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.

I feel that responsibility, I've felt it for the last two years. We core guys get a lot of minutes, we get a lot of opportunity out there. Our teammates, the organization and fans look to us to be the guys to put the puck in the net and to create momentum out there.
