Brodeur on 1994: “Now it’s 1-1”

When in engaged in a smack talking session, a typical New Jersey Devils fan could point to Martin Brodeur‘s run of three Stanley Cups while a New York Rangers devotee might lean on a guarantee. That retort lost a little steam tonight, though, as the Devils avenged 1994 by winning the other conference finals series between the two teams.

Just ask Brodeur.

“When you’re a kid, you’re dreaming to have a chance to win the Stanley Cup.  So for us, winning today, gives us the opportunity to compete for it. And along the way, we beat a big rival that, especially for me, 18 years [later], everybody’s been talking about it.

So now it’s at least — I don’t know if they’re going to give us credit, but it’s 1-1.”

In other words, Rangers fans are going to have to dig a little deeper for material. (My advice: start with Bon Jovi’s catalog.)

Oh yeah, and speaking of running tallies, Brodeur discusses making his fifth appearance in the Stanley Cup finals in the video below.

    What Marty was really trying to say was, “Here’s Subzero, now…plain zero. “

    Enjoyed watching Roy and Hasek in their prime… but Marty is the best ever in the NHL.

    Like to see Marty win it – and make it very tough to match or surpass his success.

      I can’t stand Brodeur or the Devils. They pretty much ruined hockey in the 90’s with the trap. Go Kings!!!

        Refresh my memory… exactly how much trap has Marty played?
