Brodeur you magnificent bastard!

I only got to see the third period and OT last night, but what a ride. It was good to see the 'Canes return to aggression-the style of play that creates opportunities. They boys were back to playing like they expected good things to happen-even after the Devils scored.

The difference maker last night was Marty Brodeur. From stuffing Cory Stillman on the doorstep to drawing a BS penalty on Justin Williams, Brodeur just showed why he remains the best at crunch time. He is such a factor beyond the crease-from puck handling to making the breakout pass to knowing where the puck is going to be, and getting there first. He's always crafty and mojo enriched at just the right time.

One for the memory banks going into the playoffs.
