Brodeur 'at peace' with how playing career ended

Mike G. Morreale - Staff Writer

NEWARK, N.J. -- Retired NHL goaltender Martin Brodeur has no regrets over how he ended his career after setting numerous records and winning three Stanley Cup championships as a member of the New Jersey Devils.

In Brodeur's eyes, playing the final seven games of his career with the St. Louis Blues was all part of his incredible journey.

"You know what, I'm at peace with that decision," Brodeur told "Looking back, I have zero regrets in how I closed out my career. In the perfect storm finishing up as a member of the Devils would have been great but I never thought it would happen that way, never saw it coming."

The Devils announced Tuesday they will retire Brodeur's No. 30 on Feb. 9 at Prudential Center; a statue of Brodeur will also be built outside Prudential Center in Championship Plaza.

Canadiens pit continuity against new-look Maple Leafs

Tuesday, 10.06.2015 / 4:00 PM / 2015 Molson Canadian NHL Face-Off

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor

MONTREAL -- The Montreal Canadiens and Toronto Maple Leafs will raise the curtain on the 2015-16 NHL season Wednesday at Air Canada Centre on opposite ends of the team-building spectrum.

The Maple Leafs offseason was defined by change, as it should be for a team that finished 27th in the overall standings last season. The expectations in Toronto are modest, looking to take the first step on what appears to be a long journey back toward the Stanley Cup Playoffs and, eventually, the franchise's first Stanley Cup since 1967.

The Canadiens, on the other hand, sought continuity, making minimal personnel changes and looking to build on three straight playoff appearances by adding a fourth, one they can legitimately hope will end with new captain Max Pacioretty raising the Stanley Cup.

The contrast between the NHL's two oldest and most iconic franchises is striking, and it will be on full display Wednesday (7 p.m. ET; SN, TVA Sports) as the Maple Leafs look to establish the type of team identity the Canadiens already seemingly have.

Decade of Crosby-Ovechkin filled with highlights

Tuesday, 10.06.2015 / 12:00 PM / Sunday Long Read

Dan Rosen - Senior Writer

In this special weekday edition of the Sunday Long Read to kick off the 2015-16 season, looks at the rivalry that has helped define the League for the past decade: Sidney Crosby of the Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Alex Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals

Sidney Crosby and Alex Ovechkin were in the spotlight, a place they have occupied individually throughout their hockey careers. This time, however, it was different. This time, they were sharing the attention, going head-to-head under the glare of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

This was a defining moment.

Weekes: Four goalies I wish I played against

Tuesday, 10.06.2015 / 10:00 AM / Game Savers

Kevin Weekes - NHL Network Analyst

NHL Network analyst Kevin Weekes, in conjunction with the new Canada Post goaltender stamp series, provides his insight into the position he played for 11 seasons in the League.

In this week's edition, Weekes discusses the goalies he wish he had an opportunity to play against.

I was fortunate that I got to play against a lot of my heroes and a lot of the guys I idolized growing up.

Dominik Hasek, Martin Brodeur, Patrick Roy, Ed Belfour, Curtis Joseph and Roberto Luongo were a few of those players. I even had a chance to be teammates with Luongo and Brodeur.

I got to play in an era with some of the greats. However, there are many goalies I didn't get to face. Whether it was their style, their ability to come up clutch in the big game or their impact on the game, there are four goalies I wish I could have played against.

Canadiens' Price preseason pick to win Vezina

Tuesday, 10.06.2015 / 3:00 AM / Trophy Tracker

Kevin Woodley - Correspondent

Montreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price is coming off a Hart Trophy season and has been described as a living how-to DVD for the position, so not putting him at the top of preseason predictions for another Vezina Trophy would be overthinking things.

Not only did Price lead the NHL in save percentage (.933), goals-against average (1.96) and wins (44) last season, but according to, he was at or near the top in even-strength save percentage (.943) and adjusted save percentage (.939), which weighs the quality of shots based on distance from the net.

The fact all were career bests suggests a correction is possible, and Price could take a step back this season, but watching how subtle tweaks under goaltending coach Stephane Waite have allowed him to improve the past two seasons, it seems just as possible Price could become the first goalie since Martin Brodeur of the New Jersey Devils in 2007 and 2008 to win consecutive Vezina Trophies.

Five Questions: Stars' Ruff talks Benn, expectations

Dan Rosen - Senior Writer's Q&A feature called "Five Questions With …" runs every Tuesday. We talk to key figures in the game and ask them questions to gain insight into their lives, careers and the latest news.

The latest edition features Dallas Stars coach Lindy Ruff:

Dallas Stars coach Lindy Ruff knows the potential of his new No. 1 line featuring Jamie Benn, Tyler Seguin and Patrick Sharp. What he doesn't know is the type of chemistry that line can have, and how quickly it can come together.

Ruff didn't learn nearly enough in the preseason because Benn was limited to two games with the Stars being cautious about his recovery from multiple hip surgeries he had during the offseason.
