What was the most wins by a goalie in a single season in the NHL?
Brodeur of the New Jersey Devils holds the single
season NHL record for the most wins, winning 48 games during the 2006-07 season
but there is a catch.
With the overtime and shootout rules it meant that there were no ties, all games
had a decision which helped Martin
Brodeur accomplish this feat.
In our opinion Bernie Parent has the best win record
for a single season, during the 1973-74 season with the Philadelphia Flyers
Bernie Parent appeared in 73 games recording 47 wins, 13 losses and 12 ties.
Out of the 73 games Bernie Parent
played 60 were not ties and he won 78.33% of them which means that at that rate
he would have won another 9.4 games and rounding down, that works out to 56 wins
for the season.
Brodeur's winning percentage was a mere 61.5%.
During the 2006-07 season Roberto Luongo of the Vancouver Canucks
tied Bernie Parent's record, registering 47 wins as well. Roberto Luongo played
in only 76 games so his winning percentage was a bit better than Martin
Brodeur's, but at 61.8% still well short of that posted by Bernie Parent.
