Martin Brodeur intends on playing next season — and it sounds like he’s resigned to the fact that it likely won’t be for the only team he’s ever known.

The New Jersey Devils’ playoff push will have to come on home ice, as they return home this week to begin a five-game homestand at Prudential Center.
Martin Brodeur is again the New Jersey Devils’ No. 1 goaltender. Coach Pete DeBoer isn’t saying how long that will last, nor does he care.
