Martin Brodeur posts career shutout #112 as Devils beat Montreal

The New Jersey Devils have two wins this season due to Martin Brodeur’s ability to shut teams out.

Brodeur made 29 saves for his 112th career shutout and Jason Arnott had a goal and an assist to lead New Jersey to a 3-0 win over the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday night in Montreal.

The NHL’s career leader in wins and shutouts protected the 2-0 lead against a good Montreal team to post his 604th win.

Brodeur also stopped 24 shots against Buffalo on October 13 which resulted in a 1-0 victory.

Brodeur is 39-16-5 against Montreal in his career with nine shutouts, the most he has had against an opponent outside of the Atlantic Division. He has 10 shutouts against the Flyers and nine against the Islanders.

New Jersey Devils select John MacLean as their new head coach

compiled from staff, wire and NHL reports

After four tries, John MacLean is the new head coach of the New Jersey Devils.

A perennial candidate to lead the team he played for and coached as an assistant, MacLean was named the head coach of the New Jersey Devils on Thursday, replacing Jacques Lemaire, who retired.

MacLean was considered for the top job with the devils on three other occasions, but lost out to Claude Julien (2006), Brent Sutter (2007) and Lemaire (2009).

MacLean spent last season coaching the Devils’ American Hockey League affiliate in Lowell, Massachusetts and led the team to its only playoff appearance in four years. That had followed seven years as a Devils assistant.

One of the items on MacLean’s immediate to-do list, is to reverse the Devils’ most recent postseason history.  Since winning their third Stanley Cup in a nine-year span in 2003, the Devils have not made it past the second round in the playoffs. Last season, they lost to Philadelphia in five games in the Eastern Conference quarterfinals.

New Jersey had won its second straight Atlantic Division title with its 12th 100-point season in 15 years, but scored just nine goals in the five postseason games and allowed the flyers to convert 8 of 29 power-play chances.

New Jersey Devils head coach Jacques Lemaire retires at age 64

Jacques Lemaire says that the energy and thrill is gone, so he is retiring from coaching.

Just a few days after the New Jersey Devils were eliminated from the playoffs in the first round for the third straight year, the 64-year-old Lemaire made the surprising announcement that he was retiring.

Lemaire said that he has thought about retiring several times this season  and that losing to the Philadelphia Flyers in the playoffs had nothing to do with his decision at all.

Devils president Lou Lamoriello said that Lemaire, who is a 1984 Hockey Hall of Fame for his playing career, will stay on with New Jersey in a role that will be determined later.

As far as replacements, Lamoriello has not put together a list of candidates but there are several who have been rumored to be in the hunt: John MacLean, the coach of the Devils’ top farm team (Lowell of the AHL), and Hall of Fame defenseman Scott Stevens, who was an assistant this season.

LeMaire coached 16 seasons in the NHL with Montreal, New Jersey and Minnesota, posting a 588-441 won-lost record. His teams also played 124 ties and lost 60 games in overtime or shootouts.

He won the Jack Adams award as the league’s top coach in 1994 and 2003. This past winter, he was an assistant coach on Canada’s gold medal-winning team at the Vancouver Olympics.

The Devils won the Atlantic Division this past season with a 47-27-7 record, putting them as the number 2 seed in the Eastern Conference. But they were clearly outplayed by the Flyers, the number 7 seed, who beat them nine out of 11 games this season.

Devils shutout Atlanta as Martin Brodeur wins 600th game

compiled from staff, wire reports and New Jersey Devils

New Jersey Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur says that win number 600 is no big deal. He says, “A win’s a win”.

The veteran goalie reached that milestone with another shutout of the Atlanta Thrashers 3-0 Tuesday night in the Philips Arena in Atlanta.

New Jersey moved into sole possession of first place in the Atlantic Division and second place in the Eastern Conference. The 37-year-old Brodeur improveed to 10-2-2 against Atlanta.

The game was also the first time that Ilya Kovulchuk returned to Atlanta to play against his former team. He was traded on February 4.


* The Atlanta Thrashers announced two team awards Center Marty Reasoner was voted best team player by teammates.

* Johan Hedberg accumulated the most points from being named a star, one of the three stars of the game voting after games.

New Jersey power play and Martin Brodeur too much for the CBJ

Martin Brodeur, goaltender for the New Jersey Devils, seems to be setting records and breaking records every game he plays. He’s also making it difficult for his own records to be broken in the years to come.

Brodeur made 19 saves Tuesday night in New Jersey’s 6-3 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets. The victory gave him a 40-win season for thee eighth time. No other National Hockey League goalies have had more than three seasons.

His next milestone that he is after, 600 wins. The NHL career leader in victories is only three away from that mark. Earlier in the year, Brodeur supassed Terry Sawchuk as the league’s shutout king. Broduer has 108 shutouts.

The Devils gave Brodeur plenty of offense against Columbus as their mostly-dormant power play woke up and produced their first three goals. Travis Zajac and Zach Parise each scored twice and Ilya Kovalchuk had a goal and three assists in helping the Devils jump over Pittsburgh and into first place in the Atlantic Division. New Jersey and Pittsburgh both have 90 points, but New Jersey have won one more win than the Penguins and have played one fewer game.


* It was a showdown between Martin Brodeur and Steve Mason, who grew up idolizing the Devils goaltender.

* A pair of Devils defensemen reached games played milestones: Bryce Salvador 600 and Andy Greene 200.

* Columbus became the last team to visit the Prudential Center.

* The Devils are 6-2-2 vs. the Blue Jackets.
