The green jacket had been presented to Brodeur following the game by defenseman Marek Zidlicky. A recently-started tradition to honor the team’s player of the game in a winning effort, Zidlicky had received the jacket for his overtime goal in Saturday’s 2-1 win over Florida. Goaltender Cory Schneider had been the first to receive it – from assistant coach Mike Foligno – following his 1-0 win over Dallas on Thursday. - See more at: http://blogs.northje...h.1yj16RjI.dpuf
I don't recall the Devils ever doing this or anything like it. Does anyone? I know a few teams do it like the rangers with their dumb hat.
