After earning his eighth career nomination as a finalist for the Vezina Trophy, Brodeur captured the award for the fourth time in five seasons. He posted a 44-27-6 record with a 2.17 goals-against average and a .920 save percentage in 2007-08 and was among the league leaders in victories, and minutes played. During the season he became only the second goaltender in NHL history to record 500 wins, following only Patrick Roy. He extended NHL records by recording his third consecutive and seventh career 40-win season, and 10th consecutive campaign with 70-or-more games. New York's Henrik Lundqvist and San Jose's Evgeni Nabokov were award runner-ups.
