Martin Brodeur posted his 552nd win tonight and passed childhood idol Patrick Roy for the most career victories by a goalie in NHL history. He made 30 saves in the New Jersey Devils' 3-2 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks. The victory came in Brodeur's 987th game of a 15-year career played entirely with the Devils. "If this continues being fun, I'll stick around for a long time," said Brodeur, 36. (More Martin Brodeur stories.)
