TORONTO (Ticker) -- If there was any rust, Martin Brodeur shook

it off pretty quickly.

The future Hall of Famer will continue his impressive return

Tuesday, when the New Jersey Devils host the Toronto Maple

Leafs.

Following a 50-game absence due to elbow surgery, Brodeur is

3-0-0 with two shutouts. The 36-year-old posted his 100th career

shutout with Sunday's 3-0 triumph over the rival Philadelphia

Flyers.

Brodeur became just the second goaltender in NHL history to

reach the milestone, needing three more to tie Terry Sawchuk for

the all-time shutout mark. Brodeur, who has recorded 547

victories, is also just four wins shy of Patrick Roy's career

record.

The Devils, who have won 16 of their last 20 contests, have

given Brodeur plenty of offensive support since his return. New

Jersey has netted 14 goals in its previous three games.

The Maple Leafs are currently on a four-game winning streak.

Defenseman Pavel Kubina tied the score late in the third period

and netted the winner 33 seconds into overtime as Toronto posted

a 4-3 win over the Ottawa Senators on Saturday.

Jamal Mayers also scored and rookie Tim Stapleton netted his

first career goal for the Maple Leafs, who played in their sixth

straight overtime contest.
