New Jersey’s Brodeur gets 101st career shutout

NEWARK, N.J. – Martin Brodeur is closing in on another record.

In his first appearance since breaking the NHL victory record, Brodeur made 35 saves in the New Jersey Devils’ 4-0 win over the Minnesota Wild on Friday night for his 101st shutout, just two behind Terry Sawchuk’s mark.

“It’s a lot of shutouts,” Brodeur said. “That record is proof of commitment by an organization to play well defensively. You can’t do it by yourself. With the amount of shutouts that I’ve got, you’ve got to consider that the team is doing the right things.”

Patrik Elias scored twice, giving him 30 for the season, and Brian Gionta and Johnny Oduya added goals to help the Devils extend their team-record home winning streak to 11.

Red Wings 6, Thrashers 3: At Atlanta, Marian Hossa scored his 36th goal for Detroit in his first game in Atlanta since the Thrashers traded him to Pittsburgh last season, and Johan Franzen had a goal and two assists for the Red Wings.

Chris Osgood stopped 31 shots to earn his fourth consecutive victory. The Red Wings, who lead the NHL with 105 points, have won five straight on the road to improve to 22-10-5 away from Joe Louis Arena.

Penguins 4, Kings 1: At Pittsburgh, Sidney Crosby and NHL scoring leader Evgeni Malkin each had a goal and an assist for Pittsburgh.

Flyers 6, Sabres 4: At Buffalo, N.Y., former Buffalo captain Daniel Briere scored twice in 2:05 span in the second period for Philadelphia.

Hurricanes 5, Islanders 4: At Raleigh, N.C., Chad LaRose and Matt Cullen each scored two goals, and Carolina extended its home winning streak to seven games.

Oilers 5, Blackhawks 4, SO: At Chicago, Patrick O’Sullivan and Ales Kotalik scored in a shootout to give Edmonton its third straight win.

Blues 3, Flames 2: At Calgary, Alberta, Andy McDonald and Jay McClement scored in a 51-second span midway through the third period.

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
