Martin Brodeur stands alone among NHL goaltenders.
Brodeur posted his 552nd win and passed childhood idol and Hall
of Famer Patrick Roy for the most career victories in league
history. He made 30 saves in the New Jersey Devils' 3-2 victory
over the Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday night.
The victory came in Brodeur's 987th game in a 15-year career
played entirely with the Devils.
Now he holds the wins record, and others could soon fall. He is
within four shutouts of passing Terry Sawchuk (103) for the league
record, and at 36-years-old he has a chance to push his win total
well beyond 600.
