Devils team scope: Right wing Tuomo Ruutu is expected to miss 4-6 weeks because of a fracture in his right foot. "He was making progress and then it halted a little bit this weekend, so he got another X-ray and found the fracture," coach John Hynes told NorthJersey.com. Left wing Patrik Elias still is skating on his own but isn't ready to practice with the team after sustaining an injury to his right knee during training camp. New Jersey claimed forward Bobby Farnham, 26, off waivers from the Pittsburgh Penguins on Monday. Farnham, who played for Hynes for parts of three seasons with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton in the American Hockey League, could be in the lineup Tuesday. The Devils are looking to win a fifth straight game for the first time since Feb. 3-10, 2013. Goaltender Cory Schneider is expected to make his sixth straight start. He made 26 saves in a 4-3 win against the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday, marking his fourth straight victory.
