Zubrus Out 4-6 Weeks

Dainius Zubrus suffered a hairline fracture of the patella (kneecap) on is right leg and will miss four to six weeks. Zubrus was injured when he blocked a shot from Nashville defenseman Kevin Klein 1:04 into the second period of Thursday night’s game. The force of the shot was so great that it broke Zubrus’ shin guard. This is a big loss for the Devils because you don’t easily replace a big physical center like Zubrus.
