Devils Vs. Rangers, NHL Playoffs 2012 Game 6: New Jersey Leads New York 2-0 After First Period

The New Jersey Devils lead the New York Rangers by a score of 2-0 after the first period of game six of their series. The first goal came on a textbook rebound shot, as Ryan Carter beat defenseman Marc Staal to the puck and was able to score. The second came on a power play after Ruslan Fedotanko got called for tripping at 12:31. The Devils put together a strong power play, with Ilya Kovalchuk knocking one past Henrik Lundqvist after passing it between each man on the ice:

The Rangers have managed to generate some offensive pressure, taking 14 shots on goal, but they have been unable to find net. They did manage to kill New Jersey's second power play, picked up when Carl Haglin was called for goalie interference with 2:30 left in the period. The Devils had one penalty in the first period, a high sticking call on Bryce Salvador just three minutes into the game.
