News and notes from around the crease…

Devils go back to Brodeur

Martin Brodeur will make his second consecutive start on Tuesday night when the Devils host the Bruins.

Brodeur allowed three goals on 32 shots in a 3-0 loss to Tampa Bay on Saturday, but has been very good over his last five outings, going 4-1-0 with a .913 save percentage. It’s interesting to see Devils head coach Peter DeBoer go with the veteran Brodeur over Cory Schneider in this game, though, as New Jersey is clinging to its playoff hopes and desperate for a win to snap its two-game losing skid.

No word yet on who Boston will start in goal. Tuukka Rask stopped 33 of 34 shots faced in last night’s 4-1 win over the Wild.

Raanta goes vs. Philly

With tomorrow’s big Central Division rivalry game against St. Louis looming, Chicago is resting Corey Crawford and starting Antti Raanta tonight against the Flyers.

Raanta has been good this season but his opportunities have been limited — he hasn’t played since stopping 26 of 29 shots in a 3-2 loss to another Central rival, Colorado, last Wednesday.

For the Flyers, Ray Emery will get the start in goal, giving him a shot to go up against his former Blackhawk mates. It’ll be Emery’s first game action since Feb. 27.

Elsewhere…

Wild at Islanders: Ilya Bryzgalov vs. Anders Nilsson

Stars at Penguins: Jeff Zatkoff for Pittsburgh, Kari Lehtonen likely for Dallas.

Hurricanes at Jackets: Sergei Bobrovsky for Columbus, Anton Khudobin likely for Carolina.

Leafs at Red Wings: James Reimer vs. Jimmy Howard

Rangers at Sens: Henrik Lundqvist vs. Robin Lehner

Avs at Habs: J.S. Giguere vs. Carey Price

Sabres at Flames: Nathan Lieuwen vs. Joni Ortio

Preds at Oilers: Pekka Rinne vs. Viktor Fasth

Capitals at Ducks: Jaroslav Halak vs. Jonas Hiller

Panthers at Sharks: Antti Niemi for San Jose, Roberto Luongo probable for Panthers.

    I’m surprised to see Jeff Zatkoff in net tonight, the Penguins play back to back games this weekend, so you would think Zatkoff would get one game over the weekend. Fleury after he has been pulled has incredible numbers.
