Patrick Roy became the second-youngest goaltender to reach 300 victories with the help of Peter Forsberg's hat trick as the Colorado Avalanche defeated the Edmonton Oilers 7-5 Monday night.
Roy, slightly more than five months past his 30th birthday, was denied in his two previous attempts at 300. The late Terry Sawchuk, the victory leader with 447, was two months past his his 30th birthday when he reached 300.
Roy became the 12th goalie to reach 300. He came to the Avalanche this season after forcing a trade from Montreal, where he won 277 games and two Stanley Cups.
