Canucks 3, Devils 0: New Jersey Falls Again

Vancouver, BC (Sports Network) - Henrik Sedin scored his first goal of the season on a penalty shot and Roberto Luongo turned away 30 shots in Vancouver's 3-0 win over New Jersey at Rogers Arena.

Luongo posted the 52nd shutout of his career to move ahead of Dave Kerr, Curtis Joseph and Rogie Vachon into 20th place on the all-time NHL list.

Raffi Torres and Ryan Kesler scored the other goals for the Canucks, who have won three in a row and four out of their last six.

Martin Brodeur stopped 20 shots in defeat for the Devils, who lost for a fifth time in their last six games during which they have totaled seven goals and no more than two in any of those contests.

New Jersey also received some bad news on Monday when it was announced that forward Zach Parise will undergo exploratory arthroscopic surgery on his knee and will be out for an undetermined period of time. Parise reaggravated an injury Saturday night in Los Angeles that hampered him during the summer.

Brodeur came out of his net on a clearing attempt to play the puck and left it for defenseman Matt Taormina, who circled back behind the right side of the net but lost his edge. Manny Malhotra swooped in from behind, took the puck away and found Torres in the slot from where he wristed the disc past Brodeur to the blocker side with 6:41 to go in the opening period.

Vancouver added to it's lead just 69 seconds into the middle stanza. Mason Raymond emerged from the right corner and threw the puck toward the net. It caromed off Kesler to Brodeur, who sticked it right back to Kesler, who then shrugged off Taormina and backhanded the loose puck home for his fourth goal of the year.

Taormina almost made up for his mistake as he rang a shot off the short side post from the left faceoff dot with two minutes left in the period.

Sedin was pulled down on a breakaway attempt leading to the one-on-one with Brodeur with 6:17 to play in the game.

He moved to the left circle, faked a shot and zipped to his right and tucked a backhander past a sprawling netminder from outside the right crease to finish the scoring in the only meeting of the season between the two teams.

Devils' Zach Parise To Have Knee Surgery

The injury bug continued to riddle the New Jersey Devils Monday as the team announced that Zach Parise will undergo knee surgery.

Parise, 26, has never appeared in fewer than 81 games in a season since he joined the Devils in the fall of 2005. He has 341 points (163 goals, 178 assists) in 419 NHL games. No timetable has been set for Parise’s return.

The Devils also learned Monday that center Jacob Josefson will miss 6-8 weeks after undergoing surgery to repair a detached ligament in his hand. Josefson, a 19-year-old rookie, was held without a point in his first six NHL games. He was New Jersey’s first-round pick (No. 20) at the 2009 Entry Draft.

Besides Parise and Josefson, the Devils are also without defensemen Anssi Salmela (torn ACL), Bryce Salvador (concussion) and Matthew Corrente, who broke his hand during a fight in San Jose last Wednesday.
