Martin Brodeur Earns 500th Win

Martin Brodeur is truly one of the greatest hockey goalies around and Saturday night he reached a truly remarkable milestone. Brodeur reached one of hockey's rarest milestones, stopping all but two shots in a modest effort thanks to some of New Jersey's usual stout defense and earned his 500th win. Brodeur made 26 saves in the Devils' 6-2 win over the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday night and joined Roy as the only goalies in NHL history with that many victories. Brodeur's overall record is 500-273-105-15.

Brodeur has been on the New Jersey Devils for 14 seasons and led the franchise to three Stanley Cup titles. While he has an abnormally high number of losses this season (10), the 35-year-old Brodeur is still on pace to pass Roy on the career win list (551) at some point next season. Congrats to Martin Brodeur.
