No update yet on Salvador
Volchenkov left early from Thursday's practice.
The Devils practiced Thursday morning at AmeriHealth Pavilion, and close out the preseason schedule with a weekend home-and-home against the Islanders: Friday at Prudential Center, Saturday at Nassau Coliseum.

They host the Dallas Stars on Friday, Oct. 8, to officially open the regular season.

Thursday's lines:
Zach Parise - Travis Zajac - Ilya Kovalchuk
Patrik Elias - Jason Arnott - Jamie Langenbrunner
Dainius Zubrus - Jacob Josefson - David Clarkson
Brian Rolston - Adam Mair - Mattias Tedenby
Pierre-Luc Letourneau-Leblond - Rod Pelley - Nick Palmieri

On defense: Colin White, Matt Taormina, Andy Greene, Henrik Tallinder, Alexander Urbom, Rob Davison, Mark Fraser, Matt Corrente

Goaltenders: Martin Brodeur, Johan Hedberg, Mike McKenna

Not on the ice: Bryce Salvador, Anton Volchenkov. Salvador went for tests Wednesday morning after a collision in Tuesday's preseason game with the Flyers.

"Not much more than you've been told," head coach John MacLean said when asked what he knew about Salvador's status. "We're still waiting for the tests."

That was echoed by team President/CEO/GM Lou Lamoriello.

"Until we get all the tests back, we have no comment," Lamoriello said.

Meanwhile, Volchenkov played it safe after getting hit by a shot.

"He took a shot off the foot in practice, so instead of pushing it – I expect him to be ready to play tomorrow – I just told him to go off and ride the bike," MacLean said.

The coach had yet to set his lineup for Friday, but said Brodeur will make his third start of the preseason. Hedberg could start Saturday at Long Island.

"We're going to play some of the lines that we've been playing together so far, but we're also going to get a look at some of the other guys in different spots still," he said. "Again, that's what training camp's for."

Power play
Devils worked on the man advantage with Arnott and Taormina at the points, Elias, Langenbrunner, Tedenby up front... Other units feature Josefson line with Greene and Corrente at points; Kovy line with Taormina and Rolston at the points.
