The New Jersey Devils’ Martin Brodeur has rewritten the history book, so you would just naturally assume that overtime postseason games are another area where he’s been traditionally dominate.
Actually, nothing could be further from the truth. While he’s earned 105 playoff wins, Brodeur entered the 2011-12 campaign with a 12-21 record in postseason overtime contests.
2012 has been the exception for Brodeur. With four of the Devils’ last five games going to overtime, Brodeur has held his own and posted a 3-1 record in those contests. Those three overtime wins are a new personal best for Brodeur in a single playoff run, and the Devils are only three games into their second round series.
Brodeur celebrate his 40th birthday on Sunday, but he certainly hasn’t been playing like a man whose career is winding down. While he has let in some weak goals along the way, Brodeur is still one of the reasons the Devils are just two wins away from the Eastern Conference finals.
