You can't have the offense scoring 3+ goals a game for Brodeur and 1.5 goals a game for Cory continue indefinitely and keep dismissing it as a fluke. There has to be 'something' there. Especially when you see some of the efforts they put up for Cory compared to the efforts they usually put up for Marty.
Devils only scored two for Marty so I guess it's not a thing anymore.
Devils started Schneider wearing Marty's equipment. It's quite obvious.
