Caps C Lang, Devils G Brodeur named NHL Players of Month

December 2, 2003
NEW YORK (Ticker) - Washington Capitals center Robert Lang, who led all NHL scorers with 22 points, on Tuesday was named the NHL Offensive Player of the Month.

Lang collected points in each of his 14 games and owned a plus-8 rating. Earning a point on 45 percent of his team's goals in November, he has a 15-game points-scoring streak - the longest this season and the longest by a Capitals player since Peter Bondra's 15-game run in 1997-98. It is two games shy of the club record set twice by Mike Gartner, most recently in 1984-85.

Lang edged Vancouver Canucks left wing Markus Naslund, who had five goals and 17 assists in 14 games, for the award.

The Defensive Player of the Month is New Jersey Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur, who held the opposition to one goal or fewer in seven of 12 starts and was 8-1-3 with a 1.30 goals-against average, .943 save percentage and three shutouts.

Brodeur helped the Devils record a 13-game unbeaten streak (10-0-3) from October 28-November 26 - the longest in the NHL this season.

Colorado Avalanche goaltender David Aebischer, who was 8-2-1 with a 2.44 GAA and one shutout, was runner-up for the award.

"Quite frankly, all the players are getting paid too much and all the contracts are too long," general manager Lou Lamoriello said. "But if you want to compete in this market and you want to win, there are some things you have to do."

“They’re the ones that makes it happen,” Lemaire said. “It’s not us. It’s not me. It’s not the other guy. It’s not the guy before. It’s not the guy after. It’s them. And they have to take care of business.”

Winner of the 2004 Lady Byng Award and the 2003 and 2004 Joe Nieuwendyk award.
"He has no ego," says Lou Lamoriello, general manager of the New Jersey Devils. "I don't think he has a selfish bone in his body. It gets infectious with people around him, but that's Joe. Having him here was something very special."
And the simple truth is this -- before and after Joe Nieuwendyk, this franchise has not been as good. Yes the same could be said for others, but Nieuwendyk's effect on his team, on his team's best players, on the fans and in the community can only be compared to, well, what Jarome Iginla is doing now in Calgary.
