Brodeur’s wonky shoulder has kept him out of action since October 13 against the Kings when he left that start after a period. While coach Peter De Boer hasn’t said Brodeur gets the nod yet tonight, according to Gulitti, Brodeur went through practice doing everything that the starting goalie would do on a game day skate.
Brodeur getting to face a Leafs team that’s got the league’s leading scorer in Phil Kessel gives him a warm welcome back to action. Expect the Leafs to be buzzing tonight. While Brodeur has been out, Johan Hedberg has played great in his spot. If Brodeur struggles at all tonight or has a relapse, Hedberg will be there to buoy the ship. The league’s oldest goalie tandem has the chance to be both brittle and great all the same.
While Brodeur isn’t the same guy who has dominated in the past, he’s certainly capable of being the top guy just the same. The Leafs will put him to the test tonight.
