My kids closed their eyes the last minute or so. Not me. I think I enjoyed this more than 552.



Let's not get carried away! 552 is a much bigger record in the history of the sport. 104 is also big, but overall wins trumps shutouts. Also, I was at 552 and it was a HOME game, so to me, there is no comparison...

What a player.

That is truly a fantastic record.

Its going to take one hell of a netminder to break that record.

Now bring the man a Cup and a Conne Smythe!!!

Just amazing, and fitting it comes in what passes for a big game in December, and also fitting somehow that it comes after the Altanta game. Wonderful stuff.

It's kind of funny and makes the story better that Brodeur let in 3 goals on 6 shots and was pulled in the game before he broke the shutout record.

Just awesome. 552 will always be the best to me (what an atmosphere that night!) but this was such an incredible performance. 35 saves, several of a difficult variety.

I hope everyone remembers moments like this when Marty is near the end.

Obviously on a 1 to 1 basis a win is easier to get. When looking at what record is harder to break, it is a tough call. I think both will last forever to be honest. It would take an excellent goalie to come into the league very young, play on a good team, and not suffer any extended injuries. Even if a goalie played from 20-35 at 40 wins a year (pretty much impossible), that is 600 wins. Marty will finish well above this mark. I do not see how this would be broke. With the same age guidelines as above, it would take 7 shutouts per year or so to break the shutout mark. After further examining this, I think the shutout record might be easier to break. Theoretically your team could not have many wins a year, but 7 shutouts. It is not likely but still a possibility. For example a goalie may average 25-30 wins a year but 7 of them being shutouts. My final verdict is that the shutout record is slightly easier to break than the wins record. The wins records encompasses too many factors for someone to break it. (age breaking into NHL, be on a good team every year, and no injuries)

Marty almost always plays great after a bad game.

ESPN website=NOTHING on Marty

ESPN NHL section=Staal breaking his face tonight...NOT A PEEP on one of the most difficult records in sports to break.

Translation=must be A LOT of Rangers fans who work at ESPN.



Just wanted to make one important edit, that probably will help you understand:

ESPN website=NOTHING worth your time.

+1.

I agree. #552 was very big and seeing it live at the Prudential Center was icing on the cake. #104 is big too and much harder to get but unfortunately it was on the road. I was hoping to see #104 on home ice.

Speaking of 552, Marty is now at 547 for non-shootout wins. Not many people are keeping track of that, but at least when Marty ups that 547 to 552, no one can claim shootout wins were the reason he broke Roy's record. If anyone ever DOES challenge Marty's final win tally (could be very well be 650 or more, and over 600 non-shootout wins), such a challenger could have as many as 100 shootout wins bloating his career total.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

If a goalie can average 7 SOs, he deservers 10 Mil + a year. Doesnt a goalie have to be on the ice the entire game to get a SO? Given that one can still have a bad night and get the win, I think the SO record is more impressive.
Regardless, I think they are both untouchable for a very long time, so no argument there.
