In today's game we will likely never see another player play 50 or 60 career games in the Stanley Cup finals. The leader amongst active skaters is New Jersey goalie Martin Brodeur with 24 games. The active leaders in Stanley Cup Finals play are Sergei Fedorov (20 points in 17 games), Chris Chelios (19 points in 20 games) and Patrik Elias (17 points in 20 games).

By the way, Brodeur has won 15 times in his 24 career Finals games. That places him 8th on the all time list behind, Jacques Plante (25 wins in 41 games), Ken Dryden (24 in 32), Turk Broda (21 in 38), Terry Sawchuk (19 in 37), Patrick Roy (18 in 27), Billy Smith (17 in 24) and Clint Benedict (16 in 25).
