DeBoer said prior to Thursday's game that he was leaning toward starting Hedberg as long as Martin Brodeur was on IR, which could end Monday in Toronto. Although I wasn't as optimistic as DeBoer about Hedberg's play in his first three losses, I thought he played well enough last night for the Devils to win. He made some good saves -- some difficult saves -- and generally kept his head about him except for an overly aggressive play on the second goal. I think it's pretty clear DeBoer doesn't want to start Keith Kinkaid with the Devils in serious need of a win. Even if Marty can't play Monday, he'd had to miss Tuesday's game as well for Kinkaid to likely even get a look. As for Hedberg, the key tomorrow will be not allowing the Sabres' top line to beat them. Buffalo's won two straight and could be gaining some momentum under new coach Ron Rolston, but they're still a one-line team. If Hedberg (and the players in front 0f him) can keep a lid on that Vanek-Hodgson-Pominville line, the Devils will have a good chance to win.
