Coach John Hynes decided to make the move with New Jersey trailing 2-0 in the best-of-7 series.
Monday night’s game will mark the return of forward Marcus Johansson to the lineup. He has been sidelined since late January with a concussion.
Hynes also elected to go with six defensemen instead of the seven he used in Game 2. Mirco Mueller is a healthy scratch.
