In the latest edition of his weekly column, Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur confirms that his goal is to return from his torn biceps tendon in the team's Feb. 26 home game against the Colorado Avalanche.
In the column, which has shifted to www.ruefrontenac.com from Le Journal because Brodeur is supporting the writers in a work stoppage at the Montreal newspaper, Brodeur writes under the headline, "I aim to return February 26", that he anticipates playing against the Avalanche, "if all is well."

I first reported earlier this month that Feb. 26 was the target for Brodeur's return.
In case you missed it earlier, practice is not until 4:30 p.m. today in Tampa Bay. I will post an update when it begins.
