5. november 2008 / The Devils can rely on K. Weekes
Last night the Devils showed us that even with a weaker team and without M. Brodeur in goal they can play good hockey and win. The 4-3 victory over Tampa Bay, after penalty shootouts, was important for strengthening the entire teamâ€™s confidence and even more so for goalkeeper Kevin Weekes, who has been replacing the injured M. Brodeur in the Devilsâ€™ goal for the last four months. “The trainer put me in the role of a defensive forward against Tampa Bayâ€™s best offence, this enabled us to create a number of important chances. Iâ€™m glad I contributed two goals and a pass to todayâ€™s victory, which is very important for us all but especially so for Kevin Weekes, who showed that we can rely on him,” said a satisfied Patrik Elias after the match.
