It would be the storybook finish. Martin Brodeur, arguably the greatest goalie of all time, going out on top with a fourth Stanley Cup hoisted high above his head. It worked for future hall of famer Mark Recchi last year and Ray Bourque more than a decade ago.

So with Brodeur four wins away from a chance to skate off into the sunset as a champion once more, it's easy to think the 40-year-old netminder could...

Devils know they can lean on Brodeur

Always one to keep things in proper perspective, Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur quickly dismissed any suggestion Friday night that New Jersey's Eastern Conference Final win over the New York Rangers somehow served as retribution for the events of 1994. It was during the conference final that year that the Devils, with a 22-year-old Brodeur in net, choked away a 3-2 series...

Kings In The Spotlight

from Lisa Dillman of the LA Times, At this stage, the inner child comes out in nearly every hockey player and coach. New Jersey Devils icon Martin Brodeur sounded like an excited teenager, not a seen-it-all 40-year-old goaltender Tuesday at media day for the Stanley Cup Final before their series against the Kings. You might have thought it was his first Final, not his fifth. Less...

Jonathan Quick Won't Be Fazed by Stanley Cup Pressure Despite Martin Brodeur's Experience (Podcast)

Perhaps the most intriguing Stanley Cup Final storyline is the goaltending. While Martin Brodeur is a grizzled veteran getting set for his 200th career playoff game on Wednesday, Jonathan Quick will have just 27 postseason contests under his belt.

Marty And Lou

from Damien Cox of the Toronto Star, It’s difficult to really ascertain who begat who. Did Lou Lamoriello make Martin Brodeur, or did Brodeur make Lamoriello? Did Brodeur become the game’s greatest goalie because he became part of Lamoriello’s New Jersey Devils, or has Lamoriello already taken up residency in the Hockey Hall of Fame because he had the best between the pipes...

Evening Line

“I’m really enjoying this. Regardless of what happens in this series, I think we made a great step last year at the end of the year and through this year to have a really good team and a good coaching staff together and it’s fun. To me, it’s all about having fun coming to the rink. I know a lot of people say it’s great to retire on top, but at the end of the day, when I’m...

Lars’ Stanley Cup Final Preview

By Lars Lewis The New Jersey Devils, a team who walked through hell (well come to think of it, doesn’t sound so new for a devil) to get to the Final, and the Los Angeles Kings, who have created a Hollywood script for the ages, meet tonight in game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final at 8PM on NBC.
