Sykora out, Josefson in for Game 4

Having been shut out twice in three Eastern Conference final contests by the New York Rangers, the New Jersey Devils shuffled their lineup to try and stimulate offense for Monday's Game 4 at Prudential Center.

On the outs is veteran forward Petr Sykora, removed from the lineup in favor of 21-year-old Jacob Josefson.

Though the 35-year-old Czech totaled 44 points in the regular season, he has come up with just two goals and four points over 15 postseason tilts -- and no points in three appearances against the Rangers.

Josefson hasn't played since suffering a broken left wrist on April 3. He recorded two goals and nine points in 41 regular-season contests.
