Buffalo, N.Y. — Martin Brodeur tied Terry Sawchuk's NHL record with his 103rd shutout, leading the New Jersey Devils to a 3-0 victory over the Buffalo Sabres on Monday night.

Brodeur was rarely tested in making 22 saves to tie Sawchuk, who played from 1949-70.

It was Brodeur's second shutout of the season after he blanked the Carolina Hurricanes on Oct. 17.

The NHL's winningest goalie, Brodeur earned his league-leading 18th victory of the season.

Brian Rolston, Travis Zajac and Niclas Bergfors scored for New Jersey, owners of the best road record at 11-2-1, and a three-game winning streak.
