Calgary (39-21-6) at New Jersey (42-20-3), 7:00 p.m. EDT
NEWARK, New Jersey (Ticker) — Martin Brodeur and the New Jersey
Devils look to bounce back from one of their worst performances
of the season when they host the Calgary Flames on Tuesday.
A four-time Vezina Trophy winner, Brodeur is three wins from
tying Hall of Fame netminder Patrick Roy’s all-time record of
551. The 36-year-old Brodeur also needs three shutouts to pull
even with Terry Sawchuk’s all-time mark of 103.
Brodeur’s record chase was put on hold during Saturday’s 7-3
drubbing at the hands of the lowly New York Islanders. He
surrendered six goals before being pulled at the end of the
second period for Kevin Weekes.
The Devils had won four in a row and nine of 11 before suffering
their worst defensive outing of the campaign.
Calgary, which is in third place in the crowded Western
Conference, has dropped two in a row – including Sunday’s 5-2
setback to the Atlanta Thrashers. The Flames have been
outscored, 11-3, in their last two contests.
