07:03 PM ET 03.18 | New Jersey Devils netminder Martin Brodeur has been struggling with a back problem this season, but he fully expects to return to goal for the Devils this Thursday. According to New Jersey Online, Brodeur practiced on Monday with the team and is aiming to dress for the Devils game on Tuesday as Johan Hedberg's backup and then return to the net as the starter on Thursday. "I love to be part of these games. They're always fun. But it's not the first time I'm missing a Rangers game," Brodeur said. "Hopefully I'll feel good enough tomorrow to be watching it from the bench." The 40-year-old goalie has been sidelined since late February and practiced for the first time in three weeks today. The injury initially happened in practice on Feb. 24, and Brodeur tried to play in the Devils' following game against the Winnipeg Jets but determined after pregame warmups that he wouldn't be able to be effective in the net.

They'll need him for the end run, since he's not a 'Russki'

sign and sign....

i'm guessing they'll probably unload a bunch of other assets and ride the wave of youth for a few seasons. Luckily for them they scout well.

The Lone Ranger and Tonto are riding across the plains. Tonto hops off his horse, puts his ear to the ground and tells the Lone Ranger, "buffalo come". Lone Ranger asks Tonto how he knows this and Tonto answers, "ear sticky"!!!

Marty would have been back sooner but his sister-in-law (who makes $8000 a month on-line) had some spare time.
