Brodeur by the numbers


Martin Brodeur had the Devils leading the Eastern Conference by a point to start the week of March 17.

newjerseydevils.com –
Martin Brodeur continued chasing history over the weekend, notching his 40th win of the season in a 4-2 decision at Colorado on Saturday.

The Devils goaltender has enjoyed a remarkable season and began the week ranking in the top five of every major statistical category. He was second in the league in wins, third in goals-against average (2.15), tied for second in save percentage (.922), and third in shutouts (four).

Now, nearly every game brings Brodeur closer to making history. Here's a primer on some of his current career stats and where he stands in relation to some of the NHL's most cherished records:

3 - Brodeur's 40th victory made him the first goaltender in NHL history ever to reach the 40-win plateau in three consecutive seasons. Brodeur posted back-to-back 40-win campaigns in 1999-2000 (43) and 2000-01(42) before repeating the feat in '05-06 (43) and '06-07 (48).

Four other goalies had previously won 40 in back-to-back seasons (T. Sawchuk, B. Parent, Ken Dryden, M. Kiprusoff).

7 - In his 15th NHL season, the reigning Vezina Trophy winner has extended his own record with a seventh career 40-win campaign. Only Terry Sawchuk (21 seasons) and Jacques Plante (18 seasons) had as many as three.

96 - Brodeur's last shutout (3-0 vs. Phi, Jan. 4) put him within seven of Sawchuk's league record of 103.

534 - He has moved closer to the league's all-time mark for wins with victory No. 534. The Montreal native now needs 18 wins to overtake Patrick Roy's NHL record of 551.

958 - With 67 appearances this season through March 15, Brodeur is within five games of matching Ed Belfour for third on the league's all-time list. Only Roy (1,029) and Sawchuk (971) had more.

56,614 - This season has seen Brodeur move into third all-time for minutes played, passing Belfour (55,695) and Glenn Hall (53,484). Roy (60,235) and Sawchuk (57,194) currently top the list.
