Martin Brodeur tied Patrick Roy's record for regular-season appearances by a goalie Wednesday night when he started for the New Jersey Devils against the Montreal Canadiens.

Roy, who played for Montreal and Colorado, appeared in 1,029 games in his 18-year career. Brodeur is in his 16th season, all with New Jersey.

It marked the second time in two seasons that Brodeur equalled one of Roy's records against Montreal. Brodeur tied Roy for career wins last March, getting his 551st in the Bell Centre. Brodeur has pushed that total to 577 heading into the latest showdown with the hometown team he idolized growing up.
