Julylights: July 19th, Martin Brodeur's Diving Stick Save

Welcome to Julylights, a month long series taking the top plays of the '11-'12 season and giving them to you one a day, every day of the month of July.

This is Martin Brodeur's second appearance in "Julylights", his first spot was at the expense of two Islanders getting robbed point blank, and he does much of the same to Phill Kessel of the Toronto Maple Leafs in today's highlight.

It's crazy to think Brodeur makes some of the saves that he does at 40-years old. Some of the saves he makes would not be made by the young goalies of the NHL, and Brodeur does it with ease.  (Video after the jump)

Is there anything better than Kessel's face after the save, a smile that almost says, "Man I'm going to be on Youtube later tonight." Brodeur recently signed a new two-year contract with the Devils, so hopefully we get to see more saves like these before Brodeur's final curtain call.
