No lineup changes for Devils
By Mike Mazzeo
Devils coach Peter DeBoer did not make any lineup changes for Game 3 of the Stanley Cup finals on Monday night.
"Well, we seriously consider lineup changes,” DeBoer told reporters in Los Angeles. "We've got some depth there. We've got some good people that are available to us."
"I think the process, we've gone through after every game is watch the tape, who can go in, come out, make us a better team. You don't want to do it on the situation you're in. If a couple guys had good games last game, just because you lost, you're in a 2-0 hole, you don't make changes just to make changes. I don't think we're at that point. We don't need to panic, do that. I don't see that as a productive answer to where we're at right now. That's the process."
• The Devils did not have a morning skate. But these were their lineup combinations during Sunday’s practice, according to those reporters in attendance:
• Behind Enemy Lines, ESPN LA.com’s Arash Markazi takes a look back at the 1993 Kings, who advanced to the Stanley Cup finals before falling to the Canadiens.
• A source told the Sports Business Journal’s Chris Botta that the Devils have generated more than $22 million in ticket sales for their 10 playoff games in 2012. Not bad for a franchise that could use an infusion of cash.
