Tuesday, 03.17.2009 / 8:43 PM / Brodeur Watch
This is can't-miss TV. To celebrate New Jersey's Martin Brodeur setting the record for most career regular-season victories by a goaltender, NHL Network will debut an exclusive two-hour special titled "Brodeur: A Winner Above All" on Thursday, March 19 at 7 p.m. ET.

"Brodeur: A Winner Above All" is the most comprehensive special ever produced by the NHL Network.  Narrated by NHL Network’s John Wells and shown in HD, the show features commentary on Brodeur’s career from current and former members of the Devils organization including CEO/President/General Manager Lou Lamoriello, goaltending coach Jacques Caron, former Devils coaches Larry Robinson and Jacques Lemaire and former teammates including Scott Stevens, John MacLean, Ken Daneyko and Bruce Driver.  Hockey legends such as Wayne Gretzky, Mike Richter, Brian Leetch, Ron Hextall and Patrick Roy also share their thoughts on Brodeur.

The special will take viewers throughout Brodeur’s entire career, beginning with a glimpse into his childhood as the son of legendary Montreal Canadiens photographer Denis Brodeur Sr., and how growing up around the game shaped his future.  Viewers will learn that Brodeur almost quit hockey as a teen, but was coaxed back to the ice by his older brother, Claude.

Also covered in "Brodeur: A Winner Above All" is Brodeur’s relationship with his New Jersey goaltending coach Jacques Caron, his Olympic triumphs and disappointments, and the Devils’ three Stanley Cup championships.

The two-hour "Brodeur: A Winner Above All" special will re-air on the NHL Network on Saturday, March 21 at 4 p.m. ET and Sunday, March 22 at 8 p.m. ET.
Quote of the Day

For six months, it's a really good accomplishment. But as soon as April [11, the end of the regular season] comes around, no one thinks about the regular season anymore. For six months, it's a real battle to get into the playoffs in the NHL these days. There are a lot of good teams, and it takes consistency over a long time.
