BREAKING NEWS: Devils Place Martin Brodeur On IR

Martin Brodeur was scheduled to see a doctor Tuesday before the Devils decided how to proceed with his injury. Well, it appears they’ve made a decision:

This means Brodeur will miss at least two games (Thursday and Saturday), three if you include Sunday’s late scratch. Should we worry that all the miles have finally caught up to Marty or are the Devils just being cautious with their 40-year-old netminder? Maybe a little of both. Outside of Ilya Kovalchuk, Brodeur is the most indispensable player on the roster and you could argue he’s more important than Kovy. Expect Johan Hedberg to start one if not both of the games Brodeur has missed with Keith Kincaid Kinkaid being added to the active roster as a backup. We’ll have more on this later, but I wanted to get the news up for now.
