New Jersey Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello told The (Bergen) Record that goaltender Martin Brodeur remains day-to-day with a sore back, and he does not anticipate Brodeur joining the team on its current road trip.
Brodeur has not played since removing himself during warm-ups prior to the Devils' game Feb. 23 against the Washington Capitals.
Carter, who has been out of the lineup since suffering a concussion Feb. 18, likely will resume his usual role on the third line alongside Stephen Gionta and Steve Bernier when the Devils travel to First Niagara Center to face the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday.
