from Rich Chere of the Star/Ledger, Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur has not suffered a setback with his ailing back. “No. Absolutely not. In fact, the opposite,” general manager Lou Lamoriello said today. “No setback. That I can assure you.”  So why is Brodeur, who is on injured reserve, no longer listed as day to day? “It’s his back. You know backs. He was day to day and now the doctors feel he needs to rest a little more,” Lamoriello explained. “When will he come back? Will it be three days, four days, five days? It could be a week from now. We don’t know. He was day to day. It’s just taking a little longer. He just didn’t feel better.” continued
