Calgary on Tuesday.

    Tatar has a goal and eight points in 13 games this season. That's despite being held off the scoresheet in his first five contests of 2022-23. He was somewhat streaky last season with some long cold spells before ultimately finishing with 15 goals and 30 points in 76 contests. It wouldn't be surprising if he performs similarly this season, especially given that he's averaging less than 15 minutes per game.

  • Devils' Tomas Tatar: Generates assist

    Tatar posted an assist and two PIM in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win over the Flames.

    Tatar set up Fabian Zetterlund's go-ahead goal in the first period. After starting the year with no points in five games, Tatar has earned a goal and five assists in his last seven outings, including one helper in each of the last four contests. The winger has added 27 shots on net, 13 hits, 11 blocked shots, 12 PIM and a plus-5 rating in 12 appearances while maintaining top-six minutes.

  • Devils' Tomas Tatar: Turns hustle into helper

    Tatar earned an assist during the 6-2 victory over the Red Wings on Tuesday.

    Tatar used his speed and determination to get back at the team that made him a second-round draft pick in 2009. Tatar hustled into the Red Wings' zone Tuesday, outbattled goalie Alex Nedeljkovic for the puck, and passed to an open Nico Hischier. Tatar's third-period marker restored the Devils' three-goal cushion. Tatar, who was held off the scoresheet during the Devils' opening five games, now has a goal and a helper in back-to-back outings. The third-line right winger is stepping up with the Devils playing with just 11 forwards.

  • Devils' Tomas Tatar: Substantial drop-off since 2019-20

    Tatar totaled four shots and a blocked shot in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Islanders.

    Tatar has yet to mark the scoresheet through four games while skating on the third line and No. 2 power-play unit. He had 61 points in 68 games for the Canadiens in 2019-20, but the veteran winger has only 60 points in 130 games since.

  • Devils' Tomas Tatar: Joins practice

    Tatar (illness) was on the ice Thursday to begin training camp, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

    Tatar missed time with an illness at the end of last season, but he's fully healthy now. The 31-year-old winger will likely see a middle-six role in 2022-23, though his production has declined sharply over the last two years and he may see a reduced role on the power play entering the campaign.

  • Devils' Tomas Tatar: Missing final game of season

    Tatar (illness) won't be in the lineup for Friday's regular-season finale versus Detroit.

    Tatar will finish the season having tallied 15 goals and 30 points while posting an ugly minus-22 rating through 76 contests. The 31-year-old winger will likely produce similar, if not marginally better numbers while skating in a middle-six role with the Devils in 2022-23.

  • Devils' Tomas Tatar: Not playing Thursday

    Tatar (illness) won't be ready to play against Carolina on Thursday, Catherine Bogart of the Devils' official site reports.

    Tatar was struggling even before falling ill, as he is mired in a six-game pointless streak dating back to April 12 versus the Coyotes. At this point, with a back-to-back to end the year, Tatar should probably be considered doubtful, at best, to suit up versus Detroit on Friday, though he hasn't been officially ruled out.

  • Devils' Tomas Tatar: Out Tuesday

    Tatar (undisclosed) is not in Tuesday's lineup against Ottawa, per the NHL's media site.

    It's unclear if Tatar is injured or if he's getting a night off as the season nears a close. The veteran winger hasn't missed a game since Jan. 2 and has racked up 30 points through 76 appearances on the year. His next chance to suit up will be Thursday against Carolina.

It's been a good run lately for Tatar, who has three goals and an assist in his last five outings. The streaky winger is up to 15 tallies, 30 points, 128 shots, 69 hits, 20 PIM and a minus-16 rating in 70 appearances.
