Devils Vs. Rangers Lineup: New Jersey Makes Line Changes, Adam Larsson May Sit Game 2

After losing Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals 3-0, the New Jersey Devils made a few lineup changes in preparation for Game 2.

New Jersey coach Peter DeBoer tweaked the line combinations for Game 2, according to a report from NorthJersey.com. The Devils will go back to using the same combinations they used in the first round against Florida. That means, Zach Parise, Travis Zajac and Ilya Kovalchuk will be on the top line. The second line will consist of Patrik Elias, Petr Sykora and Dainius Zubrus while Adam Henrique will group with Alexei Ponikarovsky and David Clarkson on the third line.

There will also be some changes to the New Jersey defense. Peter Harrold, who hasn't played since Game 2 of the Devils' second-round series, will be back in the lineup against the Rangers. Harrold will replace rookie Adam Larsson and will be used on the Devils second power play unit. Larsson will shift to the extra defenseman and may not play in Game 2.
