During the New Jersey Devils three game win streak this past week, backup goalie Johan Hedberg went 3-0 with a .945 percent save percentage including two shootouts where he was a perfect 4-4.
Hedberg was called to duty in New Jersey's 2-1 shootout win over Los Angeles after Martin Brodeur left with a shoulder injury. Hedberg went 16-16 in relief of Brodeur and shut the door in overtime and sudden death.
So is Hedberg the answer in net? Head coach Pete DeBoer said earlier this month that he would need both goalies to perform at a high level during their nine games in October, but Hedberg has now appeared in three of the team's four games. Brodeur is battling his third injury in the past four years, and was outplayed by the Philadelphia Flyers in the season opener.
Brodeur is a future Hall of Famer who has earned his spot in this organization over the years. He has broken most of the NHL goaltending records and has won three Stanley Cups with the New Jersey Devils. But w...

Little has been said about a status update surrounding Devils goalie Martin Brodeur. He has already met with the team doctor, and Lou Lamoriello said that Brodeur was “status-quo.” Not exactly the most uplifting words to hear.

Johan Hedberg vs. Pekka Rinne
The way this game started, I really thought I was going to sit through another game like we played against the Flyers to open the season. Thankfully the Devils would end up clawing their way back into this game but we will get to that.
I thought the Devils came out with some jump and the Predators gave them an early power play but like a typical Devils power play, they weren’t...

The New Jersey Devils have four games under their belt and are off to an acceptable 3-1 start to their 2011-2012 NHL campaign. To the rest of the hockey world, it might be a little premature to start making a fuss of any kind over a team’s record at this point in the regular season. Considering how the Devils are looking to downplay running last year’s...
Surgery is not required, the Devils say, but Martin Brodeur will still miss another 7-10 days with the right shoulder injury he suffered last Thursday.
The decision was made after Brodeur received second opinions on the injury, suffered when landing on his right arm diving across the goalmouth to stop...

The Nashville Predators got the 2011-12 season off to a rockin’ start. In front of 100+ traveling Predators fans in Columbus and St. Louis, they charged to the front of the Central Division pack. It was hardly perfect hockey but hey, who cares? The Preds were 2-0-0 and were winning games against inferior opponents. Spirits were high in Smashville as the home opener was in a few...
