Stop! The love you save may be your own! Darling, take it slow, or some day you’ll be all alone. You’d better stop the love you save may be your own! You’re headed for the danger zone. -Jackson Five
That’s right, hockey talk. Hockey Krishnas rejoice! New Jersey Devils hockey talk. And when I say New Jersey Devils hockey, you know what I’m talking about, boyeee! Martin Brodeur. The very bestest. Better than all the restest. Putting the NHL to the testest. So the Devils go down to Columbus looking for a soul to steal. Chicken in the bread pan pickin’ out dough. Granny, does your dog bite? No, child, no. Yup the Devils go down to Colimbus and come out with the victory. The Devils go down to Colimbus and Martin Brodeur comes away with yet another shutout. Read More »
Nobody does it better, makes me feel sad for the rest. Nobody does it half as good as you, baby, you’re the best. -Carly Simon
Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! Just a quick one. Quick like a hockey stick one. Martin Brodeur already holds the record for most regular season wins. Martin Brodeur already holds the record for most shutouts, regular season and playoffs combined. Martin Brodeur already holds the record for most 40-win seasons. Face it, Martin Brodeur already hold the record for a lot of things. Add another one to the list. The active list at least. Last night, Satan’s Wallpaper made 34 saves in his 3-2 win over the Bruins. Hooray Martin Brodeur! But as special as that was, that has nothing to do with this post. What does have to do with this post is this: He also was credited with an assist on New Jersey’s second goal.

I’m getting closer, my salamander. Oh, when will we be there? Oh no, don’t answer, oh no. -Paul McCartney
Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! Now, I love me some Martin Brodeur as much as the next guy. I think he’s the best goalie I’ve ever seen. The best goalie there’s ever been. Better than a Mickey Mouse gumball machine. Thanks for the gumball, Mickey! But, unfortunately, I think that’s all his all-time wins by a goaltender record is. Mickey Mouse. However, last night, Satan’s Wallpaper inched one step closer to the real record. Brodeur’s 5-2 win against Nashville last night was the 500th regular-season regulation victory of his NHL career. Hooray Marty Brodeur! Alas, Brodeur is still second to Patrick Roy. Second to Roy in victories earned in regulation time (507-500). Just so you know, of Brodeur’s 591 career wins, 57 have come in overtime and 34 in shootouts. Just so you know, Roy had 44 overtime victories among his 551 career wins and he retired before the advent of the shootout. Just so you know, Brodeur should have the real record by season’s end.
Peace out homies. Six two and Even!
For candle after candle and you still couldn’t wax this. I be the wickedest while you’re still the wackest. I need wallpaper to list what your track missed. -Naughty By Nature
Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! First things first. First thing is Martin Brodeur is the best goalie I have ever seen in my life. All those wins. All those shutouts. All those rings. All those Vezina Cups. All those William M. Jennings Trophies. All those All-Star appearances. That Calder Cup. Everything. Sweet sassy molassy! They don’t call him Satan’s Wallpaper for nothing. But if anybody has got Martin Brodeur’s number, that somebody is Simon Gagne. Jenny, I got your number. I need to make you mine. Jenny, don’t change your number. 8-6-7-5-3-0-9. More like 18.

Throw another round. Sick of the ride. It’s suicide for the other side of town when I find a way to shut ‘em down. Shet ‘em down. Shut ‘em, shut ‘em down. -Public Enemy
Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! By now you all know what Martin Brodeur has done did. You all know Martin Brodeur robbed Evgeni Malkin with a glove save in the last minute at the Igloo last night. You know that was the 35th and final save of his 104th regular-season shutout. You all know that broke Terry Sawchuk’s N.H.L. career mark and Brodeur is now the shutout king. All hail the king! Is there any goalie on the radar screen that could some day challenge Martin Brodeur’s wins and shutout record? Not that I can see. No other active goaltender has even half as many total shutouts as Brodeur. Chris Osgood is second with 50. He ain’t gonna make it. I don’t know if anyone will.
Peace out homies. Six two and Even!
I’m down. I’m really down. I’m down. Down on the ground. I’m down. I’m really down. How can you laugh when you know I’m down. -The Beatles
Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! Down goes Brodeur! Down goes Brodeur! He is beaten! Who woulda thunk it? Not my boy Blue, I can tell you that. The Carolina Hurricanes thunked it. The Carolina Hurricanes own Martin Brodeur. Who owns da Chiefs? The Carolina Hurricanes own Martin Brodeur in crunch time. Crunch and munch time. The Hurricanes own Brodeur in roundhouse punch time. Like my main man Bruce Lee always says, “Take things as they are. Punch when you have to punch. Kick when you have to kick.” Read More »
Devils 1 Hurricanes 0: They don’t call him The Door for the nothin’. Knock knock. Who’s there? Martin Brodeur bitch! Last night, Martin Brodeur was there tying Patrick Roy’s NHL record for most career shutouts in the playoffs. Last night, Martin Brodeur was there making forty-four saves. Forty-four! Yowza! Those forty-four saves were a personal high for Brodeur in a shutout, regular-season or playoffs. Those forty-four saves were the most by any NHL goaltender in a regulation (non-overtime) 1-0 win since Ed Belfour made forty-eight saves in Game 5 of the 2000 Stanley Cup Final, with the Stars facing elimination at the hands of, you guessed it, the Devils.

Someone’s knockin’ at the door. Somebody’s ringin’ the bell. Do me a favor, open the door and let em’ in. -Paul McCartney
Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! What in tarnation is going on around here? Up is down. Down is up. Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together… mass hysteria! What in tarnation is going on with Martin Brodeur? Last seen, in the first ten games that he played after missing nearly four months with an elbow injury, Satan’s Wallpaper was 9-1-0 with a 1.75 goals-against average and three shutouts. Yowza! That was then This is now. Now, Brodeur is 0-5-1 with a 3.65 GAA in six games since then, including his 6-1 loss in Pittsburgh last night. Egads man. That’s bad. Really bad. That matches the longest previous winless streaks of Brodeur’s NHL career. Yikes! He better get back to being the Brodeur we all know and love if the Devils want a chance in this thing. And he better do it soon.
Peace out homies. Six two and Even!
Devils 3 Blackhawks 2: Eli Diablo! Dios Mio! El Diablo! What a great night for Devils fans. A record setting night. A record setting night for Patrick Elias. Last night, with an assist on Brian Gionta’s goal in the second period, Elias became the Scouts/Rockies/Devils all-time leader in points. How about that? Read More »
What’s the use of money if you ain’t gonna break the mold? Even at the center of fire there is cold. All that glitters ain’t gold -Prince
Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! First thing’s first. I love me some Martin Brodeur. I think he’s the best goalie I’ve ever seen. The best goalie there’s ever been. Better than a Mickey Mouse gumball machine. Thanks for the gumball, Mickey! But unfortunately, that’s all this record is. Mickey Mouse. Last night, Satan’s Wallpaper notched his 551st win. Notched his 551st win and tied Patrick Roy for the all time wins record. I’m sorry, I just don’t feel good about this one. I don’t get it. I don’t got it. I don’t know it’s good. This rhyme I write, I’m not so sure you wish you could. Read More »
