Panthers Vs. Devils, 2012 NHL Playoffs Game 7: New Jersey Leads 1-0 After 1st Period

The New Jersey Devils are up 1-0 after the first period in Game 7 of their Eastern Conference quarterfinal series against the Florida Panthers. Adam Henrique put the New Jersey on the board just 1:29 into the game on a tip-in assisted by Anton Volchenkov and David Clarkson.

Otherwise, both teams have been strong defensively. Martin Brodeur turned back all 12 shots faced on net. Jose Theodore, starting in place of Clemmensen, has turned back eight of nine Devils' chances.

The game has so far been called very tightly. The Devils had a 4-3 opportunity after the 7:16 mark for 46 seconds but couldn't capitalize. Bryce Salvador was called for interfering Sean Bergenheim late in the period but the Panthers, too, came up empty.
