Brodeur leaves with injury
Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur left Thursday night's game against the Los Angeles Kings with an apparent right shoulder 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

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.
