BOSTON — If that was the real Martin Brodeur, then maybe something’s wrong with him.
The Bruins did what they had to do tonight to get a win and were the beneficiary of some soft goals allowed by the New Jersey future Hall-of-Famer in a 3-0 win at TD Garden.
Here’s a quick glance at the box score:
•Tim Thomas made 28 saves in recording his fourth shutout of the season and 21 of his NHL career.
•Michael Ryder and Blake Wheeler both scored one goal, but Ryder also drew two penalties and Wheeler one during an active night for the much-maligned forwards.
•Mark Stuart led the way with five hits, most of which were of the bone-rattling variety.
