He has as many goals as David Booth does, and they both scored their only goal into an empty net haha

Franzen - Datsyuk - Brodeur

 

 

 

 

 

Occasionally replace Franzen with Young Floating Mike Babcock.

Not the "typical" empty netter scored by a goalie, but his goal never-the-less :-)

Another tick in the brilliant career of Marty Brodeur. Prob my all time favorite goalie and easily in the top 3 of greatest tenders of all time. Congrats Marty.

Sorry I can't stand Brodeur. Even if he is one of the best ever just like Patrick Roy can't stand either of them. Very lucky goal but nonetheless congrats to him.

 

Did I mention that was "lucky?"

For obvious reasons I can assume why you dislike Roy, but curious as to why so much dislike for MB?

Wow.  I probably should point out that EVERY SINGLE goal ever scored by a goalie is lucky.  It's not like they're out there taking one timers, so to emphasize it's "luckiness" is sort of redundant.  The luckiness of it is what makes it so rare and odd.  Like a freakshow, but with less terror.

Well, this one is more lucky than most.  There was a delayed penalty coming and Brodeur touched the puck, but didn't have enough to be considered in possession, so no whistle.  The puck then gets picked up by Staal I believe who then passes to a teammate but misses, deflects off the boards and down the ice into the empty net.

Again, anytime a goalie scores it's because of luck, not because of skill.  You're splitting hairs for some reason that I can't understand. 

 

Also, it's really not that strange though it's still really lucky.  The exact same scenario happened last year between the same two teams when Cam Ward was credited with a goal after Kovalchuk back passed down the ice on a delayed penalty.  Lucky, yes.  Luckier that other goalie goals, no.

I think you missed my main point.  I would argue though that whenever a goalie scores, it's not always because of luck.  There has been a few times where it was because of their good shooting ability.  Not all goalies could should shoot the puck down the ice into a net like Hextall.  Net being empty is lucky I guess, but that's completely different than a scenario where the goalie happened to be the last that touched it.

 

My point on this one is that he was extremely lucky that the play wasn't stopped when he touched the puck.

I disagree that anytime a goalie scores it's luck and would argue this was luckier than several other goaltender's goals, as Marty didn't even shoot this one.  He was just last to touch it.

 

On his and other goals, like Osgood's and Hextalls, they at least actually shot the puck at the empty net and were trying to score. 

 

 

Not really surprising Marty would score again given his puckhandling ability.  I just wouldn't have guessed it'd happen this away.

Right, but if you compare the number of times in a given season there's an empty net, versus the number of times goalies have scored you have to come to the conclusion that luck was involved in each one, if not it would happen more often.  Are some stranger than others?  Sure.  But every time a goalie scores it's strange, so again...splitting hairs. 

 

Edit:  Actually, according to this the majority of goalie tallies have come in the same manner as Brodeur's last night.  As such, statistically it's far "luckier" to shoot the puck and score for a goalie than to score as the last person who touched the  puck before the opposition shot into their own net.

Gravel in my mouth from the 95 Cup final. Also Brodeur off the ice don't get me started. Say 03 finals time period. Sleeping with your wife's sister isn't very classy.
