Fast-paced start for DeBoer-led Devils
Question of the Day
Greene said that he encourages DeBoer’s positive energy and personality.
“You can see the intensity from the first day,” Greene said. “You know what he wants and he demands the energy. I think it’s a good way to be. Of course, winning helps and makes things easier. We know we have to win this year.”
But that’s a tough task. The Devils are tenants in a difficult Atlantic Division, where the Flyers made wholesale changes, and the Penguins expect to be healthier. Both teams finished with 106 points last season, and the Rangers also made the postseason out of that division last year, with 93 points.
The Devils, thanks to the slow start, finished with just 81.
“Things are definitely looking up this year,” Josefson said.
The Devils spent most of Tuesday’s practice sessions working on penalty killing and their power play attack. The Devils‘ lack of prowess in the power play was one of the main reasons for their horrendous start.
“Today was totally dedicated to special teams,” DeBoer said. “It was really our third practice day of camp. We did go at it early. That was the plan coming out of our coaching meetings this summer. It’s obviously an area that we red-flagged as something we want to improve at and we wanted to spend some time on it early.”
Veteran goaltender Martin Brodeur, who missed Monday’s intrasquad scrimmage with some hamstring soreness, returned to practice Tuesday.
However, Brodeur skated with the minor leaguers from the American Hockey League instead of the main club. Brodeur will not play when the Devils begin their preseason schedule Wednesday night against the New York Rangers in Albany, N.Y.
