NJD TV Spotlight: Martin Brodeur

newjerseydevils.com – Martin Brodeur spent much of last season adding to his already impressive chapter in Devils history.

By the time 2006-07 was over, he had left an even bigger mark on the NHL's record books.

In his 13th campaign with the Devils, Brodeur recorded 48 wins to eclipse Bernie Parent's previous single-season wins mark of 47, and became the first goaltender in league history to have twice posted back-to-back 40-win seasons.

For Brodeur, it was a sixth 40-win season – no other goaltender has done it more than three times – and he improved to 494 career wins, passing Terry Sawchuk (447) and Ed Belfour (484).

Entering 2007-08, the Montreal native is second only to Patrick Roy's career total of 551.

Brodeur finished the year with a league-leading 78 games played, one short of the all-time single-season record, while also posting a league-best 12 shutouts and logging an NHL-record 4,697 minutes of playing time.

He'll look to add to his win total in the Devils' upcoming regular season, which begins Oct. 4 at Tampa Bay. New Jersey opens its home schedule at the all-new Prudential Center when it hosts Ottawa on Oct. 27.

Newjerseydevils.com now presents some of the netminder's top moments from the past season, as the NJD TV Spotlight shines on No. 30.

Oct. 12: Devils 7, Maple Leafs 6 (SO)
Brodeur made 24 saves for the win, and moved past Terry Sawchuk for sole possession of third place on the league's all-time win's list. Brodeur's stops against Matt Stajan (300K|700K ) and Tomas Kaberle (300K|700K ) helped ensure victory in New Jersey's third game of the season.

Oct. 26: Devils 2, Panthers 0
Oct. 28: Devils 1, Blue Jackets 0
Brodeur posted consecutive blankings for the sixth time in his NHL career, and moved past Jacques Plante for sole possession of fourth place on the league's all-time list with his 83rd career shutout.

Timely saves by Brodeur against Olli Jokinen (300K|700K ) and Juraj Kolnik (300K|700K ) held off Florida's third-period attack on Oct. 26, while stops versus Rick Nash (300K|700K ) and Frederik Modin (300K|700K ) thwarted a late Columbus surge on Oct. 28.

Dec. 6: Devils 2, Canadiens 1 (OT)
A tightly-contested match-up brought career victory No. 461 for Brodeur, who tied Ed Belfour for second on the NHL's all-time wins list with 461. The Devils improved to 10-1-1 at home to tie their fastest-ever start for ten home victories, thanks in part to Brodeur's third-period save on Alexei Kovalev
(300K|700K ) that helped preserve a 1-1 tie.

Dec. 8: Devils 2, Flyers 0
Brodeur's fourth shutout of the season was also the 84th of his career, as he tied Glenn Hall for third place overall on the all-time list. A second-period glove save against Geoff Sanderson  (300K|700K ) protected a 1-0 New Jersey lead.

Dec. 26: Devils 3, Pittsburgh 0
Brodeur made 26 saves for his 85th career shutout to pass Glenn Hall for sole possession of third place on the all-time list. Sidney Crosby was held to just two shots in the game, but Brodeur was up to the task (300K|700K ) against 2007 Calder Trophy winner Evgeni Malkin.

Jan. 4: Devils 4, Islanders 3
New Jersey was outshot 43-26 in the contest, but Brodeur anchored the Devil effort to the tune of a season-high 40 saves against Richard Park (300K|700K ), Brendan Witt (300K|700K ), and the Atlantic Division-rival Islanders.

Jan. 16: Devils 1, Rangers 0
Brodeur's 26 saves included stops on Brendan Shanahan (300K|700K ) and Martin Straka (300K|700K ) as the Devils' goaltender recorded his league-leading eighth shutout of the season.

March 8: Devils 4, Penguins 3 (SO)
Brodeur made 21 saves, including stops on Crosby (300K|700K ) and Ryan Malone (300K|700K ) to reach the 40-win mark for the sixth time in his career.

April 3: Devils 2, Ottawa 1 (SO)
Brodeur nabbed his 47th win and tied Bernie Parent's single-season record for wins with 22 saves, including stops against Jason Spezza (300K|700K ) and Wade Redden (300K|700K ). Brodeur then turned away four of six attempts in the shootout to secure the win.

April 5: Devils 3, Flyers 2
Brodeur stopped 34 shots and surpassed Bernie Parent for wins in a season with 48, as the Devils clinched the Atlantic Division title. Scottie Upshall was denied by Brodeur (300K|700K ), and Jeff Carter was stymied (300K|700K ) in the historic victory.
