Pittsburgh Penguins center Sidney Crosby and Toronto Maple Leafs left wing Niklas Hagman took First and Third Star honors, respectively.
Brodeur posted a 3-0-0 record with a 0.97 goals-against average and .963 save percentage as the Devils improved to 17-6-1 on the season.
He allowed one goal each of his three starts, beginning with a 24-save performance in a 3-1 victory over the Ottawa Senators Nov. 25. He set the NHL record for career minutes by a goaltender in a 2-1 shootout win at Boston Nov. 27, passing Patrick Roy (60,235) in the second period, and closed the week by stopping 22 shots in a 6-1 victory over the New York Islanders Nov. 28.
Brodeur has appeared in 22 of the Devils' 24 games, posting a 15-6-1 record with a 2.05 goals-against average, .925 save percentage and one shutout. He needs one shutout to tie Terry Sawchuk's all-time record (103) and eight appearances to match Roy's mark for career games by a goaltender (1,029).
