New Jersey Devils
New Jersey goalie Martin Brodeur didn’t return for the second period of the Devils’ game against the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday because of upper-body soreness.
To a man, the New Jersey Devils do not believe that they are as poor as their 4-10-2 record indicates. The frustration reached a boiling point Wednesday night, when $100 million player Ilya Kovalchuk fanned on a shot in the shootout, forcing the Devils to remain winless at home with a 5-4 loss to the Buffalo Sabres.
Patrik Elias scored the tiebreaking goal early in the third period, Martin Brodeur made 27 saves and the New Jersey Devils snapped a three-game skid with a 2-1 victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Friday night.
