Brodeur ties Parent\'s mark on \'15 to Remember\'

Brodeur's four shootout stops included this glove save on Dany Heatley.

newjerseydevils.com – On a different night, the show might have belonged to John Madden.

But with history in reach, Martin Brodeur owned the stage.

This week's "15 to Remember" on FOX Sports Net New York (Wednesday, 8 p.m.) takes fans back to April  3 for the Devils' 2-1 shootout win over the Ottawa Senators.

Brodeur made 22 saves, and stopped four of six shootout attempts, to post his 47th win and tie Bernie Parent's 33-year-old record for single-season victories.

Madden scored New Jersey's lone goal in regulation, then registered the deciding shootout tally against Ottawa goaltender Ray Emery, as the Devils tied a franchise record with their 48th win of the season.

"It's amazing. I never thought I would be able to get that far into the wins in a season," Brodeur said. "I've met Bernie and through the years I got to appreciate how hard it is to get to that 47 plateau. Even with the shootouts, it's still a lot of wins and you have to play a lot of games."

The Devils moved to within one point of clinching the Atlantic Division, and Brodeur to within one win of eclipsing a mark that had stood since 1974.

"I think it's a tremendous accomplishment, what this young man has done this season and throughout his whole career," Devils CEO/President/GM Lou Lamoriello said of Brodeur. "It's just amazing to me. Watching him in that shootout tonight, with that focus and concentration throughout the game, that's the way he's been all year. That whole room is as excited as it could possibly be for him."
