The New Jersey Devils started the year on a hot streak until Martin Brodeur was placed on IR. Brodeur missed 13 games but made his return on Thursday night against the Carolina Hurricanes. In the first period the Devils were on the powerplay when a bizarre play happened.
Carolina Hurricanes forward Patrick Dwyer was killing the penalty when he had an excellent shorthanded scoring chance. He was hooked on the play and the Devils were going to have a player headed to the penalty box. Brodeur had just made the save, making him the last Devils player to touch the puck, when Jordan Staal picked up the puck and sent a pass to the point. The only problem was it was a bad pass and the puck went all the way down the ice and into the empty net because Hurricanes goalie Dan Ellis had left the ice to give the Hurricanes an extra attacker on the delayed penalty. I’m going to go out on a limb and say that this is Brodeur’s first career power play goal.
Yikes, that stat has to hurt New York Rangers fans.

As a result of some poor puck handling by the Carolina Hurricanes, the puck ended up in their own net during the first period of Thursday night's game, giving the New Jersey Devils a power play goal. To add insult to injury, however, the Devils goal was credited to goaltender Martin Brodeur, as he was the last Devils player to touch the puck on the play.
HE'LL TAKE IT
Martin Brodeur has scored three goals in his career, including the playoffs. Thursday night, Marty was credited with a goal in his first game back from injury against the Carolina Hurricanes. He was the last Devil to touch the puck before a a horrible miscue by the 'Canes. Brodeur was given credit for the goal. It wasn't one of Brodeur's best goals, but hey, a...
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...
Moose Hedberg got his time between the pipes while Martin Brodeur was out with a back injury that kept him out a month...
So, what do you do to welcome yourself back...???
Score a goal...
Technically, he was credited with a goal since he was the last Devil to touch the puck in an own goal situation.
But, hey, a goal is a goal... and a power play goal...

It’s almost an ironic position for the Devils to be in.
Projected to miss the playoffs because of their aging goaltender, the Devils went from two points out of first place with their Hall of Fame goaltender, Martin Brodeur, to being two points out of a playoff spot because of his absence.
On the verge of making his debut back between the...
New Jersey Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur scored a surprising and odd goal tonight against the Carolina Hurricanes to put the Devils on top 1-0. Early in the first period, there was a delayed call on the Devils after a shot by Carolina that Brodeur stick saved, so, Hurricanes goaltender Dan Ellis left the net for an extra attacker. Jordan Staal received the puck and tried to pass...

Marty Brodeur and Jordan Staal last night:
Saw this comment on twitter " Brodeur scores on something besides his sister in-law," that joke is the joke that has survived the test of time.
