Practice Report: Brodeur To Start Tonight, Parise Moves Again

Martin Brodeur is going to start tonight for the Devils at home against the Toronto Maple Leafs. Brodeur is coming off a shoulder injury that has kept him out since October 13th. Brodeur made the trip out west last week in hopes of coming back but was still not feeling well enough to dress. It should be interesting to see how Brodeur plays against the Leafs who are one of the hotter teams in the NHL.

Zach Parise is no longer center on the top line. He is moving back to left wing. Adam Henrique will be centering. Kovalchuk will be playing right wing.

Lines during practice were:
Parise-Henrique-Kovalchuk
Sykora-Elias-Zubrus
Tedenby-Carter-Clarkson
Janssen-Mills-Palmieri

There were no changes to the defensive pairings. The scratches for tonight’s game are Rod Pelley, Eric Boulton and Mark Fraser.
