NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -New Jersey defenseman Paul Martin and left wing Jay Pandolfo will be sidelined 4-to-6 weeks after being injured in the Devils' game against the Pittsburgh Penguins this past weekend.

The Devils said Monday that Martin, possibly their top defenseman, has broken left arm that will not require surgery. Pandolfo has a shoulder injury. The team would not say what specifically is wrong.

The team recalled defenseman Cory Murphy from Lowell of the AHL.

Martin leads the Devils in ice time, while Pandolfo is one of the top defensive forwards and a key penalty killer.

Devils forward Patrik Elias, who has not played this season because of groin surgery in mid September, is close to returning to practice.

Quote of the Day

I think everyone left it out there. Every game this season, regular season and playoffs, we played as hard as we could. We're not out of the playoffs right now because of lack of effort, and that's all that we can ask of each other.
