Brodeur also told reporters that he woke up "feeling fine" and is "100 percent." He is ready to start any time, he added.
Johan Hedberg will start again for the last time in probably a little while.
As we said yesterday, Brodeur will back up Hedberg tonight only because of conditioning reasons. Monday was Brodeur's first practice with the team since a pinched nerve kept him on the sidelines for weeks. Now, if Moose suddenly gets shelled by the Rangers in the first period, I wouldn't be shocked in the least if Marty ends up entering the game for him. First off, Hedberg has gotta be exhausted, but, more importantly, Brodeur would probably feed off the energy of the crowd and adrenaline to help him get through any rust factor. Don't go expecting a sudden change at the last minute, but don't be surprised if Marty finds his way into tonight's game at some point.
