Brodeur: Shoulder better, but not good enough
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."

With Brodeur out, Johan Hedberg will start, with Keith Kinkaid called up from AHL Albany to serve as the backup.

Here's what the rest of the Devils' lineup likely will look like tonight:

Zach Parise - Patrik Elias - Petr Sykora
Ilya Kovalchuk - Jacob Josefson - Nick Palmieri
Mattias Tedenby - Dainius Zubrus - David Clarkson
Eric Boulton - Brad Mills - Cam Janssen

Andy Greene - Adam Larsson
Henrik Tallinder - Mark Fayne
Bryce Salvador - Anton Volchenkov

Quote of the Day

I've got a lot of experience and there's a lot of young guys. It's even making me excited a little more. It's kind of a new life. At my age, I feel like I know a lot of things what to do, but I just cannot do it anymore. It's a lot easier to tell them what to do because they've still got the legs and hands to do it. I just know things, but I cannot do them anymore.
