EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - Martin Brodeur doesn't think much about the NHL's greatest goaltenders, but he continues catching them career shutout list.
Brodeur recorded his 84th career shutout to tie Glenn Hall for third place overall and the New Jersey Devils beat the Philadelphia Flyers 2-0 for their fourth straight win Friday night.
"I'm moving up in the world of hockey and it's hard to think about all these big names, I'm surpassing," said Brodeur, who earlier this season passed Jacques Plante on the shutout list. "For me, I didn't think I would do that ever. I'm just happy it's happening and I hope it won't be the last guy I pass."
Brodeur made 28 saves in posting his fourth shutout of the season and helping New Jersey improve to 11-1-1 at home. The 34-year-old's best save was a sweeping glove stop on a power-play rebound attempt by Geoff Sanderson with 10:06 left in the second period and the Devils clinging to a 1-0 lead.
"He takes games away from you with saves like that," said Sanderson, who had a team-high six shots for the Flyers.
