The Colorado Avalanche: News from around the NHL - March 5th, 2014

David Banks-USA TODAY Sports

Last night Martin Brodeur may have played his last game as a Devil.

Martin Brodeur got the win, the game puck and skated off the ice at the Prudential Center to the fans chanting “We Want Marty.”

Brodeur played Game No. 1,250 of his career as a New Jersey Devil on Tuesday night, a 4-3 win over Detroit. When the day started, it was supposed to be his last, a final chance for fans to bid their three-time Stanley Cup champion hero adieu.

But no. Either the rumours weren’t true, or the trade was squashed or on hold, or the goalie icon came to his senses. No matter which way you sliced it, Brodeur remained a Devil.

So was the win a happy ending? A warm send-off? A showcase of his talents? What the Devil was going on?

“If it was (my last game) I wanted to enjoy it as much as I could,” said Brodeur. “I’m not sure if it was. I had to shut off my phone to concentrate on my game.”

Globe and Mail lists some of the most likely traded.

Well, the frenzy has started, at least in the media.

Now we just have to wait and see if it turns into anything.

As always, theThe Colorado Avalanche: News from around the NHL - March 5th, 2014 lead up to the NHL’s trade deadline has been filled with rumours and speculation, but other than the Ryan Miller to St. Louis blockbuster on Friday, there have been very few actual moves to speak of.

Colorado won last night, and NHL.com's recap has some nice quotes by Roy.

"It was an important game. Like I said before, our objective at the start of the season was to surprise the world of hockey. … I guess we're making it even more interesting," Roy said. "We're one point behind these guys with one game in hand. The players deserve a lot of credit for the effort. Every day we're jumping on the ice with intensity and working hard. I'm just proud of our group. Simple as that."
