Parise Sees A Lot Of Chara

from Tom Gulitti of Fire & Ice,

“Going into the game, we knew we were going to be seeing a lot of him (Chara), our line was,” Parise said. “A few times, we were able to get in there, but I think we’ve got to do a better job against him. We have played well against him before in the last couple of games, but tonight we couldn’t get much going.”

Devils coach Brent Sutter said it’s up to Parise to fight through that sort of thing and not his teammates to protect him.

“Every time someone gets touched, it’s a big deal because someone gets touched,” Sutter said. “Your best players have to play through some things too. This time of the season and come playoffs, you’re going to have to take punches to the head for the benefit of the team. Did he intimidate us? He certainly didn’t intimidate us out there. He’s a competitor and Zach has to learn to play through stuff too. That’s part of being a good player. You’ve got to play through some things maybe you don’t like. You have to fight through it. I’m not saying he doesn’t. I’m just saying that every time someone gets hit in a game doesn’t mean you have to respond or a positive or negative way either. We know how to handle that. It’s not like we don’t know how to handle these things.”

Brodeur Chasing Shutout Record

from Mark Everson of the NY Post,

One giant record broken, the other wobbling. They should attach the replacement netting to Martin Brodeur’s goal cage with Velcro, just to save us all time.

“I think it’s going to be this year,” Devils center Travis Zajac said of the timetable for Brodeur breaking Terry Sawchuk’s 40-year-old NHL record of 103 shutouts.

Fresh from one successful record chase, Brodeur started his second hunt of the month with his fifth shutout in 20 starts this season and the 101st of his career, a 4-0 triumph over the Wild in Newark last night.

“It could be a long time if you guys are going to start that [hoopla],” the Gretzky of Goalies warned.

A Recap Of Brodeur’s Night

Update 1:55pm ET: From Ken Campbell of The Hockey News, a look at Brodeur’s history:

Brodeur’s beginnings were not quite as inauspicious, but he certainly wasn’t thought of as a future superstar in the league. In fact, Brodeur was the decidedly second consensus pick in that draft to Trevor Kidd, who went to the Calgary Flames 11th overall.

At that time, our annual Draft Preview edition profiled the top 60 prospects, but only the top 21 – which consisted of the first round of the draft back then – were ranked in order. The other 39 were ranked in alphabetical order and Brodeur, who was projected to be a second-round pick, was among that group.

Brodeur Wins

from Phil Coffey of NHL.com,

Martin Brodeur stands alone.

The New Jersey Devils’ standout goalie earned his 552nd victory, the most wins ever by an NHL goalie, Tuesday night at Prudential Center, besting the Chicago Blackhawks 3-2 before a raucous crowd that chanted “Marty, Marty” and “Marty’s better” throughout the game.

continued

After the game, Brodeur, with a little help from his teammates, cut the net away from the posts.  Probably will make a very nice keepsake.

Preparing For Brodeur

from NHL.com,

It’s a beautiful spring day here in Newark. Temperatures are likely in the high 50s and there was no need for anything stronger than a sport coat on the three-block walk to Scully’s for lunch. On the way back, right around 3 p.m., we saw close to 100 fans waiting outside the box office, hoping to snatch up the $10 day-of-game tickets put on sale before every home game.

It was cool to see that level of excitement and passion and just further stoked the fires for what hopefully will be a historic night.

more and NHL.com will be blogging for the rest of the night at the same link, just in case you want to check in throughout the evening.

Boston Goalies Talk Broduer

from Matt Kalman of The Bruins Blog,

To Boston Bruin goaltender Manny Fernandez, New Jersey Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur’s breaking of Patrick Roy’s all-time wins record — which could occur Tuesday night against Chicago or any time over the next week or so now that Brodeur tied the record Saturday — is about more than just replacing the name of one great goaltender with another on the top of a list.

Fernandez thinks it’ll help Brodeur get his full due.

“He seemed to be a little bit in (Roy’s) shadow. And now he’s come around, he’s actually beating some of his records, people are starting to notice him a little more and talk about him,” Fernandez recently told TheBruinsBlog.net. “He’s a great goalie. He was born to play that sport; you can see that. He’s a guy that doesn’t get overstressed. He could be playing in a Game 7 and still look like it’s practice. That’s what you need.”

Brodeur One Win Away From All-Time Wins Record

from the CP via TSN,

Martin Brodeur dominated Patrick Roy’s former team to draw even with the Hall of Fame netminder atop the career wins list.

Brodeur stopped 21 shots to tie Roy with his 551st career regular-season victory as the New Jersey Devils beat the Montreal Canadiens 3-1 on Saturday night.

Facing the team he idolized as a child, Brodeur was nearly perfect, allowing only Tomas Plekanec’s goal at 12:29 of the first period.

With Roy in attendance, Brodeur held Montreal scoreless the rest of the way for his seventh win in eight games since returning from a serious elbow injury. Brodeur was given a standing ovation by the Montreal fans at the end of the game.

The four-time Vezina Trophy winner will have a chance to break the record Tuesday when the Devils entertain the Chicago Blackhawks.
