JOSEPH TIES JACQUES PLANTE FOR 5TH PLACE
ON NHL'S ALL-TIME WINS LIST

Phoenix Coyotes goaltender Curtis Joseph captured his 437th career victory on Saturday night to tie Hall of Famer Jacques Plante for 5th place on the NHL's all-time wins list. Joseph made 40 saves in the game - an 8-0 shutout win over the San Jose Sharks at Jobing.com Arena.

In his second season with Phoenix, Joseph earned his 41st victory as a Coyote tonight. The Keswick, Ontario native began his career with the St. Louis Blues (1990-1995) with whom he collected 137 wins over six seasons. Joseph went on to record 76 wins with the Edmonton Oilers from 1996-1998, 133 wins with the Toronto Maple Leafs from 1998-2002 and 50 wins with the Detroit Red Wings from 2002-2004.

Joseph ranks 3rd in wins among active goaltenders, trailing only New Jersey's Martin Brodeur with 468 career victories and Florida's Ed Belfour with 466 wins. The 39-year-old netminder also collected his 48th career shutout tonight - 22nd most in league history and 4th most among active goaltenders.

Joseph's career record during his 17 NHL seasons is 437-324-90-36.

Joseph made his NHL debut for St. Louis on Jan. 2, 1990 versus Edmonton and recorded his first career victory on Jan. 30, 1990 against the New York Islanders.
