    Are the bricks an odd size? If they are a standard size just clean the stove out really well w/ a shop vac and take a pic of how they are arranged to help putting the new ones in.

    If you can't get whatever size is in there, just have yourself a masonry blade on hand in a circ saw (I use an old one) and they cut pretty easily.

    If you take your time w/ a stone chisel, they don't split too badly either.

    If using a saw to cut you can soak the bricks for 1/2 hr or so in water. When you cut there won't be any dust and the blade won't overheat.

    One or two you can hammer and chisel. More than that, I use an air chisel or hammer drill. The exhaust from the air chisel really stirs up the dust / ash packed between them. Next time I'll wet it down, and remove the mud. Anything beats the taste of brick mouth.
