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.

New Jersey Devils: Missing Martin Brodeur

By Kristin Tullo (@K_Tullo) Getty Images It’s almost an ironic position for the Devils to be in.

On the verge of making his debut back between the...
