Brodeur Helps Keep Devils Tied With Red Wings, 1-1, After Two Periods

If anyone doubted the recent resurgence of Martin Brodeur, they need only to watch the second period of tonight's New Jersey Devils and Detroit Red Wings game.

With the teams tied, 1-1, after one period, it took a vintage Brodeur effort to keep his Devils tied.

The Red Wings outshot the Devils, 11-7, with several good scoring chances throughout the period. Brodeur rose to the occasion on each attempt.

Niklas Kronwall recorded the first good scoring chance, redirecting a shot toward Brodeur at 8:23 of the period. The Devils' goalie closed the pads to make the save.

With time running out, Johan Franzen fired a backhand from the right circle. Brodeur, playing without a stick, shouldered away the puck as the horn sounded to end the period.

Helm missed a great opportunity to put Detroit ahead with 7:10 left in the second period. Helm and Kris Draper broke in to the Devils zone on a shorthanded 2-on-1 opportunity. The Red Wings' center, already with a goal tonight, had Brodeur beat to the stick side but fired his shot wide.

New Jersey's powerplay has been ineffective all game. Despite having three opportunities, they've recorded only two shots. It's a far cry from their two goal powerplay effort in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Florida Panthers.
