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.

It's hard to walk into that locker room and look those guys in the eye when they've played -- clearly, that was our best game we've played in the series -- and I thought we deserved a better fate tonight.
