newjerseydevils.com – Thirteen years ago today, Martin Brodeur recorded his first career playoff shutout with a 2-0 win over the Boston Bruins in Game 5 of the 1994 Eastern Conference Semifinals.
Brodeur made 22 saves and Corey Millen scored the eventual game-winning goal, as the Devils pushed the Bruins to the brink of playoff elimination. New Jersey would finish them off with a 5-3 win in Game 6.
In 164 career playoff games played, Brodeur has recorded 22 shutouts, and needs just one to tie Patrick Roy for the all-time record of 23.
Brodeur reached No. 22 with a 3-0 blanking of Tampa Bay in Game 5 of the 2007 Quarterfinals. The Devils' goaltender turned away all 31 Lightning shots, and New Jersey advanced to the next round with a 3-2 victory in Game 6.
