Brodeur on 1994: “Now it’s 1-1"


When in engaged in a smack talking session, a typical New Jersey Devils fan could point to Martin Brodeur’s run of three Stanley Cups while a New York Rangers devotee might lean on a guarantee. That retort lost a little steam tonight, though, as the Devils avenged 1994 by winning the other conference finals series between the two teams.

Just ask Brodeur.

“When you’re a kid, you’re dreaming to have a chance to win the Stanley Cup. So for us, winning today, gives us the opportunity to compete for it. And along the way, we beat a big rival that, especially for me, 18 years [later], everybody’s been talking about it.

So now it’s at least -- I don’t know if they’re going to give us credit, but it’s 1-1.”

In other words, Rangers fans are going to have to dig a little deeper for material. (My advice: start with Bon Jovi’s catalog.)

Oh yeah, and speaking of running tallies, Brodeur discusses making his fifth appearance in the Stanley Cup finals in the video below.
