Hedberg going strong for Devils
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The New Jersey Devils have gotten great efforts from Martin Brodeur's backup, Johan Hedberg, who has gone 4-1-1 with a 1.86 goals-against average and has kept New Jersey rolling early in the season.

Brodeur missed his fourth straight full game Tuesday night with a bruised right shoulder and isn't likely to play on the final two games of the current road trip. He is with the team, skating and working on as much of his game as he can, including shot work.

Ryan Carter, claimed off waivers from the Panthers earlier this week, makes his New Jersey debut centering the fourth line. Rod Pelley will be a healthy scratch.

Center Jacob Josefson will miss 3-4 months after undergoing surgery to repair a broken right clavicle.

Left wing Eric Boulton had an MRI on the right hand he injured punching Douglas Murray in the head and was again out of the lineup Tuesday night. "The MRI was good," he said. "There is some soft tissue damage I still have to have some treatment on. I should be day-to-day."

The update on center Travis Zajac is that he's likely out until after Christmas as he rehabs the torn left Achilles tendon he suffered in offseason skating.
Quote of the Day

I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
