The New Jersey Devils and New York Islanders will play their 2nd-to-last game of the season at the Prudential Center tonight.

Martin Brodeur will be getting the start tonight in what could potentially be his last start for the New Jersey Devils in his career. Pete DeBoer was quick to say that he is not sure about Sunday’s starter but one would assume Brodeur would get the nod.

The last two games could be the goodbye tour one way or the other as Brodeur has also hinted at retirement if a “comfortable” situation doesn’t present itself. Sunday is definitely a game that you will want to tune in to.

Guys like Mark Fayne could also be seeing their last days here. Once the final horn sounds on Sunday, the guessing games will begin.

If this really is the last couple of games for Mr. Brodeur with the Devils, there will definitely be tons of coverage on Marty’s Legacy with the New Jersey Devils on Pucks and Pitchforks.

It’s not every day that you can say arguably the best goaltender of all time played for your team.

I would say the same for a Hall-of-Famer like Jaromir Jagr but, truth is, he has played for quite a few teams.

Tonight’s game will be on 2 MSG channels and NBCSN. I am not sure if Doc Emerick is doing the game tonight but I would assume he will be there for the NBC broadcast of the Devils, Bruins game on Sunday.
