Panthers Vs. Devils, 2012 NHL Playoffs Game 7: New Jersey And Florida Headed For Double Overtime

Both teams had their opportunities in a frenetic first overtime period, but neither the New Jersey Devils nor the Florida Panthers could light the lamp, sending Thursday night's Game 7 into double overtime. The next goal will be the last goal of the first round of the 2012 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs, with all other series having finished up.

The Panthers outshot the Devils 12 to nine in the period. Both teams played plenty of dump-and-chase down the ice, creating several crashing scoring opportunities. Both Martin Brodeur and Jose Theodore were spectacular in net, however. Brodeur made three consecutive saves in one key sequence early in the period.

The Devils earned a powerplay opportunity 3:21 into the period, but again couldn't capitalize. They are 0-for-3 with a man advantage this game. The goaltenders have faced a combined 80 shots on the night.
