Congratulations Cujo for win #450

To say Curtis Joseph has had a disappointing season is a bit of an understatement. Coming into lat night's game against Atlanta, he'd appeared in eight games, posted an 0-4-1 record, a 4.12 goals against average and a .843 save percentage.

And he'd been waiting for win No. 450 on his career all season, a milestone he finally reached in a 4-3 overtime victory in front of an adoring home crowd. In honour of the milestone he was named first star of the game. He stays in fourth all-time in sinds behind, Patrick Roy, Martin Brodeur, and Ed Belfour. This might be an appropriate time to say farewell. I don't see many more high points in Cujo's career from here on until he is inducted in the Hall of Fame.
