Panthers Vs. Devils, 2012 NHL Playoffs Game 5: Devils, Panthers Tied At Zero After One Period

The New Jersey Devils and Florida Panthers are tied at zero after one period of play, as neither team scored a goal in the first period of game five.

Both teams took 11 shots a piece with Devils' right wing, David Clark, leading the way with three attempts. It was a fairly quiet first period, with the two teams combining for only two penalty minutes – a slashing penalty on Florida's Ed Jovanovski. New Jersey finished without a giveaway in the first and took the puck away from the Panthers four times.

Martin Broduer continues his hot goaltending, as he has now saved 37 consecutive shots, going back to game four.

The winner of Saturday's game will take a 3-2 series lead. Game six will be back in New Jersey, scheduled for Tuesday, April 24.
