...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.
Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
