It’s hard not to feel like we’re in the looking back at better times/”smelling the roses” phase of Martin Brodeur‘s career, but he sure has a lot to reminisce about. Worst case scenario, the 2012 playoffs allowed the future Hall of Famer to accomplish at least one rare feat: he can cross “100th career playoff win” off his dwindling hockey bucket list as the Devils edged the Panthers 3-2.

This win strengthens Brodeur’s hold on second place all-time in playoff wins with Grant Fuhr in third at 92. (Marc-Andre Fleury is the closest active goalie at 41, to give you some added perspective.)

Unfortunately for Brodeur, it’s borderline unthinkable for him to pass his former contemporary rival Patrick Roy, who towers over all competitors at No. 1 with 151 playoff wins. (Marty would max out at 115 if the Devils won the 16 games to win a Stanley Cup this year, for what it’s worth.)

    666 wins. The only milestone he needs. 10 more wins as Devils backup next year, retires halfway through the year just to make all right in the universe
