Vinny Prospal of the New York Rangers will be out for at least the next 10 days, and it could be up to three weeks. New York’s second-leading scorer will be recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery that he had on Monday morning.

Prospal suffered from a torn lateral meniscus, which was cared for by Anthony Maddalo, the team doctor. He was injured on during Saturday night’s game when the Rangers’ lost in overtime to the New York Islanders at Madison Square Garden. Despite the injury, he played for 22 minutes in Saturday’s game.

The 34-year-old Czech was still feeling sore on Sunday afternoon so he did not participate in Sunday’s practice, and was sent for medical examination. The surgery could effect his chances of becoming a member of the Czech Olympic team.

Prospal signed a one-year contract with the Rangers this year. He has 8 goals, 32 points and 24 assists in 38 games this season. His assists are the 19th best in the NHL. He has played either on left wing or center with Marian Gaborik at his side.

The injury comes at one of the busiest times in the Rangers’ schedule. In the next 33 days they will play 18 games. 12 of those games will occur over the next three weeks. The New York Rangers’ next game is Thursday night at Carolina.

The New York Jets have a possible opportunity at a playoff berth this season. In the past decade, the Jets (8-7_ have had 6 chances at a playoff berth going into the final game of the regular season. Whether it was by their own doing, or because of other results, the Jets were able to convert on 4 out of 6 of these occasions.

On Sunday night, when the Jets have their final game of the regular season and host Cincinnati, they will have an opportunity to make that 5 out of 7 times. If they Jets win this game they are in the playoffs, but if they lose they are out. Sunday night’s game will be the football finale at Giants Stadium.

If they Jets beat the Cincinnati Bengals, that would secure the number 6 seed in the AFC for the New York jets. The Bengals don not have much to worry about on Sunday. They are definitely in the playoffs, but only their seed, number 3 or 4, is up for grabs. Either way, they are in the playoffs. However, the Jets are not concerned about this. All they are concerned about is a chance to be in that Superbowl tournament!

The New York Giants said goodbye to Giants Stadium after 283 games on Sunday, and it seemed as though the team saved their worst performance for their last. They lost 41-9 to the Carolina Panthers in one of the team’s most embarrassing performances. The Giants failed miserably in a must-win game to even have a chance at saving their season.

The Giants were interested in putting on a show for their loyal fans, but instead they gave them a reason to leave early. The Giants did not score any points in the 1st half for the 2nd time in the last 5 games. New York was killed by the Panthers who scored 3 touchdowns in the second quarter which gave them a halftime lead of 24-0. In fact, the score was 31-0 before the Giants even scored.

Knowing that the Giants have never overcome a 10 point deficit this season, they knew the game was basically over. The Giants played an embarrassing game, and with 2 interceptions, and 2 fumbles, the team made 4 turnovers. They had a mere 6 carries, and only 60 rushing yards.

After 34 years at Giants Stadium, the Giants ended their 2009 season, and said goodbye to their current stadium.  The Giants will move into their new $1.7 billion stadium in 2010.

New Jersey Devils goaltender, Martin Brodeur broke the NHL record with his 104th career shutout. It came pretty easily against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Monday night as the Devils beat last year’s Stanley Cup Champions 4-0. The Devils, 13-2-1 away from home, (a league best) used an effective team effort to deny the Penguins of any net action at Mellon Arena on Monday night.

The shutout record is just the latest in a series of milestones for Martin Brodeur. On March 17 against Chicago, Brodeur passed Patrick Roy’s regular-season victories record with his 552nd win. On November 27 in Boston, Brodeur became the record career minutes holder with 60,235 career minutes. Now, only 2 days after breaking another on of Patrick Roy’s record for regular season appearances by a goaltender in his 1,032 career game, Brodeur was successful in surpassing the career shutouts record.

The Penguins gave the Devils little trouble on Monday as the 37-year-old goalie made just 35 saves to break legendary Terry Sawchuck’s shutout record. Terry Sawchuk held the record alone for 45 years up until 2 weeks ago when Brodeur matched it.

Next, the New Jersey Devils will play the Atlanta Thrashers on Monday, December 28. Don’t miss the all-time winningest goalie perform live and in person for yourself.

Martin Brodeur collected his 103rd shutout on Monday night against the Buffalo Sabres. This 3-0 victory over Buffalo lead to Brodeur tying Hall Of Famer, Terry Sawchuk’s, NHL shutout record.

The Olympic gold medallist and Stanley Cup Champion earned his first shutout in 1993, and Brodeur says that they now come about every 10 games. This was Brodeurs second shutout of the season, and the Sabres made it easy for him during Monday’s game as Brodeur only had to make 22 saves.

Brodeur will have the chance to surpass this legendary record on Wednesday night at the Prudential center when the New jersey Devils host the Carolina Hurricanes. However, Bordeur says he never expects to stop another team completely, and he never plans for shutouts.

A shutout on Wednesday night will put him at 104 shutouts total, and will give Brodeur sole possession of the 45-year old record. But for a successful shutout a few things must occur. The defense has to stay focused, the offense has to take the lead, and Brodeur needs to stop everything.
