Captain Jamie Langenbrunner
won't play in either of the Devils' two playoff games at Carolina. GM Lou Lamoriello says the lower body injury that sent Langenbrunner to the locker room midway through Game 2 will keep him on the sidelines.
Langenbrunner stayed home Saturday when the Devils flew to Raleigh for Game 3, scheduled for Sunday night.
will not be with us on this trip," Lamoriello said. "He'll be out these next two games. We'll see how he is when we get back. He's not out of the series."
Coach Brent Sutter
used Patrik Elias
in Langenbrunner's spot after the injury. Brian Rolston
could get the call on Sunday night.
"I'm looking forward to the opportunity," Rolston said. "With Jamie out, maybe I'll be given the opportunity to play the point on the first power play unit. I'm not nervous about it. I'm ready for whatever he gives me."
