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.

(The tribute) was great, brought back a lot of memories. I felt I wanted to give them the thank you they deserved. I understand the booing and it was expected. They are great fans.
