The New Jersey Devils broke through the seal on the scoreboard in the second period of Game 4 against the Florida Panthers. After 40 minutes, they are up 1-0 and on their way to a tying win in their opening series of the 2012 NHL Playoffs.
Zach Parise put the Devils up 6:08 into the second period. New Jersey earned a powerplay on a high-sticking call against Keaton Ellerby. Marek Zidlicky set up the goal with a wicked head-on slapshot just in front of the blue line, creating the rebound off of Scott Clemmensen's pads for Parise to capitalize on.
Martin Brodeur has been solid in net coming off his shaky Game 3. So far, he has faced 17 shots against and turned back all of them. The Devils have also peppered Clemmensen with 17 shots, in what has so far been a very evenly played game.
