Practice Report: “Status Quo” and Line Changes

Lou Lamoriello has said that Martin Brodeur is “status quo” on recovering from the shoulder injury that happened against the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday. In the mean time, the Devils called up Keith Kinkaid from Albany. Kinkaid took Brodeur’s spot on the bench against the Predators on Saturday. You have to figure that if Brodeur is out of anymore time, Kinkaid is going to be their go to man to backup Johan Hedberg. Brodeur is going to see a doctor about his shoulder today.

Also, Peter DeBoer made some changes to the first line today by replacing Petr Sykora on the first line for Dainius Zubrus. Sykora centered on the third line with Mattias Tedenby and David Clarkson.

Adam Larsson returned to practice today after sitting out last practice with a sore foot that happened against the Kings.

Last season Jacques Lemaire thought that the Devils were out of shape so Peter DeBoer decided to give the team a hard skate at the end of practice since the team did not practice yesterday and does not have a game until Friday against the San Jose Sharks.
