...More numbers
On his own level: The 524 goaltenders who have played in the NHL since Terry Sawchuk set the all-time shutout record in 1964 have posted a total of 3,795 shutouts. Of those 524 goaltenders, 88% have recorded fewer than 20 shutouts and 98% have recorded fewer than 50.
Close, but no cigar: Brodeur has had seven games in which he was working on a shutout but gave up his first goal in the last minute of the third period (five) or in overtime (two).
Missed opportunity: On Nov. 9, 1996, Mike Dunham replaced Brodeur for 41 seconds of a 4-0 shutout of the New York Islanders. Brodeur therefore did not get credit for a shutout.

I've been getting frustrated lately, and the only thing keeping me sane was the team winning and other people stepping up and scoring. Then you just kind of let it go and realize you can end the series with one shot, that frustration goes away for a brief moment, and that's what happened.
