Lineup Changes: No Morning Skate Today (UPDATE)

UPDATE: That means we’ll likely see the same line combinations the Devils rolled out in practice yesterday, starting with Stefan Matteau on the first line at left wing.

Here’s what else Devils fans should expect to start the game tonight, with Martin Brodeur in net:

Forwards                                                                                                      Defense
Stefan Matteau-Travis Zajac-Ilya Kovalchuk                                  Bryce Salvador-Marek Zidlicky
Dainius Zubrus-Patrik Elias-David Clarkson                                     Henrik Tallinder-Anton Volchenkov
Ryan Carter-Stephen Gionta-Steve Bernier                                      Andy Greene-Mark Fayne
Mattias Tedenby-Jacob Josefson-Cam Janssen

That means Adam Larsson and Peter Harrold will likely be inactive again and Krys Barch is back in the press box after one game on the ice.

Lineup Changes: Devils Roll Same Lines, No D Pairs At AM Skate

The Devils rolled the same lines from Saturday’s game at today’s morning skate, meaning you should expect the same forward lines against the Flyers tonight, at least to start. As a reminder, here’s the line combos:

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

As for defense, the Devils didn’t pair up players on the back end Tuesday morning, which is a little curious, although I expect the same pairings at least to start. And with there being a couple days off in between the last game and tonight, it’s Marty in goal again.

Expect the same inactives against Philly, as well.
