NHL Playoffs: 5 Reasons Martin Brodeur Will Retire a Stanley Cup Champion

Winning the Stanley Cup and retiring.

That's how every NHL player (and coach) would ideally like to end his career.

But rarely does that dream come true for aging veteran players.

One such veteran player that is still left in the playoff race is New Jersey Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur.

Brodeur, showed tonight, at the age of 40, why he is still considered a top 10 goaltender in the game, by simply besting the Flyers and their goalie, Ilya Bryzgalov, in a five-game series win on the road in Philadelphia.

Brodeur now awaits the conclusion of the other Eastern Conference series, as the New York Rangers lead the Washington Capitals 3-2 in their series.

Brodeur is flying a bit under the goaltender radar for these playoffs after the strong performances of Mike Smith of the Phoenix Coyotes and Jonathan Quick of the LA Kings over the first two rounds of the playoffs.
