New Jersey Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur made history when he scored an odd goal on the Carolina Hurricanes Thursday night. This would be Brodeur’s third career goal, only one of thirteen goals ever scored by a goalie in NHL history/ Brodeur now sits in the top position for goals scored by a goaltender, beating out Ron Hextall.
To be fair, he wasn’t exactly the one who put the puck in the net. After a delayed penalty on New Jersey, Brodeur made a save in which he shoveled the puck over to Jordan Staal who, without clear control of the puck, banked off the boards and into the empty net. The goal was then credited to Brodeur.
This is the 40-year-olds first game back after sitting out the past thirteen games with a pinched nerve in his neck.
