Injuries and a lack of success has the Devils still looking for answers on the power play.
They lost another pointman with Andy Greene now sidelined with a broken right hand for four to six weeks. For practice today, Paul Martin and Johnny Oduya worked the points on the first unit and Martin and Mike Mottau worked with the second unit.
Right wing Jamie Langenbrunner did not practice today for what GM Lou Lamoriello called "personal reasons", but will work the point on one of the two power-play units in Saturday's game against Atlanta.
"Jamie is still going to play the point on the power play and you've got Paul and you've got Motts and probably in all likelyhood Johnny is going to get an opportunity to play on that too," Devils coach Brent Sutter said.
Up front, the Devils used Patrik Elias, Dainius Zubrus and Brian Gionta on the first unit and Zach Parise, Travis Zajac and David Clarkson on the second unit.
