PHILADELPHIA -- The last time Martin Brodeur had three games in three nights was more than 20 years ago when he played in the American Hockey League.
But Brodeur, in his new role as adviser to the general manager of the St. Louis Blues, was seated next to GM Doug Armstrong in the press box at Wells Fargo Center on Saturday to watch the Philadelphia Flyers and Toronto Maple Leafs.
"It's four in four because we played Thursday too," Armstrong said.
After 22 seasons of watching NHL hockey from the top of his goal crease, Brodeur is getting a crash course in evaluating games from the top of the arena. He announced his retirement as a player Thursday to work in the Blues front office and that night was next to Armstrong to watch St. Louis host the Nashville Predators.
The next night he traveled with the Blues to see them play the Carolina Hurricanes. With the Blues off Saturday, he and Armstrong took a train from Washington to Philadelphia. They'll leave late Saturday night and be back in Washington in time for the Blues' game against the Washington Capitals on Sunday (1 p.m.; NBCSN).
"There's no nights off when you're on the road," Armstrong said.
That's one of the many adjustments for Brodeur.
"It's fun," the 42-year-old said. "I'm learning, asking a lot of questions. It's something that has really interested me. The last three days have been fun, being involved."
