potted three goals to help the Devils win their second Stanley Cup.

at both ends of the ice during the regular season earned him the Frank
J. Selke Trophy. Madden's offensive totals dropped in 2001-02, however,
he continued his strong defensive play and rebounded offensively with
a career high 41 points in 2002-03. Madden took his play to another

with 16 points in leading the Devils to their third Stanley Cup title
in nine years.
Since his arrival with the Devils organization in 1997-98, Madden
has been one of the premier two-way players in the NHL.
