Team Canada was doing great coming off a huge 5-0 victory against the Slovaks but the win may be costlyTeam Canada was doing great coming off a huge 5-0 victory against the Slovaks but the win may be costly.
Martin Brodeur of Team Canada and probably their MVP is hurt with a wrist injury. It occured with harmelessly with a dump in from center ice in the last three minutes of the 3rd period. He woke the next day with wrist pains and had to leave practice early with bandages over his wrist.
Brodeur commented by saying that he could play through the pain but if he feels he can’t play to the top of his level he will step aside for Roberto Luongo who Gretzky has chosen to start if Brodeur won’t be avaible.
