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.

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.

He’s Just Like You & Me, Except Between The Pipes

from Darren Eliot at Sports Illustrated,

With so many historic goaltending records about to fall this season, it seems appropriate to to consider Martin Brodeur’s brilliance.

Up close and in person, Brodeur looks like you or me—or maybe your uncle who works as, let’s say, a pipefitter. But after spending time during the offseason with a personal trainer, the burly Brodeur now appears to be more streamlined.

Rolston Injury Hurts Devils

from Mark Everson of the NY Post,

Hoping for the best, the Devils are more realistically bracing for the worst on Brian Rolston’s sprained right ankle.

“It depends how quickly he heals. It could be a few days, a few weeks, it could be a month. I don’t know,” coach Brent Sutter said yesterday about the Devils’ most expensive free-agent acquisition…

from Tom Gulitti of Fire & Ice,

Devils right wing Brian Rolston left tonight’s 1-0 victory over the Atlanta Thrashers with what he said was a high right ankle sprain.

Roslton left the building on crutches with a boot on his his right foot. I tried to ask Rolston twice if he had an X-ray on the ankle and both times was cut off by the Devils’ senior director of communications.
