However, when it comes to playoffs, King Patrick was still top dog, and arguably remains with his three Conn Smythe Trophies.
He had been tied with Patrick Roy with 23 shutouts for nearly three years, and now he stands alone.
In should be noted, Brodeur's shutout percentage in the playoffs is also an NHL record for goalies, having played 50-plus playoff games. Brodeur captured his 24th shutout in only his 101st victory, while the former Habs and Avalanche great retired with 151.
And while Brodeur is unlikely to ever touch Roy's 151 mark in playoff victories, it remains just one of the few major statistical records Brodeur does not have as a netminder.
The Devils also tied the series with the Panthers at two a piece, and if there's anything Brodeur wants to tie Patrick Roy in more, it's Stanley Cup victories, which he would with a fourth.
