The last time the New Jersey Devils visited the Florida Panthers, they eliminated them from the opening round of the playoffs in dramatic fashion.
Two games after getting Martin Brodeur back in the lineup, the New Jersey Devils will now have to deal with another injury to another star player.
It’s the biggest game of the Florida Panthers’ season. Again.
Martin Brodeur bounced back from his shortest postseason performance with a record-setting 24th Stanley Cup playoff shutout, leading the New Jersey Devils to a 4-0 victory over the Florida Panthers Thursday night, tying their first-round series at 2-all.
Ilya Kovalchuk and Patrik Elias scored in the shootout and goalie Martin Brodeur stopped both Florida Panthers attempts, lifting the New Jersey Devils to a 3-2 victory Tuesday night that made them 7-1 in shootouts.
