BUFFALO, N.Y. — Martin Brodeur tied Terry Sawchuk's NHL record with his 103rd shutout, leading the New Jersey Devils to a 3-0 victory over the Buffalo Sabres on Monday night.
Brodeur was rarely tested in making 22 saves to tie Sawchuk, who played from 1949-70. It was Brodeur's second shutout of the season after he blanked Carolina on Oct. 17.
The NHL's winningest goalie, Brodeur earned his league-leading 18th victory of the season. He preserved the shutout with a lightning-quick glove stop on Buffalo defenseman Steve Montador's wrist shot from the slot 5 minutes into the third period.
Brian Rolston, Travis Zajac and Niclas Bergfors scored for New Jersey (20-7-1), owners of the best road record (11-2-1) and a three-game winning streak.
