Practice Report: Getting Ready for Game 1

The Devils are getting ready for Game 1 with a practice session this afternoon at Prudential Center.

Cam Janssen, who has yet to play in the playoffs, apperaed first on the ice, reports Tom Gulitti of The Record.

Gulitti notes that Coach Pete De Boar made some changes in the first three lines. Alexei Ponikarovsky moved up to the first line as Zach Parise and Petr Sykora were demoted one lines each. The fourth line remained the same.

The Devils worked on their power play during practice, Gulitti tweeted.
