Yes, kids, I know this has absolutely nothing to do with the Stars. But I'm watching the Versus live look-in to the Devils-Blackhawks game, and Martin Brodeur has just collected his 552nd goaltending victory. The guy grabbed a pair of scissors and started cutting the net right off the posts. Think I saw Jamie Langenbrunner finishing the job.
I've always been a believer in things happening for a reason, be it life, work, etc. So think about this: His injury kept him out for months. He comes back and continues his pursuit of Patrick Roy's all-time victories record. So how does it happen?
He ties the record in Montreal, with Roy in attendance.
He breaks the record tonight at the Prudential Center in front of the home fans.
How's that for storybook? Congratulations to him.
