Devils' Brodeur ruled out of Tuesday's game

It's likely New Jersey Devils goalie Martin Brodeur will miss at least two more games with the back problems that have sidelined him since Feb. 21.

The (Bergen) Record reported late last week that Brodeur would not join the team for Monday's game at the Toronto Maple Leafs, and general manager Lou Lamoriello told the newspaper Sunday that Brodeur was out for Tuesday's home game against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Brodeur, 8-2-3 with a 2.27 goals-against average and .911 save percentage, has been out since removing himself from the game during pregame warm-ups prior to a game Feb. 23 against the Washington Capitals.

Johan Hedberg has started the last four games in Brodeur's absence, going 0-3-1 while allowing 14 goals.

Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
