The New Jersey Devils received a boost to their lineup for Monday’s Game 3 against the Tampa Bay Lightning as forward Marcus Johansson returned after missing 37 games with a concussion.

Johansson suffered the injury on Jan. 23 after he was on the receiving end of an elbow courtesy of Boston Bruins winger Brad Marchand. He was then sidelined for the final 35 contests of the regular season, plus the two opening playoff games against the Lightning.

The Devils acquired Johansson from the Washington Capitals last offseason, and will hope he can provide a boost after dropping their first two games against the Lightning.

Johansson netted 14 points in 29 games this season. He scored 58 points with the Capitals last year.
