The fact that Nash missed that is not actually a good way to criticize him. He created the chance from scratch. Unlikely is all the miss is. If he keeps doing that all night, it's a good thing... not a bad thing. You really think the next time Nash is that close it doesn't go? He misses that 1/10 times and is the only guy on the roster who could have created that opportunity. He's also playing with an edge right now and looks hungry this period.
It's not that complicated - Brodeur is a hall of famer.
We knew it since 1994 - we really have witnessed one of the greatest goaltending careers in the history of the game... from the other side. The Devils will have to figure out what to do once he calls it quits.
call me crazy but if your go to offensive transition is dump and chase, or your go to defensive play is to get loose pucks to the boards you should be good at playing the boards of be halway capable of playing well along the boards..... if not stop doing it, its broke so fix it.
