Martin Brodeur's debut in a Blues uniform doesn't look right (VIDEO)

For the first time in his NHL career Martin Brodeur made a start for a team other than the New Jersey Devils on Thursday night.

The 42-year-old goalie who won 688 games over 21 years wearing a red Devils sweater was now in front of the goal wearing a St. Louis Blues uniform.

And to Devils fans, like pineapple on a slice, seeing Brodeur sporting a blue note didn't look right.

Brodeur, who hadn't played in a game since April 13, made 20 saves in his season debut for the Blues — a 4-3 loss to the Nashville Predators.

He signed a one-year deal with St. Louis on Tuesday.

The future Hall of Famer who won three Stanley Cups and four Vezina Trophies with the Devils, refused to call it a career after going 19-14-6 with a 2.51 goals-against average, .901 save percentage and three shutouts in 39 games last season.

Brodeur is 688-394-176 and holds most major regular-season goalie records including games (1,259).

It's too bad the Blues and Devils have already played out this season and Mar-tan won't be coming back to Jersey one more time.
