Brodeur likely won't join Devils on road trip

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.

The Devils' trip, which started with a 3-1 loss at the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday, continues Saturday with a game at the Buffalo Sabres, and concludes Monday at the Toronto Maple Leafs.

In 13 games this season, Brodeur is 8-2-3 with a 2.27 goals-against average and .927 save percentage.

Quote of the Day

Life's about opportunity and how you respond to that opportunity, and obviously he must have some swagger about him, some confidence about him, because he was solid. He made some good saves. He was 6-foot-3 on every shot, which is a good thing for a goalie. He played well. We got a win.
