Brodeur Ready To Play

from North Jersey,
"Everything has to get going now," Brodeur said Thursday after practice at South Mountain Arena. "It's been a long time. The excuse about getting used to the rules, everything is out the window now. We're digging ourselves a hole and teams around us are winning. It's going to be tougher and tougher if we don't start being accountable for the way we play, the way we take penalties, the way our special teams work." Although Devils coach Larry Robinson said he would hold Brodeur out until Saturday afternoon's rematch with the Capitals at Continental Arena - and rookie Ari Ahonen was told to be ready to make his first NHL start today - Brodeur plans to play in both games of the home-and-home series after testing his knee during a strenuous practice Thursday. "I was doing everything I wanted," he said. "I made a point to make the third and fourth effort on shots just to see how everything is going to be. This was the first full practice where I had my own net and a lot of work. I was practicing a lot of things, so it was good. "I'm ready to go."
