NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - Martin Brodeur said Tuesday that he is healthy and ready to return. When he actually does, though, is still to be determined.
The Devils goaltender, who suffered a bruised shoulder three weeks ago, could be between the pipes Wednesday when New Jersey faces the Toronto Maple Leafs.
"I felt real good today and if they need me tomorrow, I'll be ready," Brodeur said. "It's the hardest I've gone as far as reaction and competing and I was fine."
Devils coach Pete DeBoer would not predict whether Brodeur, 39, would get the start or would he continue to lean on reserve Johan Hedberg for a seventh straight game.
