Practice Report: Tedenby Joins Top Line As Devils Prep For Caps

The Devils were back at it this morning, preparing for tomorrow’s game against old friend Adam Oates, the new coach of the Washington Capitals.

Here’s today’s forwards with an interesting swap of LWs. I’ll update this thread as we go along today.

Forwards
Tedenby-Zajac-Kovalchuk
Zubrus-Elias-Clarkson
Carter-Gionta- Bernier
Matteau-Josefson-Barch

Defense
Salvador-Zidlicky
Greene-Fayne
Tallinder-Volchenkov
Larsson-Harrold

UPDATE: Devils did some power play work at the end of practice today after a 1-for-9 start in the first two games under assistant coach Matt Shaw. I missed the line combos, but according to Tom Gulitti of Fire & Ice, Elias skated with Clarkson and Zajac on the top unit with Zidlicky and Kovy at the points. The second unit featured Zubrus, Bernier and Josefson with Greene and Tallinder on the points.

UPDATE2: DeBoer said he wasn’t sure if these lines will stick tomorrow. Said he planned to meet with his staff this afternoon and figure it out from there.
