Not sure I've ever seen a goalie score a powerplay goal without the other net empty for an extra attacker, it would've been interesting to see the reaction nationally if the puck went in. Definitely would've made top plays and perhaps the not top plays on ESPN too.
It looks to me like the initial shot hits Brodeur as he's scrambling back. He reaches down to catch it but muffs, and then the crazy meandering path of the puck ensues.
