The Devils evened their Eastern Conference Finals series against the Rangers with a 3-2 win in Game 2 on Wednesday. Martin Brodeur allowed two goals for the second straight game, and he was particularly irked about the first goal he allowed in Game 2 — one that was scored thanks to a rebound off the boards.
“It’s a tough place to play,” he said of Madison Square Garden after the game. “There’s so many bad bounces. The ice is not good, the boards are awful and the glass makes crazy bounces everywhere. In the second period I think two or three just went right in front of my net. So mentally it’s a tough game to play because you really have to look at the puck all game long.”
Even though Marc Staal’s goal bothered him, he was happy just to have the win.
“But I feel pretty good whenever I win. Doesn’t matter how I play, I feel good.”
Below is a video of the goal in question:
It’s easy to see why he was complaining. That was a bounce I’d expect in air hockey, not the NHL.
