Brodeur Undergoing Tests Today

from Rich Chere of the Star-Ledger,

Kevin Weekes, who will start in goal against the Sabres, said the torn tendon in his catching arm that required surgery in the offseason was originally diagnosed as a bruised elbow.

“We talked (Saturday) night a couple of times. We texted back and forth,” Weekes said. “He’s a little bit unsure as to what his status is. We kind of bounced some things off each other. He was nice enough to text me. I appreciated that. I texted him back and gave him what information I had.”

Brodeur described to Weekes what he was feeling. He apparently hurt the elbow reaching for a shot during the second period and felt more pain when he made another move.

Brodeur Has Some Kind Of Elbow Injury

from Tom Gulitti of Fire & Ice,

Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello insisted that Martin Brodeur suffered only a bruised left elbow when he left tonight’s 6-1 win over the Atlanta Thrashers.

“It’s just a bruised elbow,” Lamoriello maintained. “It’s just a bruise.”

Lamoriello would not answer when I asked if Brodeur underwent an MRI or any other tests after he was injured.

Devils coach Brent Sutter also had no answer for how long Brodeur will be out or if he will be able to play Monday.

“I don’t know,” Sutter said. “You’re asking me something that I’m not sure of and I’m not trying to be disrespectful at all because I just don’t know what to tell you. I don’t know any more than you guys know that’s been mentioned here. So, I don’t know right now. I guess we’ll see where Marty is at tomorrow and see how it goes.”

What Could Have Happened

from Mark Everson of the NY Post,

In the middle of the second period Oct. 22, with the Devils leading 1-0, Brodeur cleared the puck past an on-charging Dallas winger - Brodeur’s nemesis, Sean Avery.

“I saw somebody,” Brodeur told The Post. “It’s hard to know who it is when you’re playing the puck.

“I got the puck by him, saw it was him, and said, ‘[Rats], I should have hit him.’ “

A possible brawl was averted, but only by the slimmest of margins.

Get On The Bike Boys

from Tom Gulitti of Fire & Ice,

The Devils earned their first post-game stationary bike ride of the season with tonight’s 6-5 shootout loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Niklas Hagman scored the deciding goal in the shootout, but the damage had been done in regulation, in which the Devils gave up a season-high 48 shots and three power-play goals in blowing leads of 2-0 and 4-3.

So, after briefly speaking with the media after the game, the players had to do a 15-minute ride on the stationary bicycle.

“A lot of players in there have to play better than they have the past three games,” Devils coach Brent Sutter said afer his team’s third consecutive loss. “That’s just basics, getting back to what they’re supposed to do. Certain guys have certain roles and they’re getting away from our game plan and what each individual has to do. Saturday (home game against Atlanta) can’t get here quick enough.”

Friday Night Injury Report

from Tom Gulitti of Fire & Ice,

Devils captain Jamie Langenbrunner suffered an undisclosed injury and the Flyers defeated the Devils 5-3 tonight at Prudential Center.

Langenbrunner headed to the Devils’ locker room with the trainer after taking a hard hit from Flyers defenseman Luca Sbisa along the right wing boards in the Philadelphia zone 7:55 into the second period. It appeared Langenbrunner had a left leg injury, but it was difficult to tell.

more on the game…

via Steve Zipay of Blue Notes,

With 11:38 left in the second period, Rangers coach Tom Renney was clipped on the left side of the head by Rostislav Klesla’s stick during a scrum at the bench.

He went down to the floor, an official said between the second and third period, may have lost consciousness, was assisted off the ice and was being X-rayed. Assistants Mike Pelino and Perry Pearn took over. Renney did not return before the end of the period.

A Rangers spokesman said during the intermission that Renney “was OK. He was hit on the top of the head.”

added 10:11pm, from Norm Sanders of the New-Democrat,

St. Louis Blues goaltender Manny Legace suffered what the team called a lower-body injury Friday and did not return for the second period against the Los Angeles Kings.

Legace may have been injured when he slipped on a piece of carpeting coming out for pregame warmups. The carpet was on the ice for a pregame ceremony involving Republic vice-presidential nominee Gov. Sarah Palin.

Those Classy Devils

from Empty Netters,

...a Penguins fan who was hit by a puck during the team’s home opener wrote in to give us an update on his health.

I was the guy that was hit with the puck in A 27 Row B at the 3:28 mark of the first period. Just to be clear, I WAS paying attention. Have you ever sat down that low? You can’t see a damn thing…

After receiving medical attention for my bleeding head, I returned to the game for the second period. In a very classy move by the Devils, one of their trainers handed me a Reebok Devils hat, signed by all of the scratched players that evening.
