Devils veteran goaltender Brodeur nursing a sore back; New Jersey C Josefson returning to AHL

NEWARK, N.J. - New Jersey Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur is being listed as day to day after tests were performed on his sore back Monday.

Brodeur, 40, has missed the past two games for the Devils while dealing with a tweak that he's been feeling for a few weeks now. Backup Johan Hedberg started and lost both of those games for the defending Eastern Conference champions.

Brodeur last played last Thursday, finishing with 17 saves in New Jersey's 3-2 win at Washington. He is 8-2-3 with a 2.27 goals-against average this season.

The Devils also returned centre Jacob Josefson to Albany of the AHL.

New Jersey returns to action Thursday in Winnipeg.

Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
