NEWARK, N.J. — Talk about mutual respect. It's there for both the Canes' Cam Ward and the New Jersey Devils' Martin Brodeur.
Brodeur has gotten many accolades — several from Ward — as he should as the winningest goalie in NHL history. But today, after the Devils' morning skate, he tossed a few in Ward's direction.
"He had a great year," Brodeur said. "Just looking at the last part of the season, to
be consistent and play so much, shows a lot about a goalie.
"He had the success (in the Stanley Cup), and the last few years was a little tougher, but he seems to have gotten his game back where he wants it and where his team thinks he has it."
