Martin Brodeur gave Patrick Roy some company in the 500 victory club.
Brodeur reached one of hockey’s rarest milestones, stopping all but two shots in a modest effort thanks to some of New Jersey’s usual stout defense and earned his 500th NHL win.
Brodeur made 26 saves in the Devils’ 6-2 win over the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday night and joined Roy as the only goalies in NHL history with that many victories.

“It was a long time coming,” said Brodeur, who finished with 26 saves. “I’m happy it’s done and we can move on now.”
