New Jersey Devils goalie Martin Brodeur, 33, says his two favorite places to play are in Philadelphia and New York.
Two nights ago, in the Devils first pre-season match-up of the season in Philadelphia, Brodeur didn't make the start.
He'll make up for that this time around, tonight at Madison Square Garden.
The Devils will face-off against the New York Rangers tonight in the Big Apple, after Jersey's Team lost its preseason opener in Philly in overtime on Tuesday night.
Along with Brodeur, the much-anticipated line of Zach Parise, Travis Zajac and Ilya Kovalchuk will also play, according to first year Devils head coach John MacLean.
In the off-season, the Devils moved Kovalchuk from left wing to right wing, setting up what is arguably the most dominant line in the NHL.
"It's a little different," Kovalchuk, who was in the middle of contraversy all season with the resigning of his contract, said, "But like I said, we're always switching. On face-offs I might line up on the left side and Zach [Parise] on the right."
Although these games don't matter, it sure would be nice for the Devils to earn the first preseason win against the boys from across the Hudson River.
I'm sure Brodeur won't mind if a man named Sean Avery tries to step in his crease--although his defensemen might.
