New Jersey goalie Martin Brodeur told The (Bergen) Record that his injured right shoulder feels better, but not good enough for him to play tonight against the Predators.
"From the day I hurt it to the next day to today, it's going the right way," he said this morning at Bridgestone Arena, where he received treatment on the shoulder. "I'm really happy about the way it feels. It's just there’s no sense for me to rush to try to get in. I probably won't practice tomorrow, either. Take another day and we’ll go from there. But it feels really, really good. I'm happy about the way it's going."
That's today's game. That's one of the things you have to deal with when you're a championship team. Guys are going to earn more money based on their performance and what they've achieved, [and] deservedly so. [Saad] falls into that category.
