Not all that long ago, Gordie Howe's 801 goals and Terry Sawchuk's 103 shutouts were deemed to be records that would stand the test of time. Then along came Wayne Gretzky and Martin Brodeur, who dropped the former Detroit teammates back to No. 2 in their respective categories.
Players like Gretzky and Brodeur have set standards for the players of today and tomorrow to shoot at. But there are some records that don't figure to be broken for a long time, if ever. Here are a few of them.
Most consecutive complete games by a goaltender: Glenn Hall, 502
Hall was as brilliant as he was durable -- a combination that landed him in the Hockey Hall of Fame.
Hall took the ice for the Detroit Red Wings on opening night in 1955-56 and played all 70 games. He did the same thing the following season. The Wings sent him to Chicago in the summer of 1957, and he played all 70 games for the Hawks for five consecutive seasons, leading Chicago to a Stanley Cup in 1961.
