Martin Brodeur was scheduled to see a doctor Tuesday before the Devils decided how to proceed with his injury. Well, it appears they've made a decision:

This means Brodeur will miss at least two games (Thursday and Saturday), three if you include Sunday's late scratch. Should we worry that all the miles have finally caught up to Marty or are the Devils just being cautious with their 40-year-old netminder? Maybe a little of both. Outside of Ilya Kovalchuk, Brodeur is the most indispensable player on the roster and you could argue he's more important than Kovy. Expect Johan Hedberg to start one if not both of the games Brodeur has missed with Keith Kincaid Kinkaid being added to the active roster as a backup. We'll have more on this later, but I wanted to get the news up for now.

On the conference call to announce the acquisition of Alexei Ponikarovsky, the Devils also announced that Dainius Zubrus will have exploratory wrist surgery and could miss anywhere from two to eight weeks.

Earlier today, the Devils placed Zubrus on injured reserve and said they would know more about him in the next 48 hours. I speculated the injury to Zubrus would cause the Devils to do some roster shuffling, which they certainly have done today with the Ponikarovsky trade, calling up Andrei Loktionov and eventually sending a player down to Albany to make room for Ponikarovsky.
