Roy glad to be there for Brodeur’s big night

MONTREAL — Nobody had to ask Patrick Roy to show up at the Bell Centre on Saturday night. He wanted to be here to witness this piece of history for himself.

The Hall of Famer, who until 9:39 p.m. ET on Saturday held sole possession of the NHL’s all-time record for regular-season victories, seemed genuinely thrilled to welcome someone else into his exclusive club.

Roy is also delighted that soon, perhaps as early as Tuesday night, Martin Brodeur will leave him in his wake by breaking the record — and push it to a level that may never be broken, at least not any time soon.

  1. Like I said, then the Canadiens can offically say that Roy was beat by a “Devil”. 🙂

  2. Yes, Patrick Roy is no longer the “winningest” goalie of hockey, but this was not about that. It is more about his love of the sport and sportsmanship. Roy was genuinely happy to see this event.
