Last night the New Jersey Devils went into Florida to take on the Panthers and won Game One 3-2. Though the Devils didn't play great, besides the first period, a win is a win come playoff time. Here are some notes on the game.
- I'm not sure if Anton Volchenkov was banged up or if Pete DeBoer didn't like the way he was playing, but he certainly didn't play very...
SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) -- Going down 3-0 in a playoff game against Martin Brodeur is not a great idea.
Going down 2-0 in a playoff series against Brodeur is even worse.
Over Brodeur's storied time in the New Jersey nets, the Devils are a perfect 10-for-10 when winning the first two games of a postseason series. New Jersey could get there again Sunday night, when the Devils visit...
As the dust settled from a game that saw the Devils fire an astounding 26 shots at Jose Theodore in the first period in Game 1 Friday night, the Panthers should be much more prepared for what is to come tonight.
Jose Theodore was outstanding in the losing effort, and with a better defensive effort in front of him he should have a good chance at evening the series at one game a...
Florida Panthers right winger Scottie Upshall missed on a check attempt and went head over heels into the Panthers bench during Friday night's NHL playoff game against the New Jersey Devils.
It happened in the third period when Upshall made a leaping attempt to check Devils right winger Stephen Gionta in front of the Panthers bench. Gionta was able to dodge out of the...
Stephen Weiss scored the first two playoff goals of his 10-year NHL career, Jose Theodore stopped 23 shots and the Florida Panthers got their first playoff victory in nearly 15 years, beating the New Jersey Devils 4-2 on Sunday night to even the first-round series at a game apiece.
Marcel Goc had a goal and an assist for the Panthers, who survived a frantic Devils rally in the third...

SUNRISE, Fla.-- With fans waving red towels and Dan Marino dropping the ceremonial first puck, it had all the makings of a banner return to the playoffs for the Florida Panthers.
Just one problem. Friday's game began at 7 p.m., and the Panthers didn't show up until their usual starting time of 7:30 p.m at BankAtlantic Center.
The New Jersey Devils stunned the Panthers with...
Game 2 of the Playoffs between the New Jersey Devils and Florida Panthers took place today (April 15th), and the Devils looked to add on their series lead. In game 1, New Jersey held on to win and they looked to carry out the momentum tonight. 2/3 of Game 2 was (depending on respective opinion) either boring or disappointing. For me it was like watching a chess match and crying at...
From the start the Florida Panthers looked like they wanted to dictate play, and physical play at that. The intensity was up and the crowd was rocking...until the Devils skill kicked in. It didn't take long.
At 6:31 of the first, Patrick Elias outwaited a sprawling Theodore to make it 1-0, and the onslaught continued totaling 26 shots to the Panthers 9 at the end of the...
Martin Brodeur stopped 24 shots for his 100th postseason win,
and a three-goal first period was enough to help the New Jersey
Devils spoil the Florida Panthers' long-awaited return to the
Stanley Cup playoffs in a 3-2 victory Friday night.
Last night the New Jersey Devils fell to the Florida Panthers 3-2 in Florida and will now head back to New Jersey for two games with the series tied at one. Stephen Weiss led the way for the Panthers scoring the first two playoff goals of his career. Here are some notes on last night's game, and a couple of other things.
- First off, the Devils did not play a very complete...
A lot of talk around the Panthers this last week is if there is a goalie controversy. Jose Theodore, who was stellar for most of the season, looked mediocre for multiple starts down the stretch, making the clinching of a division title all that more excruciating.
Scott Clemmensen outplayed him by far, but only has one playoff start in his career. Coach Kevin Dineen had the familiar...
