Many a true word hath been spoken in jest

From Tom Gulitti's indispensable Fire and Ice blog, here's Devils winger Brian Gionta on becoming the Devils' fifth 20-goal scorer this year:

"I would have had 40 if I had a different center," Gionta joked. "[Dainius Zubrus] should win the Selke for shutting me down."

Now that's a pretty good joke - especially for an athlete - but when he skated on a line with Scott Gomez, Gionta set the all-time Devils record for goals in a season with 48. Zubrus, on the other hand, who was brought to the team to be its top line center, is currently 7th on the team in assists, and 8th in goals.

Ha ha.
