New Jersey's Brodeur records goal in return

New Jersey Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur was credited with his NHL-record third career goal during Thursday's game against the Carolina Hurricanes at PNC Arena.

Brodeur, who had missed the last 13 games with back soreness, made a stick save on Jeff Skinner's breakaway attempt early in the first period, but New Jersey defenseman Marek Zidlicky was whistled for hooking.

Carolina netminder Dan Ellis then left his net because of the delayed penalty call, and Hurricanes forward Jordan Staal fired a pass toward the left point that banked off the boards and traveled the length of the ice into the empty net.

Brodeur was the last New Jersey player to touch the puck and was credited with the power-play marker at the 3:54 mark.
