NEWARK - For the second straight season, Jedis took over the Prudential Center.

The Devils hosted their second annual Star Wars night on Friday against the St. Louis Blues, one week before the release of the newest Star Wars movie, "Rogue One".

Price won't face discipline

Along with music and a custom 3D show during pregame introductions, the Devils had more than 70 characters throughout the arena, taking pictures with fans and even putting on light saber battles.

One of the characters present was a functional R2-D2, which spent the night cruising around the concourse.

Canadiens' Carey Price won't face discipline for attack on Devils' Kyle Palmieri

Montreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price won't face further discipline for attacking Devils forward Kyle Palmieri when they two became entangled in the crease during the Canadiens' 5-2 victory on Thursday night.

A league spokesman confirmed to NJ Advance Media that there would be no further repercussions for Price, who repeatedly punched Palmieri with his blocker.

Price received a pair of roughing minors on the play but, he could've been ejected, based on rule 51.3:

Match Penalty - If, in the judgment of the Referee, a goalkeeper uses his blocking glove to punch an opponent in the head or face in an attempt to or to deliberately injure an opponent, a match penalty must be assessed.

Price said he had no regrets after also drawing contact on Adam Henrique's goal earlier in the first period.

"I got run on the first goal and I wasn't going to take another one," Price said, via the Montreal Gazette. "I got fired up, I guess. I'm going to stick up for myself now.

"It seems to be the nature of the league, to go hard to the net, run the goalie and score the goal. You have to stick up for yourself once in a while."

The Devils trailed 2-1 at the time of the incident, and the Canadiens scored the next two goals to take control of the game.

"It's not fun to get a blocker to the head or the ribs. We got a power play out of it, but I don't know the rule on it and what's considered what," Palmieri said. "Any time you're on the ice defenseless and you're taking a blocker to the back of the head, it's not a great situation to be in."
