Martin Brodeur Scores Goal Against Hurricanes

Written by 

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 it to one of his teammates. The puck missed its mark, rattled off the boards and sailed right into an open net for the goal. Since Brodeur was the last player to touch the puck, he gets credited for the goal.On top of the goal scored by Brodeur, it was a power play goal, too. Carolina's Alexander Semin was called for a cross-check just prior to the odd goal by the Devils.This goal is Brodeur's third career goal, most all-time amongst goaltenders, and his first since 2000 against the Philadelphia Flyers, also an own-goal. His first career goal was in the playoffs as he became the first goaltender to score a postseason goal in NHL history when he scored against the Montreal Canadiens. The Devils have won the previous two games that Brodeur had scored in.
