DeBoer proud of Eastern Conference banner


 
There's a new banner in the rafters at Prudential Center, and though it doesn't say "Stanley Cup Champions," head coach Pete DeBoer is still proud of what his club achieved last season.

They won a Game 7 on the road in Florida, then knocked off their two top rivals–the Flyers and Rangers–to reach the Final versus Los Angeles. After falling behind 3-0 against the Kings, the Devils rallied with two victories before falling in Game 6.

The Devils' defense of their 2011-12 Eastern Conference crown continues with Tuesday's home opener against Philadelphia.

"Every year you look at a team and you use the adage, Did they empty the tank?" DeBoer said Tuesday. "I really believe we did last year even though we didn't win. There's nothing worse than going into a summer where you know your team didn't empty the tank and give you everything they had. That wasn't the case last year, so I'm very proud of all our accomplishments."

DeBoer will use the same lineup from Saturday's 2-1 win at Long Island. The lines at morning skate were:

Dainius Zubrus - Travis Zajac - Ilya Kovalchuk
Mattias Tedenby - Patrik Elias - David Clarkson
Ryan Carter - Stephen Gionta - Steve Bernier
Stefan Matteau - Jacob Josefson - Cam Janssen

Bryce Salvador - Marek Zidlicky
Andy Greene - Mark Fayne
Henrik Tallinder - Anton Volchenkov

Martin Brodeur (Johan Hedberg)

• DeBoer said Adam Henrique (thumb) is "a week to 10 days" away from returning.
