newjerseydevils.com – Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur, has been named the NHL's 'First Star' for the week ending March 15.

Brodeur tied Patrick Roy as the NHL's all-time victories leader and helped the Devils continue their charge up the Eastern Conference standings, posting a 3-0-0 record with a 1.67 goals-against average and .943 save percentage.

Brodeur began the week by making 35 saves in a 3-2 victory over the Calgary Flames Mar. 10, stopped 26 shots in a 5-2 win over the Phoenix Coyotes Mar. 12 and turned aside 22 shots in a 3-1 decision over the Montreal Canadiens Mar. 14 for his 551st career victory, matching Roy's record total.

A winner in seven of eight starts since returning from a torn bicep tendon that required surgery, Brodeur has backstopped the Devils (45-20-3) to within six points of the first-place Boston Bruins in the Eastern Conference standings. Brodeur's first chance to pass Roy is Tuesday against the Chicago Blackhawks at Prudential Center.

Calgary's Olli Jokinen and Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby were named the League's Second and Third Stars, respectively.
