NEWARK, N.J. -- Martin Brodeur was supposed to start for the New Jersey Devils on Sunday against the Winnipeg Jets, but Johan Hedberg is getting the call instead. Hedberg will start for the second time in as many days.
Brodeur left the ice early during warmups and did not return. A team spokesman said Brodeur has "a little soreness, will be re-evaluated tomorrow."
The old saying in hockey is 'weather the storm.' I put the notion in their heads that we don't want to weather the storm, we want to push just as hard and matched their work ethic. I thought our guys exceeded that in the first period.
