Panthers vs. Devils Game 6 Update: Devils and Panthers Tied, 2-2, After Regulation

The Florida Panthers and New Jersey Devils are tied, 2-2, after regulation in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals at the Prudential Center.

New Jersey finished regulation leading in shots, 36-13. Panthers goalie Scott Clemmensen has been stellar, turning aside 34 shots. Martin Brodeur has stopped 11.

This is the first time the two teams will head to overtime in the series. The Florida Panthers went into 25 overtime games during the regular season, and New Jersey played in 22 contests that went to overtime.

Steve Bernier and Ilya Kovalchuk scored goals for New Jersey, who held a 2-0 lead early in the second period. Kris Versteeg and Sean Bergenheim tied the game in the second period.

Alexei Ponikarovsky almost scored the game-winning goal at the 8:58 of the final period. Ponikarovsky found a pass in front, and had the entire right side of the net open. But he tipped the pass toward the middle of the net, and Clemmensen was able to get a pad on it to make the save.
