Major League Baseball makes off-day changes in middle of LCS

There had been a lot of talk during the off-season that Major League Baseball would make changes in the off days in the postseason.

The awkward off-day between Games 4 and 5 of the league championship series, will be eliminated. Instead, there will be another off-day between the division series and the start of the LCS. That’s the word from the commissioner’s office on Wednesday.

The overall length of the postseason will not be shortened and the first round will remain a best-of-five at least through 2011.

Without any rainouts, this year’s switch will make it more difficult for any team to get through the best-of -seven LCS with only three starting pitchers, as the defending world champion New York Yankees did in 2009.

The off-day was among the four baseball added for the Fox network who wanted the World Series to open on a Wednesday rather than a Saturday, usually the lowest-rated night of the week.

This year’s division series starts October 6, and the National League team with the best record will likely be the one that decides whether it wants the eight-day division series. The American League Championship Series starts October 15, with the National League Championship Series beginning the following day. The World Series opens on Wednesday, October 27, and Game 7 would be scheduled for November 3, the second straight year it could extend past Halloween.

New Jersey power play and Martin Brodeur too much for the CBJ

compiled by the staff

Martin Brodeur, goaltender for the New Jersey Devils, seems to be setting records and breaking records every game he plays. He’s also making it difficult for his own records to be broken in the years to come.

Brodeur made 19 saves Tuesday night in New Jersey’s 6-3 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets. The victory gave him a 40-win season for thee eighth time. No other National Hockey League goalies have had more than three seasons.

His next milestone that he is after, 600 wins. The NHL career leader in victories is only three away from that mark. Earlier in the year, Brodeur supassed Terry Sawchuk as the league’s shutout king. Broduer has 108 shutouts.

The Devils gave Brodeur plenty of offense against Columbus as their mostly-dormant power play woke up and produced their first three goals. Travis Zajac and Zach Parise each scored twice and Ilya Kovalchuk had a goal and three assists in helping the Devils jump over Pittsburgh and into first place in the Atlantic Division. New Jersey and Pittsburgh both have 90 points, but New Jersey have won one more win than the Penguins and have played one fewer game.


* It was a showdown between Martin Brodeur and Steve Mason, who grew up idolizing the Devils goaltender.

* A pair of Devils defensemen reached games played milestones: Bryce Salvador 600 and Andy Greene 200.

* Columbus became the last team to visit the Prudential Center.

* The Devils are 6-2-2 vs. the Blue Jackets.
