Martin Brodeur won't suit up Thursday and although coach Pete DeBoer said the veteran goalie is "feeling better," he isn't believed to be close to returning.
"He's feeling better but I wouldn't classify it as day to day," DeBoer said. "When I say day to day I mean he's not going to play on Thursday. I don't mean it's going to be a month. Sometime in between Thursday and a month. I don't have a timetable yet but it's heading in the right direction." Brodeur is still dealing with a back issue so Johan Hedberg, who hasn't looked good at all in his place, will continue to start for the Devils.
