Other notable in Niitty's career:

Early career
First goaltender to record an overtime goal in North American pro-hockey (11 April 2004)
Philadelphia Phantoms' franchise record for first goal by a goaltender
Philadelphia Phantoms' franchise record for lowest career GAA (2.19 GAA)
Philadelphia Phantoms' franchise record for lowest GAA during the postseason (1.75 GAA in 2005)
Philadelphia Phantoms' franchise record for most saves in a period during a playoff game (23 saves, 1st period, 29 April 2005)
Philadelphia Phantoms' franchise record for most saves in the postseason (611 saves in 2005)
Philadelphia Phantoms' franchise record for most shutouts in a season (7 SO in 2003–04)
Philadelphia Phantoms' franchise record for most shutouts in the postseason (3 SO in 2005) tied with Neil Little
Philadelphia Phantoms' franchise record for most wins by a goalie in a season (33 wins in 2004–05)

NHL
National Hockey League record for most consecutive wins, current streak and lifetime, and most lifetime undefeated wins, against a single team, for his streak of 17–0–0 against the Atlanta Thrashers tied with Chris Osgood (whose streak is against the Tampa Bay Lightning)
Philadelphia Flyers' franchise record for most saves in a game (54 on 5 January 2008)
Philadelphia Flyers' franchise record for first shootout win (6 December 2005)
Philadelphia Flyers' franchise record for most losses by a goalie in a season (29 in 2006–07) tied with Bernie Parent
Tampa Bay Lightning's franchise record for most saves in a game (47 on 25 March 2010)

he owns the record for most saves in a game for two different NHL franchises, that's pretty cool actually. How many other goalies can say that.

It's a real shame he couldn't stay healthy.
