from Tom Gulitti of Fire & Ice,
Goaltender Martin Brodeur and the Devils had a scare with 1:31 remaining in tonight’s 2-1 loss in San Joses when Brodeur was struck in the back of the neck wit the puck while diving to stop a Brent Burns shot. Brodeur lay motionless on his back for about a minute before finally getting up to his knees. He eventually got up and remained in the game.
“It was more of a kind of electric shock through my body,” Brodeur explained. “It was kind of a little numbness everywhere. It went really quick through my legs and feet and fingers. I wasn’t sure. I never felt that before, so that’s why I didn’t move. When I got up, I was a little dizzy, but I guess it’s normal when you go through a little experience like that.”
