New Jersey (42-19-3) at NY Islanders (20-37-7), 2:00 p.m. EST
UNIONDALE, New York (Ticker) — It has become a matter of when,
not if, New Jersey Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur will break
Patrick Roy’s record.
Brodeur will be seeking his 549th career win on Saturday when
the Devils visit the New York Islanders.
The future Hall-of-Famer needs three more victories to match
Roy’s all-time record of 551 wins.
In four contests since returning from elbow surgery that forced
him to miss 50 games, Brodeur is unbeaten with two shutouts and
has allowed just four goals.
With 100 shutouts for his career, Brodeur also is three shy of
tying Terry Sawchuk’s all-time mark.
Another blanking isn’t out of the question as the Islanders
enter with a league-low 153 goals.
