Report: Hedberg to start for Devils
According to The (Bergen) Record, Johan Hedberg will start in goal for the New Jersey Devils today when they host the Carolina Hurricanes. Puck drop is set for 1 p.m., one of four Columbus Day matinees.

Hedberg backed up Martin Brodeur in Saturday's opening-night 3-0 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers.

Hedberg went 15-12-2 in 34 games, with a career-best 2.38 goals-against average last season for the Devils.
Quote of the Day

That's a really tough thing to play through; when you finally are thrown out there, the game is fast, intense, every single play matters, you've got to find a way to play through that and make smart plays. So it's a huge testament to [Vermette] and some other individuals in our locker room that are putting their own ego, their own wants and needs aside, and are ready for those opportunities when they do come.
