Lemaire not focused on former club

Jacques Lemaire's second meeting with his former team isn't likely pack the emotional punch of the first. 

Lemaire spent nine years in Minnesota before returning for a second stint with the Devils last season. The Wild were set to visit Prudential Center Tuesday at 7 p.m.

Last year's lone meeting with the Wild resulted in a 5-3 victory at the Xcel Center on Jan 2, 2010.

Minnesota native Jamie Langenbrunner potted his first career hat trick as the Devils improved to 29-10-1.

The circumstances are different this time. The Devils (10-26-2) have one win in their last eight games and are still trying to find their footing in Lemaire's third tenure. At this point, he doesn't even concern himself with the opponent, only the preparation of his own squad.

"I have so many things to think about, I don’t have time to think about the other team," Lemaire said. "There’s a time, you have to take care of your team first.

"As an example, if your team’s not working, and that’s the main problem, even if you talk about the other team and what they’re doing, is it going to help? It won’t help. You have to get your guys to work first. You have to get your guys to skate before we’re going to talk about the other team. Talk about us, what we’ve got  to do to be successful."
