Devils Goalie Brodeur Gets 3rd Career Goal in Win Over Carolina

March 22 (Bloomberg) -- Goalie Martin Brodeur scored a power-play goal to help the New Jersey Devils beat the Carolina Hurricanes 4-1 in.

Brodeur, 40, tallied his third career National Hockey League goal three minutes, 54 seconds into the game. He was playing for the first time since Feb. 21 because of a pinched nerve in his upper back and neck.

With New Jersey on a power play, a delayed penalty was called against the Devils and Carolina goalie Dan Ellis headed to the bench. Carolina’s Jordan Staal passed the puck back to the point from behind the New Jersey net and it slid all the way down the ice into the Hurricanes’ open net. Since Brodeur was the last Devils player to touch the puck, he got credit for an unassisted goal.

“When the puck went in the net, I was like, ‘Whoa, what happened there?”’ Brodeur told reporters. “I didn’t even know we had a delayed penalty or anything, so it was a little surprising.”

Brodeur’s earlier goals came in a 5-2 playoff win against the Montreal Canadiens on April 17, 1997, and in a 4-2 victory against the Philadelphia Flyers on Feb. 15, 2000.

Adam Henrique and Peter Harrold added goals for the Devils in the second period and Andrei Loktionov added a power-play goal in the final period at PNC Arena in Raleigh, North Carolina. Jeff Skinner scored a power-play goal for the Hurricanes.
