Henrik Lundqvist goes for win No. 30 tonight (or any night hereafter), which would make him the first goalie in NHL history to win 30 in each of his first five seasons. Of course that includes skills competitions.
And it doesn’t quite compare to Martin Brodeur’s eight 40-win seasons, and 13 seasons of 30 or more wins (Brodeur failed to win 30 in his first two seasons — as a rookie he split time with Chris Terreri; his second season he won 19 of 40 games after the lockout; and last season, when he played only 31 games because of injury, was the only other time he’s failed to hit 30).
You know what always cracks me up about the Prudential Center? This is the home of the Devils, one of the most notoriously frugal franchises in sports, right?
Well, engraved on top of the chrome plumbing on every urinal and toilet in the whole building is the Devils logo. How much do you think that cost? I don’t even think the Yankees or Cowboys did that in their new buildings, though I wouldn’t be surprised if they had.
Bonehead Shout-out Alert: Dave Maloney just asked me to come on the radio with him during the first intermission. So come over to the radio side after the first.
