NASHVILLE -- Martin Brodeur, he of the many accolades and numerous all-time NHL milestones, was cracking jokes prior to making his first start with the St. Louis Blues on Thursday instead of agonizing over any butterflies.
Brodeur, 42, was asked how it felt to be in a Blues jersey.
"More and more comfortable," the goaltender said, before joking, "I think if they gave me a jersey that fits me, it would be perfect."
Is it too big?
"Yeah, it's too big," Brodeur said with a big grin that got media members laughing. "They gave me [Fox Sports Midwest color analyst Darren Pang's] practice jersey."
