Brodeur Ties Sawchucks Shutout Record

December 7th was a huge day for New Jersey Devils goalie Martin Brodeur. It was a day that will never be forgoton. He tied Terry Sawchucks all time shutout record with 103 shutouts. They played the Buffalo Sabres and won 3-0. Brodeur faced a total of 22 shots. This was his second shutout of the season and he only needs one more to be the new record holder for most shutouts.

The next closest active goalie is Chris Osgood of the Detroit Red Wings with 50 shutouts. If Brodeur plays 4 more games he will have tied Patrick Roy's record for most games played. Brodeur now holds the record for: most wins, tied for most shutouts, and extremely close to most games played.

Brodeur has been having a great season so far. He has a GAA of 2.11 and a SV% of 0.922. He also has the most wins of all NHL goalies this season so far. He has posted 18 wins in only 26 games.
