Rangers Vs. Devils, NHL Playoffs 2012 Game 1: Still Scoreless After 2 Periods

The New York Rangers and the New Jersey Devils are still tied up, 0-0, after two periods of Game 1 of the 2012 Eastern Conference Finals at Madison Square Garden on Monday night. The Rangers hold a slim 18-17 advantage in shots for the game, but the Devils were the aggressor throughout much of the period earning higher quality opportunities.

Henrik Lundqvist at one point had to turn back three straight Zach Parise shots while the Rangers were on a powerplay. Lundqvist has been the difference so far in a game that New Jersey should arguably be leading. Veteran Martin Brodeur has been solid in net as well, albeit while facing less pressure.

The Rangers will need to shift momentum if they hope to take a game lead in their quest for the Stanley Cup.
