NHL roundup: Brodeur sets record

Associated Press
NEWARK, N.J. ó Martin Brodeur stands alone among NHL goaltenders.
Brodeur posted his 552nd win and passed childhood idol Patrick Roy for the most career victories in league history. He made 30 saves in the New Jersey Devils’ 3-2 win over the Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday night.
The victory came in Brodeur’s 987th game of a 15-year career played entirely with the Devils.
During that tenure, the likable Brodeur has led the Devils to three Stanley Cup titles and won the Vezina Trophy four times as the league’s top goalie.
Now he holds the wins record, and others could soon fall. He is within four shutouts of passing Terry Sawchuk (103) for the league record, and at 36 he has a chance to push his win total well beyond 600.
Capitals 3, Panthers 0
SUNRISE, Fla. ó Jose Theodore made 19 saves in his second shutout of the season.
Brooks Laich and Viktor Kozlov scored for Washington, which earned its fourth win in five games.
Red Wings 3, Flyers 2
DETROIT ó Johan Franzen and Henrik Zetterberg scored 1:32 apart in the third period to wipe out a one-goal deficit.
Detroit hasn’t lost to Philadelphia at home since Nov. 4, 1988. The Red Wings are 14-0-2 in the series during that stretch.
Penguins 6, Thrashers 2
PITTSBURGH ó NHL scoring-leader Evgeni Malkin tied a career-high with five points to surpass 100 for the second straight season. Malkin, who missed practice Monday due to illness, had two goals and three assists to give him 102 points this season.
He extended his lead in the scoring race over teammate Sidney Crosby to 10 points.
Rangers 4, Canadiens 3 (SO)
MONTREAL ó Chris Drury scored the deciding goal in the shootout after Markus Naslund and Nik Antropov beat Carey Price on New York’s first two attempts.
New York, which blew three one-goal leads, moved one point ahead of Montreal in a tightly contested race for the final playoff spots in the Eastern Conference.
Maple Leafs 4, Lightning 3 (SO)
TAMPA, Fla. ó John Mitchell scored the Maple Leafs’ first goal in the second period and the winner in the shootout.
Wild 3, Avalanche 2, SO
ST. PAUL, Minn. ó Marek Zidlicky scored the shootout winner over Peter Budaj’s glove, and Nick Schultz scored the tying goal with less than two minutes left in regulation.
Senators 4, Sabres 2
OTTAWA ó Brendan Bell scored twice and the Senators won the season series 5-1.
