Coach Peter DeBoer used Wednesday's practice to fine-tune the power play, which has gone two-for-11 in three preseason contests.

The Devils close out the exhibition schedule with three games in three nights beginning Thursday in Philadelphia (streaming live on newjerseydevils.com).

The skate began with a 20-minute scrimmage. Later, DeBoer and assistant coach Adam Oates helped on-ice with positioning.

"Some game situation, some specialty team time," DeBoer said. "We spent a lot of time on our specialty teams today, just the details of the game. It’s tough when you’ve got a full camp to really concentrate on the details. That’s where we’re at now."

The Devils (1-2-0 in preseason) host the Islanders on Friday and the Flyers on Saturday. The regular season opens at Prudential Center against Philadelphia on Oct. 8.

The remaining exhibition games can impact the roster decisions that will have to be made before the puck drops on 2011-12. In the meantime, DeBoer will continue his preparations.

"I think the general foundation is in place on how we want to play, now it’s just working through situations and details," he said. "There’s no better way to do that than live-game action. You can walk through practice all you want. Until you’re reading and reacting in a game situation, it’s not the same."

Zach Parise-Patrik Elias-David Clarkson comprised one power-play unit, with Ilya Kovalchuk and Adam Larsson on the back end. Mattias Tedenby-Jacob Josefson-Nick Palmieri were another trio, with Anton Stralman and Mark Fayne at the points.
