Brodeur can't be defended in any way tonight. There are goalies who stop ALL 6 of what he gave up tonight. There were no incredible tips or 150mph howitzers to the top corner. It was lame trickly garbage.

 

Even on the 3-1 that goals was SOFT. The second Zuccarello goal was a joke as well. Stralman...forget it.

 

Brodeur broke the Devils backs today. This was not a shooting gallery. These were floaters and tricklers.

Just sucks that they gave up a 3-1 lead in first period! We should have punished them but they chocked!

I'll comment more on this later.. But I'm sitting in Penn Station right now, thinking this whole thing over.

In general, what an awesome experience. My dad and I had an absolute blast, the atmosphere was amazing (and cold, especially in the 2nd period) but it was great.

Brodeur was awful this game. The D was bad, but he literally didn't make a single big save. Every single dangerous shot got by him.. That second goal was a back breaker. Devils had the momentum, the game was theirs.. And in the blink of an eye, the Rangers had all the momentum.

Positives? JJ looked good, hope he gets a chance. This should solidify Cory as the starter for the rest of the season, no questions asked.

Shame they couldn't get this win in, would've been great to send these a$$holes home without something to cheer about.

Stepan holding Zajac's stick on his breakaway... No wonder he couldn't get the shot off.

 

Haven't seen a penalty shot (personally) in months and two in the last two outdoor games... hmmmm...

 

I just had this convo with a buddy of mine

 

Very rare to see, and with the one in last night's Ducks/Kings game, and the one today...

 

2 in less than 24 hours

 

Very interesting to say the least

Penalty shots are not that rare and if Zajac fouled Stepan there (which is what refs assume), that's worthy of a penalty shot

Remember the days when you saw a penalty shot maybe three times a season? And even then you had to really earn it.

Anyway this is what happens when you don't play well and Brodeur is in net - the Rangers are fast and NJ made a lot of bad plays that helped that speed out.  We can only hope this is what gets the coaching staff to see what a lot of others are seeing - Brodeur is through and should play, at most, in back to back games the rest of the season.

I only saw three Rangers goals (4th, 5th, and 6th), but none of those three can be pinned on Brodeur.  The 3 on 1 was a redirection to the opposite side of the net that the pass was going to, that's usually a goal against anybody, and the other two goals were deflected by his own defensemen.  You've had it out for Brodeur for years, so clearly you are having a hard time analyzing these goals objectively or have never actually played goalie yourself, or both.

As big of.a brodeur.supporter i am schedier needs to b the number 1for the rest of the season if we want to attempt to make the playoffs. That was the worst game ive ever seen him play. He should have stopped at least half.of them. As a.golie myself i.cant fault him on odd man breaks as its not easy on tje goalie (the d and the tram are supposed to prevent them)

I understand.  But I think 5-10 PS's per team per season is ideal.  Back in the day it was too rare imo.

I agree completely unfortunately.  Yes the defense was horrible, but not one of the goals the Rags scored came off of good scoring chances.  Even the 3 on 1 goal by Zuccarello was more due to bad lateral movement by him.  I'll give him the benefit of the doubt on the Nash goal because of the deflections.  All 6 goals should have been stopped no matter how bad some of the defensive breakdowns were.

I'd agree with everything there except the last part. They weren't all stoppable. The difference was, the Brodeur of old would have found a way to stop a few of them. He just doesn't have that anymore. It's sad to see, but I hope this helps him realize it's time to end it at the end of the season.

How can you say "not one of the Rags goals came off of good scoring chances" and then immediately say "even the 3 on 1". In what league is a 3 on 1 not a good scoring chance?

I'd like to know which goal was not stoppable.

The Brodeur of old wouldn't have had to worry about liabilities such as Volchenkov running him over and having his ass facing the shot and the complete and utter slowness of Salvador and the cluelessness of Fayne. As much as Brodeur could have/should have gotten one or two....there's no way he's walking into the HOF behind that kind of defense his whole career.

The 3 on 1 wasn't some sort of amazing passing play.  He had enough time to get to his post.  Zuccarello simply snuck the puck in past him.

We agree. How bad was the trip home since the game was delayed and therefore probably effected transportation?
