BOSTON, M.A. (CBSNewYork) – The Devils will be without starting goaltender Cory Schneider when they face-off against the Boston Bruins on Saturday night at TD Garden. According to the Devils, Schneider is bothered by a lower body injury.

41-year-old veteran Martin Brodeur is set to start against the Bruins. The Devils announced on Saturday that they used a roster exemption to call up goaltender Keith Kinkaid from Albany of the AHL. Schneider did not travel with the team to Boston.

Brodeur is 0-2-2 with a 3.40 GAA and .865 save percentage through four games played in 2013-14. The legendary goaltender admitted that he’s no longer the Devils’ number one netminder on Wednesday.

For now, it will be up to Brodeur to man the pipes until Schneider is able to return. The Devils are yet to make any decision on whether Schneider will be placed on the injured reserve.
