Devils honor 2003 Stanley Cup team
The New Jersey Devils honored their last Stanley Cup-winning team when they saluted the 2003 club prior to Wednesday night's game against the Anaheim Ducks.

The Devils defeated the Ducks in seven games in the 2003 Final to win the third title in franchise history.

Devils goalie Martin Brodeur, who finished 4-3 with a .925 save percentage, 1.73 goals-against average and three shutouts against the Ducks in the '03 Final, remembers the series well.

"Especially when I got a phone call to get Turner (Stevenson) to the rink with his kids this morning," Brodeur said. "I haven't seen him in a long time so it was definitely nice to see that. 2003 was our last Stanley Cup, but it was a great season. We accomplished a lot of great things, and it was the first Cup for Pat Burns as a coach. He's coached in the biggest markets you can imagine, and he won his first Stanley Cup with us in New Jersey. So, a lot of good things, a lot of good friendships that were made – that's what a winning team is all about. Anaheim could tell you the same when they won (in 2007), how close they were when it happened."

Five current Devils -- Patrik Elias, Jay Pandolfo, Jamie Langenbrunner, Colin White and Brodeur -- are holdovers from that championship team. Current Anaheim captain and five-time All-Star defenseman Scott Niedermayer was also a member of that Devils team; his brother Rob, now a member of the Devils but sidelined with an injury, played for Anaheim.

"I guess you'd have to remember playing against my brother (Rob)," Scott Niedermayer said. "That would be the interesting fact of that Stanley Cup Final was he was on the other side (playing for Anaheim). It was a unique experience for both of us."

Scott Niedermayer, who spent the first 13 seasons of his NHL career in New Jersey, is also one of five players to win three titles with the Devils (Brodeur, Sergei Brylin, Ken Daneyko, Scott Stevens). All five were acknowledged by Devils President and GM Lou Lamoriello during his induction speech into the Hockey Hall of Fame on Monday.
