Sykora, Tallinder to play in Game 4

With his team facing a 3-0 hole in the Stanley Cup finals, Devils coach Peter DeBoer has decided to make a pair of changes for Game 4 on Wednesday night.

Left winger Petr Sykora and defenseman Henrik Tallinder have been inserted into the lineup, while center Jacob Josefson and defenseman Peter Harrold will be healthy scratches.

Sykora hasn’t played since Game 3 of the conference finals, while Tallinder has been out since mid-January with a blood clot in his lower left leg.
