MARINA DEL REY, Calif. -- New Jersey Devils
coach Peter DeBoer
said there will be no lineup changes for his team in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final on Monday night against the Los Angeles Kings
The Devils are down 2-0 in the series, but DeBoer liked the way his team raised its game in a 2-1 overtime loss in Game 2 after losing in the same fashion in Game 1.
"We seriously consider lineup changes," DeBoer said. "We've got some depth players, some big people that are available to us. The process we've gone through after every game is watch the tape and see who can come in or come out and make us a better team. We don't want to do it based on the situation we're in. A couple guys had good games last game, and just because you lost or you're in a 2-0 hole doesn't mean you make changes just to make changes. I don't think we're at that point. We don't need to panic and do that."
Defenseman Henrik Tallinder
, who is healthy after dealing with a blood clot in his leg in January, made the trip to Los Angeles but will not break into the lineup. Rookie Adam Larsson
, who hasn't played since Game 1 of the conference finals against the Rangers, will sit for the eighth straight game.
These are the lines the Devils showed at practice Tuesday. With a 5 p.m. local start time for Game 3, the Devils did not have a morning skate.
