'It was the fourth time this season the usually steady Brodeur had been removed from a game. On two occasions it was because of injury, and once, on Oct. 19 against Washington, because he surrendered four goals on 11 shots. But Brodeur was not upset at being pulled. He was genuinely relieved. "I was kind of happy," said Brodeur. "In a game like that, you might as well get some rest."'
