Last season, there was a game at the Prudential Center, New Jersey Devils hosting Washington Capitals. The game ended up lousy, the Devils playing like garbage, the Caps winning 4-0. But there was one moment that made sitting through it worth the : Alexander Ovechkin got the puck, and pretty much had a breakaway on Martin Brodeur. I knew this was a classic, a stood up, and yelled, “Watch this!” Ovechkin fired, and the puck took off like a rocket for the upper-right corner of the net, and Brodeur somehow wrapped his glove around it and brought it down. Total time from Ovechkin getting the puck to Brodeur bringing his glove down, four amazing seconds. Is there another shooter vs. goalie matchup you’d pay that much to see?
You got lucky, what you saw was the greatest goalscorer vs. the greatest goaltender of all time. It’s hard to top that. I would love to see a Brodeur/ Datsyuk match up.
Price vs. ovechkin would be a good one too. Price is on his way to greatness.
