Although Martin Brodeur seems likely to return next season with the New Jersey Devils, the 40-year-old goalie also isn't convinced their current season is over just yet.
While Brodeur acknowledges the enormity of New Jersey's plight in the Stanley Cup finals, the three-time NHL champion has been in plenty of tight spots with teams playing a whole lot worse than the Devils.
New Jersey faces the prospect of becoming the first team swept out of the Cup finals since 1998, but the Eastern Conference champions realize how close this series has been.
Coach Peter DeBoer says the Devils don't deserve to be down 0-3 to the Los Angeles Kings, who could win their first title in Game 4 on Wednesday night.

MY NAME IS MY NAME!
It hasn’t been a good week for the local news people. Earlier this week, some poor lady thought game four in the Heat-Celtics series ended in a tie. Another Los Angeles news woman had an issue reporting on the Los Angeles Kings 4-0 win against the New Jersey Devils in game three of the Stanley Cup Finals. A Los Angeles news anchor, let me repeat…a Los Angeles news anchor called...
LOS ANGELES -- The pass was a little behind Adam Henrique, nothing that a slight kick of the New Jersey Devils rookie forward's skate couldn't fix.
He got the puck to his stick and then put it past Kings goalie Jonathan Quick, a third-period tally that put the Devils in front for good in a 3-1 victory in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final on Wednesday. On a team with big-name...
The Eastern Conference Finals only provided further evidence that Zach Parise is a terrific player and would be an ideal fit for the New York Rangers.
There’s little doubt that GM Glen Sather is going to make Parise a massive multi-year offer when he becomes an unrestricted free agent on July 1st, but despite New York’s desire to convert the Devils’ captain into a true blue...
The 1942 Maples Leafs. The 1975 Islanders. The 2010 Flyers.
The only teams in NHL history to go down 3-0 in a playoff series and come back to win.
Only the '42 Leafs did it in the Stanley Cup final.
That's the task ahead of the Devils after their 4-0 loss to the Kings in Game 3 Monday night. Game 4 is Wednesday night in Los Angeles, which is now hockey country.
Only three NHL teams have rallied from a 3-0 deficit to win a playoff series, and just one -- the 1942 Toronto Maple Leafs -- did it in the Stanley Cup finals.
So the New Jersey Devils will either make history, or soon be history.
With a 4-0 loss to the Los Angeles Kings in Game 3 of the finals on Monday night, the Devils were pushed to the brink of elimination after a 102-point...
We get it. That Jonathan Quick fellow is rather good at this game.
He’s kept the Devils to just two goals in three full contests, and is as big a reason as any the Kings are one game away from hoisting Lord Stanley's Cup.
But this New Jersey squad is not one starved for offensive firepower, especially with the man advantage. However, their inability to cash in on the power...
The New Jersey Devils staved off elimination with a stifling 3-1 win over the Los Angeles Kings at Staples Center. They received goals from Patrik Elias, Adam Henrique, and an empty-netter from Ilya Kovalchuk. Tune in to Game 5 at Prudential Center in Newark, NJ, Saturday night at 8pm on NBC.
Everything is on the line when it comes to the Stanley Cup Final. Every player is chasing their dream of winning hockey's Holy Grail and will stop at nothing to get the job done. This can especially be said of the men who patrol the crease.This year's Final features one future Hall of Fame netminder Martin Brodeur of the New Jersey Devils against Jonathan Quick of the Los...
