Video: Devils ‘win one for Marty’

Apr 13, 2014, 6:49 PM EDT

A lot is up in the air for Martin Brodeur this summer, but if this is his last game in the NHL in general or the New Jersey Devils specifically, he went out a winner. The Devils treated him like such, too:

Sunday’s 3-2 victory against the Boston Bruins fattens Brodeur’s NHL-record win total to 688, all with the Devils. The 41-year-old also collected 113 playoff victories for the Devils, so he has 801 victories between the regular season and postseason for this franchise.

Despite all the accolades, this season cemented the notion that the Devils are now Cory Schneider‘s team, so the question for Brodeur is: what’s next?

While the future Hall of Famer’s next step is unclear, there was no distinguishing the goal on Sunday: the Devils wanted to “win one for Marty,” as Dainius Zubrus said.

    Whatever he does in the future, wherever he plays, it’s been a privilege to watch him. Good luck, Marty!

    Classy move, nice job by the fans as well. Marty has been unbelievable and has been such a joy to watch, even as a Penguins fan, you have to enjoy and respect what he did, for that long, and play at such a great level and make save after save. Glad Ive been around to see it. Thank you Marty, best of luck with whoever you decide to play with or if you hang them up.

    Love him or hate him (or the team he’s played for), you HAVE to respect what he’s done in hockey and for hockey. SALUTE good sir.

    I’d love to see him reach 700 in a devils uniform

    I’ve watched Marty stonewall the Flyers many a times. Dude is a stud. I’d like to see him retire as a Devil. We shall see what the future holds for him.

    James O’Brien sez: ” there was NO DISTINGUISHING the goal on Sunday: the Devils wanted to ‘win one for Marty’. Huh? You wrote an article about the goal — seems distinguished.

    Nothing but respect for him. I was at this game and it was absolutely awesome.
