The New Jersey Devils recalled Mike Sislo from the Albany Devils of the American Hockey League prior to Tuesday night’s game with the Buffalo Sabres.


Buffalo defeated New Jersey 3-2 in a shootout.

Sislo was inserted into the lineup to take the place of LW Ryane Clowe, who suffered an upper-body injury in Monday’s victory over Florida.

The former Superior Spartan had three shots and a hit in 10:41 of playing time.

Sislo also took the Devils' final shot in the shootout, but Sabre goaltender Nathan Lieuwen got his right pad on a back-hand attempt as New Jersey extended its NHL record to 15 straight shootout losses - including 11 this season

Buffalo snapped a four-game winless skid with just its second victory in 13 contests (2-10-1).

NOTES: Sislo is wearing No. 9. … The Albany Devils have eight games remaining in the regular season. … Sislo leads Albany with 23 goals and 16 assists in 57 games. … Clowe didn’t make the trip to Buffalo after taking a shot to the head in Monday's win over Florida, although team officials insisted the move was strictly precautionary. Clowe, who missed 32 games earlier this season because of a concussion, had six points in the last six games
