DeBoer: \'We\'re capable of winning a Stanley Cup\'
DeBoer: \'We\'re capable of winning a Stanley Cup\'

 
Peter DeBoer didn't mince words Wednesday when asked what he thought the Devils are capable of this season.

"I think we're capable of winning a Stanley Cup," the head coach said. "I think we go into every season with that mindset. We've got a lot of guys in that room and on this team that, less than 24 months ago, were playing in Game 6 of a Stanley Cup Final. I think that's our mindset."

DeBoer will start Cory Schneider in Thursday's opener in Pittsburgh, ending Martin Brodeur's NHL-record streak of consecutive season openers with the same club at 18.

"It actually ended up being a fairly easy decision just based on the last week and a half Marty's had and what he's dealt with," DeBoer said. "There was no sense, if we were able to give him the extra day with back-to-back games, it just felt like the right thing to do."

The Devils are back to open their home schedule against the Islanders on Friday.

Wednesday's practice lines:

Ryane Clowe - Patrik Elias - Damien Brunner
Adam Henrique - Travis Zajac - Jaromir Jagr
Dainius Zubrus - Andrei Loktionov - Michael Ryder
Ryan Carter - Stephen Gionta - Steve Bernier
Rostislav Olesz - Jacob Josefson - Mattias Tedenby

Bryce Salvador - Marek Zidlicky
Andy Greene - Adam Larsson
Anton Volchenkov - Peter Harrold
Mark Fayne

Martin Brodeur
Cory Schneider
