Devils Shut Out Panthers, 4-0, Brodeur Makes History
(NEWARK, N.J.) -- Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur set a record on Thursday night with his 24th playoff shutout in New Jersey's 4-0 win over the Florida Panthers.
The 39-year-old finished with 26 saves and took over sole possession of the postseason shutout mark by hall of famer Patrick Roy. The win also evened up the series at two games apiece.
"I've played a lot of games," said Brodeur who also got his 101st postseason win. "In the playoffs, there are a lot of tight games. Sometimes you need shutouts to win some of them. I have been fortunate to play on great teams that sacrificed themselves in order to get shutouts. I am a product of that."
Zach Parise started the scoring for the Devils in the second period on the power play to give them a 1-0 lead. Then in the third, New Jersey blitzed Florida with three goals of their own, following a game three when the Devils let a 3-0 lead slip away.
Game 5 will be tomorrow in Florida.
