VIDEO: Devils' Brodeur becomes NHL record holder for career goals against

By Mike McMahon

On March 26, 1992, New Jersey Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur surrendered the first goal of his NHL career in the midst of a 4-2 win over the Boston Bruins.

On Thursday night, 22 years and one day later, Brodeur has allowed more goals (2,757) than any netminder in NHL history after giving up a second-period tally to Chris Summer in the Devils' 3-2 OT loss to the Phoenix Coyotes.

Passing Gilles Meloche and Grant Fuhr in the career GA department may not be the most prestigious of Brodeur's many records, awards (including four Vezina Trophies), or accolades, but can console himself with being the NHL's all-time wins leader (686). Given that he's appeared in a record 1,256 games -- 226 more than any other goaltender in NHL history -- the red light record was inevitable.

Brodeur, 41, has spent his entire career with New Jersey after being picked in the first round of the 1990 NHL Entry Draft, and to his credit, he's also scored two regular season goals (plus another in the playoffs) and 44 career points.
