Marty only needs 13 more wins to break Patrick Roy’s record of most NHL wins by a goalie in the regular season and only 8 more shutouts to do the unthinkable in breaking Terry Sawchuk’s record for most regular season shutouts in the NHL.
“Yeah, I think about it,” Brodeur said. “I think that’s going to be one of the things that I’ll be really excited about. You know, winning the most games is what it’s all about. When you’re playing hockey, you play to win. For a goalie, it’s a beautiful thing because when you win everybody’s happy around you. So it’s not a selfish thing. It’s like, well, you scored 500 goals or whatever. For a goalie, it’s all about wins.
“And so when I will hit that record, if I do, it’s going to be quite an accomplishment. But I’ve been playing a lot of years, playing a lot of hockey, a lot of games, to be able to get close to Patrick. And I think it’s to his credit for him to be able to push that record so high. And it will be definitely a tough one to reach.”
