Adam Henrique will be back in the Devils’ lineup – and back at center – for tonight’s rematch with the Montreal Canadiens at Prudential Center.

Henrique sat out the third period of Monday’s 3-2 loss in Montreal with what the team called a lower-body injury. He said having the day off Tuesday helped and he has no concerns about it being a lingering issue.

“Yeah, I worked some magic yesterday,” he said. “Got some sleep. It was a good day. It’s good to go. I feel good out there.”

Henrique fell after his legs got tangled with Canadiens defenseman Alexei Emelin behind the Montreal net late in the first period.

“I just kind of got mixed up there and was sore after,” he said. “The day off helped. So, I feel good out there.”

Henrique tried to play through the injury in the second period Monday, but ended up sitting out the third.

“It was bothering me through the second,” he said. “It wasn’t the same for the second period, so I think it was smart not to push it for the third.”

Devils coach Pete DeBoer has shifted Henrique back to center for tonight’s game after playing him at left wing – mostly on a line with Patrik Elias – the last five games.

“We have to find a third and fourth line that are reliable, can contribute and can have a positive effect on the game,” DeBoer said. “That’s what we’re trying to do.”

DeBoer said again today that has been overplaying Jaromir Jagr and some of the team’s other forwards because others have not been producing.

“I didn’t expect he’d be able to take the kind of workload we’ve given him so far,” DeBoer said of Jagr. “Frankly, in my mind we’re playing him too much. We’re overplaying him and a few other forwards partly because of depth and injuries and we need some secondary guys to step up and help some of those guys out.”
