Devils coach Brent Sutter said today that goaltender Martin Brodeur "won't play" in Saturday afternoon's preseaosn game against the Rangers at Madison Square Garden. He was kind of cryptic, however, when asked about which goalies would play.
Sutter said there was "a chance" Kevin Weekes would play. Weekes claimed not to know if he was playing.
Although Sutter said Thursday that rookie Jeff Frazee probably wouldn't play in any of the NHL preseason games, I have a hunch he'll dress against the Rangers after he played only a couple of minutes in today's scrimmage when Weekes was having his mask fixed.
No Brodeur today and Henrik is supposed to play the whole game. The Rangers better win this one. If they don't you know we will be hearing about for the next two weeks, until the two teams play for the first time when it counts.
I hope the Rangers go with a roster that will closely resemble the opening night roster. We pretty much know who will and won't be on the team so it is time to start building some chemistry.
