Lavigne coached the club since the 2002-03 season. He will make his coaching debut tonight against St. John's. Roy, who turns 40 on Oct. 5, won four Stanley Cup championships and three Vezina Trophies as the NHL's top goaltender in 19 seasons with the Montreal Canadiens and Colorado Avalanche.

Ed Belfour knows all about the man he tied for second place on the NHL's career victory list. "I had a chance to read his biography," Belfour said after matching Terry Sawchuk with 447 wins last night in Toronto's 2-1 victory over host Florida. "He was a fierce competitor, very acrobatic and obviously very brave, not wearing a mask most of his career. I'm just honored to be tied with him. " Belfour, 40, made 34 saves. Patrick Roy (551) is the all-time leader in wins. Sawchuk was a member of Toronto's last Stanley Cup winner, in 1966-67.

Martin Brodeur silenced all the controversy about his recent slump and a benching against Colorado, and boyhood idol Patrick Roy, by shutting out the best team in hockey. Brodeur had 28 saves and assisted on a empty-net goal in leading the New Jersey Devils to a 2-0 victory over the visiting Florida Panthers last night. "When there is something else bothering you, you probably make a little better effort to put everything else aside and just concentrate on the game," said Brodeur, who had lost his last three starts before having to watch rookie Mike Dunham play against Roy in the Devils' 2-1 loss Saturday night.

Voila! Make that, Roy-la! Patrick Roy can be considered the NHL's greatest goalie in any language.
