Martin Brodeur is one of the greatest goaltenders in the history of the NHL. A fun fact about the New Jersey goalie is that going going into Thursday night he had two career goals.
At 3:54 of the first period in Raleigh on Thursday, Brodeur scored his third career goal. After a delayed Devils penalty, Hurricanes forward Jordan Staal made an errant pass to the point which deflected off the half-wall and went directly into the Carolina net.
Brodeur is no stranger to scoring goals, either. In the 1997 playoffs he sent a puck the length of the ice into an empty net against Montreal. Brodeur then scored another three years later against the Philadelphia Flyers.
