New Jersey goalie Martin Brodeur
told The (Bergen) Record that his injured right shoulder feels better, but not good enough for him to play tonight against the Predators.
"From the day I hurt it to the next day to today, it's going the right way," he said this morning at Bridgestone Arena, where he received treatment on the shoulder. "I'm really happy about the way it feels. It's just there’s no sense for me to rush to try to get in. I probably won't practice tomorrow, either. Take another day and we’ll go from there. But it feels really, really good. I'm happy about the way it's going."
With Brodeur out, Johan Hedberg
will start, with Keith Kinkaid
called up from AHL Albany to serve as the backup.
Here's what the rest of the Devils' lineup likely will look like tonight:
- Patrik Elias
- Petr Sykora
- Jacob Josefson
- Nick Palmieri
- Dainius Zubrus
- David Clarkson
- Brad Mills
- Cam Janssen
- Adam Larsson
- Mark Fayne
- Anton Volchenkov
