Brodeur went 8-1 in making nine straight starts since returning from an elbow injury that forced him to sit out 50 games this season.
Weekes, the backup to Scott Clemmensen for most of the time that Brodeur was sidelined, hadn't started since Feb. 19 against the Tampa Bay Lightning. He came on in relief on March 7 when the New York Islanders beat the Devils 7-3, Brodeur's only loss since his return.
I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
