08:25 AM ET 05.14 | Back in 1994, the Rangers needed seven games to eliminate the Devils, a series that included three games that went to double overtime and Mark Messier's guarantee. In a strange way, Martin Brodeur thinks he might have the New York Rangers to partly thank for where he is today. ... [The] 40-year-old said on Sunday that losing to the Rangers in the Eastern Conference final 18 years ago cemented part of the foundation in his legendary career. "I think I grew from that," Brodeur said. "It hurt. I was the first one to say it was one of the toughest losses I have had. If I didn't have it, maybe I would never have became who I became, or even the organization, not just myself. Sometimes you need to hit little hurdles."

Well it's not like the Tronto Sun has gets to talk about the Leafs in May. Besides recycling is green for the environment.

We could just blow this topic off and talk about how L A took game one down in Phoenix last night. Wasn't sure how the Kings would react to their supahstah goaler letting a 100 foot slapper go right by his glove, but they didn't let it affect them and when Quick made another gaffe that cost them a second goal they just got right back after it again.Impressive.

That was a weird goal. I didn't catch the post game. Did Quick say where is head was at on that goal?

I watched mos of it...They really ran through Phoenix, which surprised me.
And how did Doan not get a call for that Greco-Roman Face-Off takedown?

I think the real story hear is that Brodeur is still playing after 20+ years in the league. And that we are talking about a rematch that started 18 years ago. This was his third season season too, not like he was a rookie. A lot of the guys he is playing against were born his Rookie season or later.

It is amazing that this guy is still playing, especially b/c he is a goalie. Best goalie to ever play the game.

For the most part it seemed the refs were letting the players decide the game. Kind of refreshing in these playoffs.
