PHILADELPHIA -- Ilya Kovalchuk will be out of the New Jersey Devils lineup in Game 2 at Wells Fargo Center on Tuesday evening, and coach Peter DeBoer will send one of his blueliners up front to take his spot.
Peter Harrold, who played on the third pairing with Anton Volchenkov in Game 1 on Sunday, will likely join Stephen Gionta and Ryan Carter on the Devils' fourth line. Defenseman Adam Larsson, who was a scratch in each of the team's eight playoff games so far, will make his playoff debut in Harrold's spot on the third pairing.
The Devils will shift David Clarkson up on a line with Zach Parise and Patrik Elias as they hope to minimize the impact of Kovalchuk's absence. Here's a look at the full Devils lineup as we expect it in Game 2:
The Philadelphia Flyers, meanwhile, will go with the same lineup as they did in Game 1. It looks like this:
