G Mike McKenna recalled from Albany
With Martin Brodeur hampered by a bruised knee, the Devils announced today they have recalled goaltender Mike McKenna from Albany (AHL).

Brodeur suffered the injury late in the first period of Sunday's win in Montreal. He finished the period with 11 saves, but did not return.

This is the third recall for McKenna, who is 0-1-0 with a 3.05 goals-against average and .893 save percentage in two appearances with New Jersey this season. The St. Louis native is 8-13-0 with a 3.84 goals-against average, .882 save percentage and one shutout in 22 appearances with Albany.

McKenna will likely back up Johan Hedberg for tonight's meeting with Carolina. He made 24 saves in a 3-2 loss at St. Louis on Nov. 20, and came on in relief of Hedberg with a 26-save effort against Montreal on Dec. 2.

McKenna was Hedberg's backup for seven games in November and December while Brodeur recovered from a right elbow injury.
