Ruff may be mixing up lines with Devils struggling to score

NEWARK, N.J (AP) Coach Lindy Ruff seemingly is shaking up his lines with the New Jersey Devils slumping and struggling to score.

A day after losing 2-1 to the New York Islanders, Ruff altered all four of New Jersey's line combinations on Wednesday in preparation for consecutive games against the rival Rangers on Thursday and Saturday at the Prudential Center.

The top four centers all stayed in place with Pavel Zacha, Jack Hughes, Travis Zajac and Michael McLeod in the middle. Each line had at least one new winger.
