Martin Brodeur doesn't get too excited about regular-season victories, preferring Stanley Cups to savor instead. With 651 career wins and three Cup rings, he's had plenty to celebrate.

But the 39-year-old New Jersey Devils goalie said Thursday's 1-0 shutout win over Jean- Sebastien Giguere and the Avalanche will stay in his memory bank longer than the usual non-playoff win. Four of Brodeur's career postseason victories came against Giguere and the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim in a 2003, seven-game Cup Final.
