The excellence of Martin Brodeur was on display once again for the New Jersey Devils. The future Hall of Fame goalie is now one win away from tying Patrick Roy for most wins all time by a goalie, with 551 wins. After tonight's 5-2 win over the Phoenix Coyotes Brodeur has 550 all time wins.
2008-2009 has been a wild ride for the goalie, but after returning from a torn bicep, life has been good to Brodeur and the Devils.
Just 18 seconds into the game, Zach Parise scored his 40th goal of the year with assists from Jamie Langenbrunner and Paul Martin to make it 1-0 Jersey.
Later in the opening period, John Madden added his seventh goal of the year to make it 2-0.
In the second period, Dainius Zubrus and Patrick Elias added two more goals to make it 4-1 Devils.
Brodeur had an easy night, recording 26 saves in 28 opportunities. BOXSCORE. The Devils now improve to 43-20-3 on the season, still six points behind Boston for the best record in the Eastern Conference.
