Morning Buzz

Martin Brodeur was credited with this third career goal (if you include playoffs) on Thursday night, and we all seemed to enjoy that. So a quick YouTube search turned up the video above featuring even more goalie goals, including Ron Hextall's, Brodeur's previous goals, and Evgeni Nabokov's.

Buffalo's Tyler Myers had a brutal start to the season and even found himself as a healthy scratch. Perhaps a lot of it was due to him showing up for the season out of shape.

"Yeah, I wanted more," Myers told the Buffalo News. "It's something that had to be addressed. It has been addressed. But you know, I won't be making that mistake again." [Buffalo News]

Larry Murphy was fired by Fox Sports Detroit as a studio analyst because ratings are low. Not sure that's his fault. Every Red Wings game I've ever watched on Fox Sports Detroit I've found him to be a joy to listen to and watch. [Mlive]

On the subject of smaller goalie pads, Maple Leafs goaltender James Reimer told the Hockey News that he play “with shin pads if they go back to Titan wooden sticks.”

Blackhawks goaltender Corey Crawford added that “Shots keep getting harder, but for some reason, goalie equipment has to go down. Whatever. Whatever they do, just try to adjust to it." [Chicago Sun-Times]

Surprising stat of the day: Pascal Dupuis is tied for the league lead in even-strength goals with 14. He's tied with Steven Stamkos.
