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.
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.
— Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock on rookie goaltender Garret Sparks, who made 24 saves in his first NHL start, a 3-0 win vs. Oilers
