Martin Brodeur allowed two goals for the second straight game, and he was particularly irked about the first goal he allowed in Game 2 — one that was scored thanks to a rebound off the boards. “It’s a tough place to play,” he said of Madison Square Garden...

Report: Another Cup for Brodeur?

Martin Brodeur has done just about everything an NHL netminder could ever hope to do. He's the all-time leader in wins, shutouts and games played by a goalie on top of being the proud owner of three Stanley Cup titles. As careers go, they just don't get much better than this. On top of all that, Brodeur still has a chance to add to his storied career -- even at age 40....

Brodeur trying to get best of Lundqvist

Martin Brodeur has the numbers: NHL-record regular-season wins (656), and shutouts (119); second all time (to Patrick Roy) with 107 postseason triumphs, and three Stanley Cups for the New Jersey Devils.

Video: Brodeur's diving glove save

In the third period of tonight's Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals, Martin Brodeur looked like his vintage self with a great glove save on Rangers defenseman Marc Staal.  He had a wide-open net to shoot at, but Brodeur had other ideas.  His glove save kept the Devils in the game, down by just one at the time.  However, the Rangers went on to win 3-0 and claim a 1-0 series lead.

Rangers surge in 3rd period of Game 1

"I want to be a difference-maker," said Dan Girardi, the beaten Broadway fedora resting atop his head a few minutes after his slapshot from the point gave the New York Rangers a lead they would not relinquish. The home team went on to a 3-0 win over the New Jersey Devils in Game 1 of the Eastern...
