KEY GAME INFORMATION
NEW JERSEY: NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - While other teams made the most of the lockout-shortened season, the New Jersey Devils missed the playoffs a year after making the Stanley Cup finals.
There were injuries. There were slumps. It was not pretty.
But it was also only one part of the story. Then came the offseason.
Forward Ilya Kovalchuk stunned the team in July, by walking away from $77 million left on his 15-year contract to play in Russia. Technically, the 30-year-old retired. Realistically, he left the Devils without a star player. Forward David Clarkson left via free agency, as well, and so when New Jersey opens Oct. 3 at Pittsburgh, you will see some new faces in new places.
PITTSBURGH: PITTSBURGH (AP) - The Pittsburgh Penguins didn't panic when the bitter disappointment of last spring's sweep at the hands of the Boston Bruins wore off.
If anything, the Penguins went the other way. While other NHL powers underwent substantial roster overhauls, Pittsburgh did what it could to keep the core of one of the league's most consistent winners in tack.
The Penguins awarded coach Dan Bylsma with a contract extension shortly after getting swept by the Bruins in the Eastern Conference finals. Pittsburgh also reached agreements with former league MVP Evgeni Malkin and Norris Trophy finalist Kris Letang.
Penguins star Sidney Crosby says the Penguins don't need to change their approach to be a threat to win their second Stanley Cup in five years.
Pittsburgh opens the season Oct. 3 against New Jersey.

*Devils-Penguins Preview* =========================

By ALAN FERGUSON STATS Writer

New Jersey (0-0-0) at Pittsburgh (0-0-0), 7:00 p.m. EDT

The Pittsburgh Penguins made few changes despite falling short in the playoffs once again.

The New Jersey Devils had a more eventful offseason.

The Penguins will have a couple of missing players for Thursday night's opener against the visiting Devils, who are expected to start new goaltender Cory Schneider instead of Martin Brodeur.

While other franchises might not fret, Pittsburgh's four-season Stanley Cup drought is perhaps at least a slight concern for fans of such a talent-laden roster. The Penguins (36-12-0 in 2012) made it to the Eastern Conference finals last season - their first appearance since their Cup win in 2009 - but were outscored 12-2 by Boston in a four-game sweep.

"You have to get over it pretty quickly and realize it's a long season ahead of us," forward Sidney Crosby said. "We've got to learn from that but obviously you can't dwell on it. I think we've moved on."

Instead of retooling, Pittsburgh extended coach Dan Bylsma's contract by two seasons, and gave former MVP Evgeni Malkin and Norris Trophy finalist Kris Letang eight-year deals. Pascal Dupuis, one of three Penguins players to score at least 20 goals last season, inked a four-year deal with the team that finished with the best record in the East.

The Penguins will have to get over some early injuries in their attempt to duplicate that feat. Letang is starting the season on injured reserve (lower body) but could return soon.

More troubling was the news that goaltender Tomas Vokoun is expected to miss three to six months with blood clots in his hips. Vokoun took over as the team's starter in the playoffs after Marc-Andre Fleury posted a 3.40 goals-against average in the opening-round series against the New York Islanders.

Should Fleury, who spent a portion of the offseason working with a sports psychologist to help him regain his confidence, struggle again, the Penguins might have to rely on Jeff Zatkoff, who has yet to appear in an NHL game.

The Devils (19-19-10), meanwhile, have two top-flight goaltenders in Schneider and the future Hall of Famer Brodeur, who will likely end a run of 18 straight season-opening starts.

New Jersey got Schneider from Vancouver on June 30 in exchange for a first-round pick. The 27-year-old netminder went 53-21-7 with a 2.09 GAA in his last three seasons.

The 41-year-old Brodeur, who was 13-9-7 with a 2.22 GAA last season, is expected to start Friday's home opener against the Islanders.

New acquisitions Jaromir Jagr - the NHL's No. 8 all-time leading scorer - Michael Ryder and Damien Brunner will try to help replace at least some of Ilya Kovalchuk's output.

The 30-year-old Kovalchuk, who played three-plus seasons in New Jersey and amassed 417 career goals, made the shocking announcement in July that he was walking away from the $77 million left on his contract to play in his native Russia.

"I think they did the right thing - to move on," Brodeur said. "It was impressive to see how quickly the organization moved to bring in a lot of new faces. It's going to be an adjustment for everyone. It's going to be interesting to see how all the pieces of the puzzle (general manager Lou Lamoriello) brought in fit and how everything pans out."

One of those new pieces, Schneider, will try to stop Crosby from quickly building on a successful but injury-shortened season. The former MVP finished third in the NHL with 56 points despite playing just 36 of the season's 48 games because of a broken jaw.

A concussion and a shoulder injury played a part in limiting Malkin to nine goals - in 31 games - after he scored 50 and totaled a league-best 109 points in his Hart Trophy-winning season of 2011-12.

The Penguins were outscored 9-4 in losing their final three 2012-13 matchups to New Jersey.
