Devils hope for home victory to prevent 3-0 deficit

Posted: Updated:
NEWARK -

The Devils are playing host in a Stanley Cup playoff game Monday night for the first time in six years.

The Devils hope their home ice advantage will give them a much-needed win, as they trail the Tampa Bay Lightning 2-0 in the series.

The Devils will go back with Cory Schneider as their goalie in Game 3 after he lost his starting role earlier in the year. He already played in Game 2 after replacing starter Keith Kinkaid.

Marcus Johansson is also due to play for New Jersey after missing nearly three months due to a concussion he suffered from an elbow to the head.
