Brodeur ruled out for Monday after injuring elbow

Sunday, 11.02.2008 / 3:57 PM / Brodeur Watch
Martin Brodeur will not start Monday against the Sabres after suffering a bruised elbow in Saturday's 6-1 win over Atlanta.

Brodeur was set to undergo an X-ray and MRI Sunday, and will see his streak of consecutive regular-season starts end at a career-high 51 games dating back to Jan. 8 of last season. Goaltender Jeff Frazee, the Devils' second choice in 2005, has been called up from Trenton (ECHL) under emergency conditions.

Brodeur made five saves before leaving Saturday's game 6:38 into the second period. He was relieved by Kevin Weekes who posted 14 stops as Brodeur picked up career win No. 544. The four-time Vezina Trophy winner needs seven victories to tie Patrick Roy's all-time mark of 551, and sits 22 appearances shy of 1,000 games played.

For our team, as a group, we've never been this far before, and so it's just more lessons learned, and sometimes you have to go to the school of hard knocks to find out what works and what doesn't. We've got a young group. They've played some unreal hockey here to get us this far, and we showed if we're not going to play the proper way, a really, really good hockey team is going to beat you, and that's what they did. It's a lesson learned.
