Possibly the greatest goaltender that is still donning the pads and being the last line of defense for an NHL franchise is on the verge of breaking the single season shutout record. It won't be easy. 10 shutouts in 46 games played, with 32 games left, there is a chance.
 

News Source Canadian Press
Brodeur, who may be the best puck handler among goaltenders, has made the most of his opportunity playing with one of the league's top defensive teams. His 74 career shutouts rank eighth all-time, two behind Esposito and 29 off the record set by Terry Sawchuk. Brodeur is the only goalie to record four 40-win seasons.

Even though he has not played in all 50 games this season, he may well have a shot. If he gets even close, his teammates will rally around him and try their hardest to get him the record. Only time will tell. George Hainsworth current holds the single season record with 22 shutouts.

He has a great chance of geting this record, his defense always rallies aorund him to get him a certain goal. Just like the 40 win season, there team will get him those wins. And they will get him that record.

Brodeur and his Devils got themselves SHUTOUT 4-0 last night in their own building by the Canucks.

They havent been scoring much and with Scott Stevens out with post-concussion syndrome, Brodeur almost seems human.

GO FLYERS!

How many shut-outs does he have now?

Brodeur has only played in 49 of his teams 53 games. And he is currently at 10 shutouts. At that rate, he will get around 26 more starts and, rounding up, 6 more shutouts. But the games still have to be played. So I am projecting 16 shutouts for the season, which would be 6 short of the mark just to tie.

He will need a shutout in half his games left to get 23.

There is still a chance, with the close games that the Devils play, if it doesnt happen this season it could happen next season as well.

12 shutouts in 32 games? There is NO WAY he is getting that record, especially without his #1 defenseman Stevens. And 12 is just to tie, he really needs 13.

Well Broduer could come pretty close to it. He is a great goalie.
