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 team’s confidence and even more so for goalkeeper Kevin Weekes, who has been replacing the injured M. Brodeur in the Devils’ goal for the last four months. “The trainer put me in the role of a defensive forward against Tampa Bay’s best offence, this enabled us to create a number of important chances. I’m glad I contributed two goals and a pass to today’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.
