Puck Drunk Love:
When Martin Brodeur lost his stick during the New Jersey / Pittsburgh game on Saturday afternoon, no one could have guessed the hilarity we'd be in for. After declining a stick from his defenseman, Brodeur made a couple more saves without his stick before the Devils were finally able to clear the zone. Brodeur went to the corner to retrieve his stick while the Penguins hurriedly played the puck back in on New Jersey's net. The result is the hilarious GIF you see above. Brodeur made it to his crease as the puck hit the post. Then, as the puck deflected off of his foot, Brodeur tried to nimbly avoid kicking the puck into his own net by doing a rather acrobatic spin. The whole series was capped off by Brodeur tumbling to the ice. As it turns out, all of this effort was for naught. The play was offsides. (H/T to Reddit Hockey) [follow]

Home and homes are like torture.
If we wanted to spend this much time with people who live in New Jersey, we'd just kill ourselves and go to the laundromat in hell.
Alas, hockey makes us see terrible things sometimes.
At least we're getting it out of the way.
Hope you are out of the snow and in your pajamas this Saturday afternoon.
BEST HANGOVER CURE

They came into the season as the most disrespected Stanley Cup finalist in modern NHL history.
Nobody, but nobody looked at the New Jersey Devils when the NHL and union finally worked out their differences and imagined they would be a serious Stanley Cup contender.
No matter that the Devils were the class of the Eastern Conference last season...
