Devils captain Langenbrunner out at least 2 games

Saturday, 04.18.2009 / 6:21 PM / 2009 Playoffs Conference Quarterfinals

Associated Press

New Jersey captain Jamie Langenbrunner will miss at least two games of the Devils' playoff series against the Carolina Hurricanes because of a lower body injury.

Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello said Saturday that Langenbrunner would miss Games 3 and 4 of the first-round series and that it was too early to tell whether the right winger would return for Game 5 back at home on Thursday, calling it "a day-by-day situation."

The teams split the first two games in New Jersey, and the series will continue on Sunday night. Game 4 is Tuesday

Lamoriello called Langenbrunner's injury a "freak event." The captain was hurt Friday night in the second period of the Devils' 2-1 overtime loss.

"We don't know exactly where it transpired, but he felt it at a certain point," Lamoriello said.

Quote of the Day

It's really exciting. I'm pretty sure that when I play my first game I'm going to be emotional. To be back on the ice playing a game, being in game situations, with all the routines and rituals I do before games and during the game, I feel like I'm going to be emotional. I'm going to be really happy.
