(SportsNetwork.com) - The New Jersey Devils hope to avoid their longest losing streak of the season when they visit the rival Pittsburgh Penguins for Tuesdays Metropolitan Division clash at Consol Energy Center. The Devils are in the midst of a four-game slide, matching their longest skids of 2014-15. New Jersey previously dropped four in a row from Oct. 16-24 and Nov. 4-10, but the club hasnt lost five straight since opening the 2013-14 campaign on a 0-4-3 losing streak. The most recent loss of New Jerseys current 0-2-2 slide came Saturday when it opened a three-game road trip against the New York Islanders. New Jersey outshot the Isles by a 35-28 margin in the game, including a 16-2 edge in shots in the third period, but lost 3-1 on the scoreboard. Jaroslav Halak frustrated the Devils offense time and again, posting 34 saves and helping to kill off all four of New Jerseys power-play chances. Damien Brunner had the only goal against Halak, while Cory Schneider allowed two goals on 27 shots in the loss. The regulation defeat dropped Jersey to 3-8-2 over its last 13 games and the Devils road mark fell to 6-8-1. We can be encouraged by it but we cant be happy or satisfied, said Schneider. The Devils were without centermen Travis Zajac and Adam Henrique on Saturday after both players were hurt in Fridays game against Detroit. Those injuries led to New Jersey signing Scott Gomez to an undisclosed contract on Monday. Gomez, who spent the first seven years of his career with New Jersey, was invited to the teams training camp on a tryout contract. He was not signed by the Devils prior to the start of the season, but continued practicing with the team waiting for an opportunity. With Zajac being placed on injured reserve Monday with a lower-body issue, and Henrique still considered day-to-day with an upper-body injury, the time was right to ink Gomez. In a 14-year career totaling 987 NHL games, Gomez has tallied 173 goals and 713 points. He spent the 2013-14 season with Florida, scoring two goals and totaling 12 points in 46 games. Gomez, a first-round pick by the Devils in 1998, is expected to suit up for the Devils tonight for the first time since the 2007 playoffs. He does have skills, he knows the system, hes been practicing and well see how it goes, Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello said. New Jersey, which caps its swing Thursday in Toronto, also could have defenseman Jon Merrill (arm) back tonight. Merrill hasnt played since Nov. 1. The Penguins enter Tuesday tied with the Islanders for first place in the division and have won three of their last four games. Pittsburgh fell Friday in its home half of a home-and-home series against Carolina, but rebounded from the 4-2 setback with a road victory the following night. Thomas Greiss came up with 32 saves to help the Penguins edge the Hurricanes 3-2. The Penguins supported Greiss solid effort with first-period goals by Chris Kunitz and Robert Bortuzzo, with Christian Ehrhoff netting the eventual game-winner in the third. I thought the intensity tonight, our battle level was certainly a lot higher than last night, Penguins head coach Mike Johnston said. The Pens played Saturday without forward Marcel Goc and defenseman Kris Letang after both skaters were injured in the opener against Carolina. Letang has been ruled out for tonight, while Goc is questionable. Bortuzzo and captain Sidney Crosby are both questionable for tonight after missing Tuesdays morning skate with illnesses. Pittsburgh owns a solid 7-3-1 record at Consol this season, but has lost two of its last three home games. This evenings test kicks off a three-game stay in the Steel City, where the Devils have lost three straight, five of six and nine of their last 11. The Pens have claimed three of five overall from New Jersey and recorded an 8-3 win when the clubs met in Pittsburgh on Oct. 28. The Devils were outshot 33-19 in that game and surrendered a season-high in goals. Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 16 shots for Pittsburgh, while Schneider surrendered five goals on 23 shots and was pulled after two periods. Schneider is expected to make his 24th start of the season tonight. He is winless (0-3-0) with a 4.15 goals against average in his career against Pittsburgh. Fleury is 18-22-4 with a 2.50 GAA in 44 lifetime appearances versus the Devils. Chris Carter Jersey

Campbell returned to the field on Thursday, the next step in his recovery from a head injury sustained on Nov. 24 when he was hurt on a blindside hit by Pittsburghs William Gay. Campbell must still be cleared by an independent neurologist -- per NFL rules -- before he is allowed to play against the Patriots. Campbell took part in all drills and threw to his receivers during the portion of practice open to media members. Browns coach Rob Chudzinski said he was "very encouraged" by Campbells progress, and offensive co-ordinator Norv Turner said he was glad to have the veteran back. Campbell has started four games this season. "Well, just getting him back in the walk-through, I think everyone felt a sense of relief in terms of continuity," said Turner, who in all his seasons as a coach couldnt recall many times when he didntt know who would start this late in the week.dddddddddddd "Theres a lot of firsts this year for a lot of us," Turner said. "When you really think about it, obviously, three guys have played, but weve had six different games where weve had a different starter. Thats a challenge." Campbell, Brandon Weeden and Brian Hoyer, who suffered a season-ending knee injury, have started for Cleveland in 2013. Campbell had to sit out last weeks loss to Jacksonville and was replaced by Weeden, who started and was concussed at some point against the Jaguars. Weeden has not yet been given permission to practice. The Browns signed free agent Caleb Hanie earlier this week in case Campbell or Weeden cant play. Alex Tanney was signed last week off Dallas practice squad, and he and Hanie split the plays with Clevelands starting offence in Wednesdays practice. Turner said both young quarterbacks have made progress and can be counted on in case Campbell is unable to play.
