NHL.com @NHL
New Jersey Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur was forced to leave Sunday's game against the Montreal Canadiens with a bruise and did not return for precautionary reasons.

Brodeur suffered an apparent right knee injury after being struck by a shot from Canadiens defenseman Jaroslav Spacek with 5:52 left in the first period. He remained in the game for the rest of the period but was replaced by Johan Hedberg to start the second.

Brodeur, 38, has received less of a workload this season. In 37 games, the future Hall of Famer is 12-19-2 with a 2.76 goals-against average. He still picked up the win Sunday and improved to 8-1-1 in his last 10 starts.
