Martin Brodeur is back in the Stanley Cup finals at age 40. After the New Jersey Devils missed the playoffs last season for the first time since 1996, the veteran goalie was under the microscope. But on Friday night, Brodeur made 33 saves to help the Devils defeat the rival New York Rangers 3-2 in overtime in Game 6 to advance to the Stanley Cup finals against the Los Angeles Kings. Game 1 will be Wednesday in New Jersey. This will be Brodeur's fifth trip to the finals, and he already owns three championship rings. The last trip and ring came in 2003, when New Jersey beat Anaheim in seven games with Brodeur posting a shutout in the clincher.
