Devils coach Peter DeBoer
told The (Bergen) Record he hadn't decided on his lineup for the game Tuesday, and that all 13 forwards would skate in the pre-game warm-ups.
That means Steve Bernier
, a healthy scratch Sunday when the teams played at the Prudential Center, could get back in the lineup.
"We're dealing with some bumps and bruises and we'll see," DeBoer said following the team's morning skate at Wells Fargo Center.
However, DeBoer also could opt to keep Eric Boulton
and Cam Janssen
in the lineup to match the Flyers' physicality. He liked the way that part of the game went in a 4-1 win Sunday. He said he expects to see an equally as physical game Tuesday.
"They always do," DeBoer said of the Flyers playing physical. "They're at home and that's what they do. We expect that."
Here's the projected lineup the Devils for tonight:
- Adam Henrique
- Ilya Kovalchuk
- Dainius Zubrus
- Petr Sykora
- Jacob Josefson
- David Clarkson
- Ryan Carter
- Steve Bernier
- Mark Fayne
- Anton Volchenkov
- Bryce Salvador
will be in goal, with Johan Hedberg
Defenseman Matt Taormina
will be a healthy scratch.
