Brodeur leaves with injury

NEWARK, N.J. -- Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur left Thursday night's game against the Los Angeles Kings with an apparent right shoulder injury.

The NHL's all-time leader in wins suffered the injury during a scramble that saw him dive to protect an open net. Brodeur's diving effort with about 12 minutes left in the first period was brilliant, but it clearly left him shaken.

Brodeur remained in the game and stopped 10 of 11 shots, but backup Johan Hedberg took over to start the second period. Brodeur was on the bench, however, smiling and laughing with teammates while Hedberg was in net.

Quote of the Day

That's a really tough thing to play through; when you finally are thrown out there, the game is fast, intense, every single play matters, you've got to find a way to play through that and make smart plays. So it's a huge testament to [Vermette] and some other individuals in our locker room that are putting their own ego, their own wants and needs aside, and are ready for those opportunities when they do come.

— Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews on teammate Antoine Vermette, who returned from being a healthy scratch in Game 3 to score the double-overtime winner in Game 4
