New Jersey Devils To Make Several Lineup Changes For Stanley Cup Finals Game 4

With their backs against the wall in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals, the New Jersey Devils will make a number of lineup changes in what could be the last game of the 2011-12 NHL season.

Head coach Pete DeBoer confirmed that forward Petr Sykora would return to the lineup in Game 4 and that defenseman Henrik Tallinder, who looks like Dr. House, would return as well. Sykora has been a healthy scratch since Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Final against the New York Rangers while Tallinder has been out since mid-January with a blood clot.

Peter Harrold will come out of the lineup on defense while Jacob Josefson will sit for Sykora. Tallinder believes his experience will help him come back from the injury quickly.

"I've had my fair share of injuries in coming back, Tallinder said. "Not in the playoffs, but during regular season. I mean, that's how I have to approach this game, just like I've approached other games I've been coming back, or other injuries I'm coming back from. I just have to go through with my experience."
