EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- New Jersey Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur has a sprained knee but is not expected to miss an extended period of time.

The two-time Vezina Trophy winner was injured Wednesday night in New Jersey's 6-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning. He left the game with 6:50 remaining in the third period after catching his right leg on the post and falling to the ice. Scott Clemmensen replaced Brodeur in goal.

An MRI showed no damage to the knee, Devils president Lou Lamoriello said Thursday, and Brodeur's status is day-to-day.

The team recalled goaltender Ari Ahonen from Albany on Thursday.
