Brodeur's stats for the finals are awful, but not all of it was his fault. That team was excellent at controlling possession, but was prone to the odd breakdown and high percentage chance against - the image of Mogilny hitting the post, then sulking rather than backchecking as Colorado took it back to score (with Mogilny's man scoring the goal) will forever be burned into my mind.
And Roy's were great.

That was the story.
