Hedberg starts tonight vs. Blues


 
Johan Hedberg will start tonight when the Devils host St. Louis at Prudential Center. Jaroslav Halak gets the nod for the Blues.

The Devils have recalled goaltender Jeff Frazee from Albany (AHL). He could serve as Hedberg's backup in the event that Martin Brodeur (ankle) is unavailable.

New Jersey (31-19-3) is looking to stretch its season-high winning streak to six games.

Tonight marks the return of Jamie Langenbrunner, who's back in New Jersey for the first time since he was traded to Dallas last January. He signed with St. Louis over the summer.

It will also be ex-Blue Cam Janssen's first appearance against his hometown team since signing with the Devils during the offseason.

David Clarkson did not skate in today's optional morning skate, but will play tonight. 

Today's projected lines:
Parise-Elias-Kovalchuk
Sykora-Zubrus-Clarkson
Ponikarovsky-Henrique-Bernier
Boulton-Josefson-Janssen

Greene-Fayne
Salvador-Volchenkov
Taormina-Foster
