A bad game only gets made worse with a bad injury, and for the New Jersey Devils they went through this same dance just a week ago. During the Devils 3-1 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs in Toronto, Martin Brodeur left the game after two periods suffering another arm injury. Johan Hedberg took over for Brodeur to start the third period and allowed a goal to Kris Versteeg. Brodeur stopped 18 shots while he was in the game.
Afterward, Devils head coach John MacLean confirmed that Brodeur re-aggravated the same elbow injury he had two weeks ago. Brodeur missed two and a half games with the injury and the Devils went 1-1-1 in those games. While Brodeur’s injury doesn’t seem obvious (as is the case with a bad bruise), but it gives him trouble holding his goal stick. Brodeur is headed back to New Jersey instead of heading to St. Louis with the rest of the team to be examined. Johan Hedberg is going to have to hold things down in the meantime. A bad situation just gets uglier in New Jersey.
