At the Rink: Panthers at Blues

ST. LOUIS -- Having played a combined 1,400-plus regular season and Stanley Cup Playoff games, Monday will be one of those rare firsts for St. Louis Blues goalie Martin Brodeur.

Brodeur, who spent his entire 21-year career with the New Jersey Devils before signing with the Blues on Dec. 2, will play his first home game when the Blues face the Florida Panthers at Scottrade Center.

Brodeur encountered this occasion one other time when the Devils played at the Meadowlands, so it's been a while in that regard.

"I'm looking forward to it; I think it's an advantage to play in your home building," said Brodeur, who is 40-16-2 in 65 career games against the Panthers. "Fans are always a big component and a reason the guys have success in their building. It'll be interesting to see how it is."

At the Rink: Devils at Maple Leafs

TORONTO -- The New Jersey Devils announced that right wing Jaromir Jagr and defenseman Adam Larsson will not play against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Thursday because of the flu.

Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello also said forward Patrik Elias will not play Thursday after sustaining a groin injury in a loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday.

Lamoriello said Jagr did not sustain a concussion on a hit by the Penguins' Robert Bortuzzo with 2:03 remaining in the second period of the Devils' game in Pittsburgh on Tuesday. Jagr did not return after the hit; Bortuzzo was suspended for two games by the NHL Department of Player Safety on Wednesday.

"Jagr was sick before the game the other night [in Pittsburgh]," Lamoriello said, according to NJ.com. "He does not have a concussion. We went through all the tests after the game, last night and this morning. He just can't go. He's completely dehydrated so we sent him back to the hotel."

Blues GM Armstrong: Brodeur can win games for us

St. Louis Blues general manager Doug Armstrong joined NHL Live to discuss the signing of goalie Martin Brodeur. The NHL's all-time leader in wins (688) and shutouts (124) signed a one-year contract with the Blues on Tuesday.

Armstrong began talking with Brodeur's agent, Pat Brisson, in the summer, when he told him he was comfortable with Jake Allen and Brian Elliott as his goaltenders. Brisson called Armstrong back in October stating that Brodeur still wanted to play and to contact him if anything changed.

After Elliott sustained a lower-body injury Nov. 25, Armstrong called Brisson to inquire if Brodeur still wanted to play. Talks picked up in the next 24 hours before Brodeur was brought in on a tryout and eventually signed.

At the Rink: Senators at Islanders

Goalie Jaroslav Halak will tie a New York Islanders record with a win Tuesday against the Ottawa Senators at Nassau Coliseum.

Halak, who was the NHL's First Star of the Week for last week, has won nine consecutive decisions, a personal best. He can tie the team record of 10 straight wins set by Hockey Hall of Fame goalie Billy Smith in 1982.

Halak went 9-1-0 with a 1.37 goals-against average and .950 save percentage in 10 November games. He was 3-0 with one shutout, a 0.95 GAA and .964 save percentage in games against Metropolitan Division opponents the Philadelphia Flyers, Washington Capitals and New Jersey Devils last week.

"It's a reflection of everybody, not only myself," Halak told the Islanders website Monday. "You need your teammates to perform well and everybody needs to do their job on the ice. We just need to work hard every day and try to do our best every game we play. Because if you don't play well the next game, it doesn't mean anything what we did in the last game."

Quote of the Day

He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.
