Martin Brodeur seems to have a good sense of showmanship.
It certainly was not lost on the New Jersey goaltending great as the tried to tie Patrick Roy, his childhood idol, with all time with his 551st win. | Also see: Is Brodeur The Greatest? |
Not only did Brodeur have a chance to do it in Montreal, where Roy reigned supreme for years, but he had a chance to do it with Roy in attendance.
Brodeur seized the moment and led his Devils' to a 3-1 victory.
Brodeur will now have a chance to become the winningest goalie in NHL history when the Devils host Chicago on Tuesday - St. Patrick's Day, of all days.
Isn't it ironic . . . don't you think? That Martin Brodeur is such a little devil!
