In declaring Martin Gerber his starting goalie against the Devils at yesterday's morning skate, coach John Paddock had some reasonable rationale. "It's his turn," said Paddock. "I think at this stage, with the light schedule, the right thing to do is alternate." So that would mean Ray Emery plays at home Thursday against the Thrashers, and the two split the home-and-home series with the Bruins on Saturday and next Sunday -- for now ... With scrappy Cam Janssen out nursing a shoulder injury, Senators enforcer Brian McGrattan was a healthy scratch last night ... Devils fans engaged in two lively shout-outs early last night. The first was a "Captain Stevens" chant for Hall of Fame D Scott Stevens, who was on hand and on the red carpet in opening ceremonies. The next was spontaneous and came about five or six minutes into the first period, the subject another the Devils fans feel passionate about: "Rangers Suck!"
