Martin Brodeur to miss at least one game because of elbow

NEWARK, N.J. - Devils goalie Martin Brodeur will miss at least one game with a bruised elbow, ending a career-high streak of 51 regular-season starts.

The team said Brodeur will not start Monday against the Buffalo Sabres after being injured Saturday in a 6-1 win over Atlanta. He was set to undergo an X-ray and MRI examination Sunday.

Brodeur's streak began Jan. 8 of last season. Goaltender Jeff Frazee, the Devils' second choice in 2005, has been called up from Trenton (ECHL) under emergency conditions to serve as backup to Kevin Weekes.

Brodeur made five saves before leaving Saturday's game 6:38 into the second period. He was relieved by Weekes, who posted 14 stops as Brodeur picked up career win No. 544. The four-time Vezina Trophy winner needs seven victories to tie Patrick Roy's career mark of 551.

The Devils also assigned Matt Halischuk to Lowell (AHL). Halischuk, New Jersey's fourth pick in 2007, was called up on Oct. 28 under emergency conditions and registered his first career point with an assist against Toronto on Oct. 29.
