New Jersey Devils goalie Martin Brodeur will make his fifth start of the season Saturday against the Boston Bruins at TD Garden, coach Peter DeBoer said Friday.

It will be Brodeur's first start in four games. The future Hall of Famer has been the backup to Cory Schneider the past three games. Brodeur last played Oct. 17, when he allowed four goals on 22 shots in a 5-2 loss to the Ottawa Senators.

On the season Brodeur is 0-2-2 with a 3.40 goals-against average and .865 save percentage in four games.

Schneider had perhaps his worst outing since joining the Devils this season Thursday in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Vancouver Canucks. Schneider's giveaway off a dump-in in the first period led to a goal by Ryan Kesler and his misjudged bank attempt off the back boards in the second led to a goal by Daniel Sedin. Both gaffes came with the Devils trying to protect a one-goal lead. Schneider blamed himself for the loss.
