New Jersey Devils goalie Martin Brodeur may be showing his age today against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Broduer, age 40,  left his crease to pick up his stick by the boards, but falls down on his way back to the net.

Of course this was career game 1,200 for the future Hall of Famer.

  1. hey dummy – tell the truth – that was an offside play – it wouldn’t of counted. Do u post foul ball home runs as well?

  2. He was also going to pick up his stick lol. The Devils were on the penalty kill and had just cleared the puck. Broduer, who had lost his stick in the run of play, went out to retrieve it when Fleury decided to skate out, gather and shoot the puck towards the empty net. There was still a Penguin in the zone, so it was an offside play.

    But he never had the puck. It went off one post and then other and then hit his leg and caromed out.

  3. Awesome video. Brodeur is still the man!

  4. This is a misrepresentation of what happened. Malkin shot the puck on an empty net, and Brodeur was simply trying to get out of the way of the puck. If you look at the other video angle it is quite clear that, after first hitting the post, the puck hits Brodeur in the skate, causing him to jump to try to prevent the puck from caroming into the net off his skate or body.

    In the future, I would hope that submissions on this blog will be more accurate in telling the (complete) story of what happened instead of just writing the easy headline.

  5. post more stuff like this so these people can keep getting worked up over it

  6. Liar! Given his career save percentage, Brodeur is in no way a shoe-in for the Hall.

    Get it together, Born.

  7. Total misrepresentation of the event. This wasn’t even a hockey game. This was a shot of Brodeur’s try out for New jersey Black Diamonds Figure Skating Team. Clearly he was performing a toe-loop there, although i believe he was marked down because his routine specified a single lutz.
