So Martin Brodeur scored a goal last night.
You think it’s a great accomplishment? Ok, it IS a great accomplishment for any netminder to be credited with a goal.
Here are five other great goals by goalies.
5. Carolina’s Cam Ward vs. New Jersey, 2011. Basically the inverse of last night’s goal.
4. Detroit’s Chris Osgood vs. Hartford, 1996. Bonus points for this coming against a now-defunct NHL team.
3. San Jose’s Evgeni Nabakov vs. Vancouver, 2002. The only other power-play goal by a goalie.
2. Philadelphia’s Ron Hextall vs. Washington, 1989. The first playoff goal by a goalie…
1. Brodeur’s playoff goal vs. Montreal, 1997. …but this one is still the best.
