"The Devils placed goaltender Martin Brodeur on injured reserve today with a sore back retroactive to Sunday's game against Winnipeg, in which he sat on the bench as the backup.

Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello said that after examining Brodeur today, the doctor still does not think his back injury is anything serious, but he would not be ready to play Winnipeg, so it didn't make sense for him to get on the plane for the long flight there Wednesday."
