The struggling Dallas Stars and the New Jersey Devils shook up their lineups at the trade deadline in an effort to stabilize their precarious playoff positions.
Heading to New Jersey are forwards Joe Nieuwendyk and Jamie Langenbrunner. The Stars get centre Jason Arnott, winger Randy McKay and a first-round draft pick.
Arnott has 22 goals and 19 assists for the Devils this season, but has missed the last three games with a back-rib muscle injury. McKay has six goals in 55 games.
For Dallas, Nieuwendyk has 23 goals and 24 assists and Langenbrunner has 10 goals and 16 assists.
