The New Jersey Devils retired Brodeur's No. 30 jersey Tuesday night during a pregame ceremony, giving his adoring fans at the Prudential Center one more chance to cheer the winningest goalie in NHL history.
I’m so glad Martin Brodeur is staying in New Jersey with the Devils. Wouldn’t it be great if all players could finish their careers with the teams they made their careers with?
Martin Brodeur made 20 saves in what might have been his last game with the Devils, and Stephen Gionta scored the tiebreaking goal with under 37 seconds left to lift New Jersey to a 4-3 victory over the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday night.
