Oh, and by the way, Elias has the mumps
From The Record’s Tom Gulitti, with a follow-up note to the big news of the day in New Jersey:
In other news, Patrik Elias has a confirmed case of the mumps. Lamoriello said test shows Martin Havlat doesn't have mumps, "just a virus."— Tom Gulitti (@TomGulittiNHL) December 26, 2014
The Devils confirmed Monday that Elias and Havlat were undergoing tests for the illness, which has already infected teammates Travis Zajac and Adam Larsson.
Neither Elias nor Havlat will play Saturday in New York versus the Rangers.
