When you think of the New Jersey Devils, one of the things you think of first is good goaltending.* But that hasn’t been the case this season, despite the team boasting one of the greatest ever in Martin Brodeur and one of the top up-and-comers in Cory Schneider.
After 34 games, the Devils rank 25th in the NHL with a team save percentage of just .904.
But there was nothing wrong with the goaltending Saturday, when Brodeur shut out the Lightning, 3-0, while stopping 33 shots and earning first-star honors.
*Statistically speaking, New Jersey hasn’t had elite regular-season goaltending since 2009-10.
