Sports

NEWARK, N.J. — Cory Schneider is replacing Keith Kinkaid in goal for the New Jersey Devils in Game 3 of their first-round playoff series against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Coach John Hynes decided to make the move with New Jersey trailing 2-0 in the best-of-7 series.

Monday night’s game will mark the return of forward Marcus Johansson to the lineup. He has been sidelined since late January with a concussion.

Johansson skated on the left wing with Pavel Zacha at centre and Patrick Maroon on the right side in Monday’s morning skate.

Miles Wood was dropped to the fourth line, where he will skate with Brian Boyle and Drew Stafford. Michael Grabner, who was acquired in mid-February from the Rangers, is not in the lineup.

Hynes also elected to go with six defencemen instead of the seven he used in Game 2. Mirco Mueller is a healthy scratch.
