It wasn't one of the most taxing games Curtis Joseph has ever played, but it will certainly be one of his most memorable. After coming up short in his first two attempts at one of the NHL's elite milestones, Joseph became only the ninth goalie in the history of the league to win 400 games when the Coyotes got past the Calgary Flames 3-2 in front of 13,459 at Glendale Arena. 'Better sooner than later because sometimes milestones, they seem tougher and tougher to get once you start talking about them,' said Joseph, who reached the plateau in his 806th game. 'I'm happy that we came out and played arguably our best game of the year and a lot of credit to these guys.' Coach Wayne Gretzky added: 'To accomplish something like that in this era is pretty special.' Joseph faced only 15 shots (compared to 34 for Calgary goalie Philippe Sauve) and only eight through the first two periods. 'I was talking to Grant Fuhr, and they come in all shapes and sizes, the wins,' said Joseph referring to Phoenix's goalie coach who is just ahead of Joseph on the all-time wins list at 403. 'Tonight it was a little different with not very many shots for two periods. It was a strange one, and we found a way to win.'
