Brodeur Back for Ninth All-Star Game
Saturday, January 13, 2007 6:16 PM EST
The Associated Press
By IRA PODELL



NEW YORK (AP) Martin Brodeur is headed back to the NHL All-Star game. Banged-up forwards Jaromir Jagr and Jarome Iginla are not.

Brodeur, taking aim at many career goaltending records, was one of 30 players selected Saturday for hockey's midseason classic to be held this month in Dallas. The backbone of New Jersey's defense for more than a decade, Brodeur is an All-Star for the ninth time.

If he leads the Eastern Conference to victory on Jan. 24, Brodeur would match Glenn Hall's All-Star record of four wins. He has a 3-1 career record and is fourth among goalies in appearances, trailing Hall (13), and Terry Sawchuk and Patrick Roy, who each made 11.

Jagr, the New York Rangers captain, won't be making the trip despite being tied for fifth in the league with 58 points entering play Saturday. The nine-time All-Star has been slow to regain strength in his left shoulder following offseason surgery, and will instead use the week off to rehab, and rest an aching hip at the request of the Rangers.

"We talked about it that it would be better for me not to go," Jagr said.

Iginla played in each of the last three All-Star games, but the Calgary Flames captain isn't among the Western Conference's 15 reserves because of a knee injury. He has 23 goals and 53 points in 39 games this season.

Brodeur shows no sign of slowing down at 34. In 42 games this season, his 14th in the NHL, Brodeur has posted a league-high 26 victories and seven shutouts. His 2.07 goals-against average ranks second to Detroit's Dominik Hasek, who was left off the West roster.

Devils win in OT 2-1.

Marty came within 0.7 seconds of his second consecutive shutout in Nassau Coliseum.

Was confused as to why we couldn't post on the old thread. Thought you guys might not want to hear my views. I thought if a thread was shut down it disappeared.

Too late, it already worked.

I didn't think there were that many folks in Buffalo who could read or afford a postage stamp.

That is why I had to sit on my computer up here and do the voting. Who would have thought that one Canadian supporting Buffalo could achieve so much. I almost got Rory fitzpatrick voted in also but i had to go to work sometime.

New Jersey Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur makes a save as New York Rangers' Blair Betts, right,...


Martyball: Brodeur Nets Another Shutout
Tuesday, January 16, 2007 10:30 PM EST
The Associated Press
By TOM CANAVAN

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) Martin Brodeur stopped 26 shots for his NHL-best eighth shutout of the season and the New Jersey Devils opened a 10-point lead in the Atlantic Division with a 1-0 win over the New York Rangers on Tuesday night.

Defenseman Brad Lukowich scored in the first period, ending a 20-game goal drought with his second of the season. The surging Devils won for the ninth time in 11 games (9-1-1) and moved 10 points in front of the second-place Rangers.

Brodeur wasn't tested much in his 88th career shutout, but he came up big when it counted, stopping Martin Straka in front on a backhander with 3:44 to play.

Before that, the Rangers' best scoring chances came in the opening minutes. Defenseman Marek Malik hit the post while coming in late on a play about five minutes into the game, and Brendan Shanahan was stopped by Brodeur on a breakaway a couple of minutes later.

Henrik Lundqvist made 31 saves the Rangers.

Lukowich's goal came on a shot from the left point with Devils forward Jamie Langenbrunner in front of Lundqvist. Langenbrunner attempted to deflect the shot, which might have caused the Rangers' goalie to miss it.

Devils forward Brian Gionta created a little excitement late in the opening period, shoving a rebound into the net with his glove, but the apparent goal was quickly waved off by the officials.

The shutout was Broduer's fourth in the last 11 games and it moved him just six behind George Hainesworth for second overall in NHL history. Terry Sawchuk's 103 is the record.

Once again the Devils did a great job on Jaromir Jagr, limiting him to one third-period shot. It was a good one, though. Jagr also set up Petr Prucha for a tough second-period shot.

Patrik Elias of the Devils almost got a lucky goal in the first period when his shot from the point deflected off Rangers defenseman Fedor Tyutin and hit the post.

The Devils were not called for a penalty, keeping the Rangers' potent power play off the ice. New Jersey was 0-for-4 with the extra skater.

Sure would have liked to watch this one, but my team had practice.

They had the Isles/Penguins game on one TV at the rink, and the Blackhawks on the other.


Why not watch a winner?

Never mind Tim Connoly's family lives right around the corner from the rink.

A small vent here-how fuc*ed up is the fan voting for the AllStar game when the goaltender with the best record,yes better than Brodeur's, is left out. The process must have been decided by the same morons who do the scheduling...

I assume you're talking about that Dominator guy?

Is he still healthy this late in the season???



(Actually, Sports Illustrated had an article about Dominick, the extra work he's done stretching this year.)

That'd be my man,the original snow angel goalie, Dominek Hasek. Kenny Holland,Wings GM was a between periods guest on Monday nights game vs.the Habs ( 2-0 SO , 6th. this season for the old man btw) and had a lot to say about keeping Hasek healthy, lots of stretching like you said Ron. Groin injuries ended my playing days,I wouldn't wish that on anybody.

Being a long time Sabre fan and living in Ottawa, I can tell you - Let the Dominator stay home. He will get some season ending injury at the All Star game anyway.

Ottawa's biggest mistake was not spending that 1.5 million on Hasek. Let Emery play all year and put Hasek in for the playoffs. Bot they chose to sign another team's reject (Gerber) instead. Gerber rides the bench and Hasek puts up the shut outs. Saw that coming a mile away.

Eight shutouts for Marty so far.

Four in the last eleven games, and he missed a fifth by 0.7 seconds.

Those will bring his GAA down.


I had a pulled groin during a HS soccer season, man what pain.

Ken had one a few years ago and missed a whole month of hockey.

This is a hockey thread.

And a Canadian goes for the obvious low-brow cheap joke.

Like farting loudly in church, I tell ya.

Our Beavers drive the damn trucks. Except for the two that keep trying to sell us cellphones. May a tire find its mark there.

Oh and the Sabres return the favor to the Bruins.

saw the game and then watched a Best Of Bobby Orr DVD. Thanks God he isn't still playing for them. Truly amazing. Loved him in a Hawk jersey. Too bad it didn't last.
