NHL GAME OF THE DAY

New Jersey's Martin Brodeur matches another mark by Patrick Roy

The Devils star plays in his 1,029th regular-season game, matching Roy for games by a goalie. New Jersey beats Montreal, 2-1.

December 17, 2009

Newark, N.J. — Martin Brodeur tied Patrick Roy's NHL record for regular-season appearances by a goalie, and Patrik Elias scored the winner in the New Jersey Devils' 2-1 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Wednesday night.

Brodeur played his 1,029th game, all with New Jersey in his 16-year career. Roy played for Montreal and Colorado in his 18-year career.

It marked the second time in two seasons that Brodeur equaled one of Roy's records against Montreal. Brodeur tied Roy for career wins last March, getting his 551st in the Bell Centre. Brodeur has pushed that total to 578.
