CHICAGO (AP) - The New Jersey Devils say goalie Martin Brodeur bruised his right elbow in the second period against the Chicago Blackhawks and isn't likely to return.

X-rays taken Wednesday night were negative.

With New Jersey leading Chicago 2-0 at 5:27 of the second period, the stick of Chicago forward Troy Brouwer appeared to hit the area around Brodeur's blocker after he made a save on Patrick Kane.

Brodeur removed the blocker, shook his arm and rotated his wrist as the trainer attended to him.

Play then resumed, but Brodeur skated off the ice 21 seconds later following a stoppage in play. He was replaced by Johan Hedberg.
