The Devils greatest goaltender has been in the situation before
Right now, things are holding up in goal for New Jersey, but what happens down the road?
Martin Brodeur is not exactly where he is used to being in terms of his numbers. Some critics say that he is looking a little slow in net, but overall, Brodeur is still making saves and contributing to his team with wins.
Johan Hedberg has statistically outplayed Brodeur to this point in the season but not by a whole lot. Across the board, the Moose has performed admirably in the games he has played. Hedberg came up with 33 stops on 36 shots against Dallas, each of the tallies coming while the Devils were at even strength.
There are a couple of similar situations that come to mind, but most notably is when Brodeur was a rookie playing with Chris Terreri. Marty split time in the regular season and the playoffs, right up until Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals.
So, the question from here going forward really remains to be answered. Right now, it seems to be working with both goalies getting adequate time to rest between starts. However, we could be watching Marty's last season whether he likes it or not.
