Brodeur numbers

A few numbers to put in perspective what New Jersey goalie Martin Brodeur has done over his career and how much Red Wings fans won't miss him in tonight's game at Joe Louis Arena ...

Since taking over in net for the Devils in his sophomore season of 1995, Brodeur has played in 927 of New Jersey's 1042 regular-season games. Pro-rated, that's 73 games per 82-game season. In the history of the NHL, only 16 times has there been a season with more than 73 games played for a goalie not named Martin Brodeur.

Also, Brodeur, who is seven wins behind Patrick Roy for the all-time lead and five shutouts behind Terry Sawchuk for that career record, has posted six of the top 20 single-season wins totals including the record of 48 (set in 2006-07).
