New Jersey Devils goalie Martin Brodeur scored his third career goal tonight in a game against the Carolina Hurricanes. This goal was different than his previous three in that it came within the first five minutes of the game.
Hurricanes goalie Dan Ellis was on the bench with an impending delayed penalty on the Devils. The Hurricanes were on a rush and Brodeur innocently swiped the puck away and was the last member of the Devils to touch the puck.
One errant pass later and the puck ricocheted off the boards, down the ice, into the empty Hurricanes net. Goal Brodeur, giving the Devils a 1-0 lead early in the first period.
Yes, there are other sports than college basketball going on tonight.
