Video: Martin Brodeur Makes Acrobatic Save

Martin Brodeur proved he can still make unbelievable saves in a game against the New York Islanders earlier today. Brodeur made a save on Michael Grabner's breakaway, and second swat. But the highlight reel save came when Kyle Okposo tried to bury the rebound and Brodeur made a cart wheel save with his glove. The Islanders went on to win the game by a score of 3-2.

What Each NHL Team Should Be Thankful For


Most teams have eclipsed the 20 games played mark and have the first quarter of the season in their rear view mirror. Some teams have had a better first 20 than others, but every team has something they should be thankful.

So, in the spirit of Thanksgiving here is a team-by-team look at what each team should be thankful for at this point of the season.

Is Revenge On The Sabres' Mind?

The Boston Bruins (12-7-0) will come into the First Niagara Center looking to do one thing, extend their current win streak to a league best ten. The Buffalo Sabres (12-8-0) will try to halt that streak and even the team's season series with the Bruins at one game apiece.

However, a much more intriguing storyline from the teams' first meeting may surface and cause the game to get a little chippy.

Will the Sabres seek revenge for goaltender, Ryan Miller, who was leveled by Milan Lucic of the Bruins in the team's last meeting?

Luke Adam Is Quietly Making A Case For The Calder Trohpy


When it comes to rookies, the league has caught Ryan Nugent-Hopkins fever. He won the honors of October's top rookie via NHL.com and is the main focus of the hockey world, but beneath the shadow of the next great Edmonton Oiler is Luke Adam of the Buffalo Sabres.

While the rest of the league is watching the young gun in Edmonton, Adam has quietly made a push to be considered the league's top rookie.
