Regular seasonEdit

  • October 14, 2000: In a victory over the expansion Columbus Blue Jackets, Patrick Roy tied Terry Sawchuk for most career wins by a goaltender. [1]
  • October 20, 2000: A pregame ceremony was held to honour Patrick Roy’s 448th career victory. Gary Bettman presented Roy with a goalie stick dipped in silver. On the stick was engraved the name of every building he ever played in. The names of his children were also on the stick. Bill Owens, the Governor of Colorado, proclaimed October 20-26, Patrick Roy week in the state of Colorado. Jerry Sawchuk, Terry’s son, raised Patrick’s arm in the air. [2]
  • February 13, 2001: Patrick Roy made his first visit to Montreal since breaking Terry Sawchuk’s record for most wins by a goaltender. Roy had won 289 games with Montreal, and the Canadiens held a pregame ceremony for Roy. [3]
