Qzzie Wins His 400th!

Chris Osgood won his 400th game tonight with a 4-3 overtime win versus the Colorado Avalanche in Colorado.  Osgood was the #1 star of the game turning away 46 of 49 Avalanche shots.  Osgood was stellar during the second period.

Tonight, Osgood became only the 10th goalie to ever win 400 games.

Ozzie has won three Stanley Cups, of which in two of them (1998 and 2008), he was the starting goalie.

Of the other nine to win 400 games, seven are in the Hockey Hall of Fame.  Only two, Curtis Joseph and Marty Broudure (still active) are not in the HHOF.

Is hockey’s Rodney Dangerfield (I get no respect! ) Hall worthy?  Is 400 wins equal to 500 or 600 goals? Should three cups and 400 wins make him automatic entry to the HHOF?
