Martin Brodeur sets NHL record for games played by a goaltender

Martin Brodeur owns another line in the NHL Record Book.

Brodeur surpassed Patrick Roy's record for regular-season appearances by a goaltender when he took the ice for the New Jersey Devils against the Ottawa Senators on Friday night at the Prudential Center.

Roy, who played for Montreal and Colorado, appeared in 1,029 games in his 18-year career before retiring in 2003. Brodeur now has played 1,030 games in his 16 seasons, all with New Jersey.

Brodeur matched Roy's mark on Wednesday when he played in the Devils' 2-1 victory over the Canadiens. He broke Roy's record for regular-season victories by beating Chicago on March 17 and surpassed his mark for minutes played on Nov. 27 against Boston.

He is also tied with Terry Sawchuk for the most regular-season shutouts in history, with 103.
Quote of the Day

It's pretty crazy, but believe me when I say we didn't draft these players with the mindset we had to because they had good hockey-playing dads. It just turned out that way. But we're certainly glad they're a part of our organization.
