Bored Hockey Fan Fantasy League – Fantasy Stanley Cup Playoffs

Quebec Nordiques. DarkSideOfTheMoen. One week to decide just who will skate away with the Stanley Cup.


This is the final week of the Bored Hockey Fan Fantasy League, only one team can walk away with the Cup. Let’s see how both teams got to this point.

Quebec Nordiques decimated their opponents as the third seed going in. They easily accounted for the sixth seeded GreatNessPerSonified 10-1-2, then steamrolled the second seeded It’s The Flying V! 9-3-1 in the semi finals, and went into the final week, as not only the highest seed left, but as favourites,

DarkSideOfTheMoen however struggled, pulling out all the moves to beat arch-rival @GoftheInternet 7-6 in the first round, before beating surprise packet FistCity CaPs 6-5-2 in the semis, after the CaPs upset the #1 seeded Legs in the first round.

So there it is, the third seeded Quebec Nordiques, against the four seed, DarkSideOfTheMoen. It was 3 vs. 4 in the finals last season, with the four seed winning out. Will the four seed take it again this season? Let’s find out if lightning strikes twice for the 4 seed.

New Jersey Devils

Martin Brodeur scores 3rd career goal

GIF by G

Only twelve times prior to this evening in the long, illustrious history of the National Hockey League has a goaltender been credited with a goal.  Ron Hextall and Martin Brodeur were the only goaltenders with multiple goals through their career, tied at two each.  The thirteenth goalie goal in NHL history has broken the tie – Martin Brodeur stands alone as the only goaltender to score three goals in his career.  What’s more, the goal this evening was a Power Play Goal.

The Hurricane’s Patrick Dwyer was hooked as he was heading in to the New Jersey zone, and on the delayed call, Carolina goaltender Dan Ellis headed toward the bench in favor of an extra skater.  As he was skating off, Jordan Staal attempted to pass the puck to defenseman Tim Gleason, who missed the pass, which then careened off of the boards and into the empty Carolina net.  Having been the last Devil to touch the puck, the goal was credited to Brodeur.

No, it’s certainly not often that you see a goalie credited with a goal in a game, but more often than not, it’s number 30 for the New Jersey Devils.  Congrats, Marty!
