Devils Without Madden

From Rich Chere at the Star-Ledger,

John Madden said it is very unlikely he will be in the lineup tonight at the Prudential Center because of the risk involved with the skate cut on his right ankle.

“It’s just in a bad spot,” Madden said yesterday after missing a second straight day of practice. “There would definitely be contact with my ankle. Where the cut is, it keeps rubbing. Who knows what could happen?”

If the cut is reopened and with sweat inside his skate boot, Madden’s ankle could become infected and he would be lost for a much longer period of time. That’s a risk the Devils would rather not take.

...and more on the race in the Atlantic Division.
