Devils Vs. Panthers, 2012 NHL Playoffs Game 3: New Jersey Gives Up Lead, Down 4-3 Going After 2nd Period

The New Jersey Devils have now given up four straight goals after taking a 3-0 lead early in the first period during Game 3 of their opening 2012 NHL Playoff series against the Florida Panthers on Tuesday night. Martin Brodeur was pulled just over two minutes into the second period, after giving up his third goal of the night on long dump-off shot by Mike Weaver through the five-hole.

Johan Hedberg took over between the pipes and gave up a powerplay goal to Brian Campbell just four minutes later. He was strong the rest of the way against a Panthers squad that appears to be much more-so the aggressor. The Devils did appear to score a goal late in the period but Steve Bernier was called for a very iffy goalie interference and the goal was waved off.
