The Devils just completed their morning skate for tonight's game against the Ottawa Senators at Scotiabank Place.
All players are present, including Zach Parise, who was excused from Monday's practice in New Jersey after playing in the all-star game in Montreal on Sunday. Parise came directly to Ottawa from Montreal rather than fly home to New Jersey for a few hours.
The line combinations were the same, which would mean Jay Pandolfo will be a healthy scratch tonight for the third game in a row. Pandolfo skated today with defensemen Sheldon Brookbank and Jay Leach, who also are expected to be scratched tonight.
Scott Clemmensen was stationed in the net the Devils will defend in the first and third periods tonight and was the first goaltender off the ice at the end of the skate-- both indications he will start tonight. He will be going for his 20th win of the season.
The Devils' expected lineup for tonight's game.
Forwards: Zach Parise-Travis Zajac-Jamie Langenbrunner; Patrik Elias-Dainius Zubrus-Brian Gionta; Brian Rolston-John Madden-David Clarkson; Mike Rupp-Bobby Holik-Brendan Shanahan.
Defensemen: Johnny Oduya-Paul Martin; Colin White-Mike Mottau; Bryce Salvador-Andy Greene.
Goaltender: Scott Clemmensen.
Healthy scratches: D Sheldon Brookbank, D Jay Leach, LW Jay Pandolfo.
Injured: G Martin Brodeur (torn left biceps tendon).
Ex-Devil Jason Smith is will be a heathy scratch tonight for the Senators. Brian Elliott will start in net for Ottawa.
