Martin Brodeur (back) thinks he'll be ready to start on Thursday.
Johan Hedberg will get the nod on Tuesday, but Brodeur might serve as the backup in that contest. "If I'm on the bench it means I'm going to be okay to play," Brodeur said. "I might not be ready to start a game because my stamina is not there, but adrenalin takes over in those kind of situations. I'd be fine it happens. The coaches will make that decision. They might not want me to do it." Brodeur was able to take part in the Devils' practice on Monday.
