Martin Brodeur Expects To Play Friday After Elbow Injury

Martin Brodeur gave the New Jersey Devils a scare Wednesday when he had to leave a 5-3 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks with an elbow injury. Brodeur, however, does not expect to miss any time.

Brodeur has experienced this injury before.

"I just kind of got a stinger," he explained. "I never saw the shot from Kane. It kind of hit me, not in the funny bone but on the bone where all the nerves are connected.

"It (the pain) went away but when I grabbed my stick to make a play behind the net, I didn’t have any strength to hold the stick."

Can he play Friday night?

"From past experience it takes me a couple of days to feel 100 percent," Brodeur said. "We’ll see how this reacts. I’m pretty sure (he can play against the Rangers)."

Finally, some good news for the 4-9-1 Devils. A victory over the defending Stanley Cup champions and an injury that won't have long-term ramifications. New Jersey has had plenty of those. The last thing they need as they try to dig out of the early-season hole they have created is to be without their future Hall of Fame goalkeeper for an extended period of time.

Devils Get A Win After Brodeur Injured Halfway Through

Chicago, IL (Sports Network) – Jamie Langenbrunner registered a goal and two assists, and the New Jersey Devils overcame an injury to goaltender Martin Brodeur to beat the Chicago Blackhawks, 5-3, at United Center.

Travis Zajac had a goal and one assist for the Devils, who finished 2-4-0 on their six-game road trip.

Brodeur stopped all eight shots he faced before leaving in the second period with a bruised right elbow. Johan Hedberg made 21 saves in relief.

Viktor Stalberg finished with a goal and two helpers for Chicago, which has dropped five of its last seven games. Marty Turco stopped 19 shots in defeat.


Devils' Goalie Martin Brodeur Injured

As if the New Jersey Devils don’t already have enough problems, goalkeeper Martin Brodeur left tonight’s game against Chicago early with an elbow injury.

Despite taking a 2-0 lead at the United Center against the defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks on Wednesday night, the struggling Devils lost starting goalie Martin Brodeur with a what the team called a bruised right elbow.

The Devils said x-rays were negative but that he’s not likely to return.

Play was stopped at 5:27 of the second period for Devils athletic trainers to take a look at Brodeur’s right arm after he stopped Patrick Kane’s blast from the lower left circle just below the numbers on his sleeve. Brodeur, playing in his sixth straight game, tried to continue but left the net at the next whistle, 21 seconds later, and headed for the locker room. He was replaced by backup Johan Hedberg.
