Devils Win 3-2!
    The New Jersey Devils won game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals at home Saturday night, June 2, 2001.   The Devils 3-2 win over the Colorado Avalanche ties the series at 2 games each.
    Devils fans were quieted early in the game when Jason Arnott was hurt by a clearing attempt.   The puck hit him near the left temple just 15 seconds into the game.   He would not return after the first period.   Sergei Nemchinov eventually centered the "A" line, after a bit of shuffling.
    Rob Blake quieted the fans again, just 3:58 into the first period by beating Martin Brodeur with a wrist shot.
    The Avalanche led 1-0 after one period.   The Devils outshot Colorado 8-4 in the period.
    The Devils seemed like they were playing with heart again, when the second period began.   The intensity level was increased, they were moving much faster, and were taking shots.   3:42 into the second period, Patrik Elias beat Roy with a wrist shot - Short-Handed!   Petr Sykora got an assist on the goal.
    Unfortunately Colorado responded, at 13:54 Chris Drury scored to give the Avalanche the lead again.
    After two periods, the Devils were outshooting the Avalanche 19-8, but were trailing on the scoreboard 1-2.
    Scott Gomez broke out of his scoring slump by putting a backhand shot past Roy at 8:09 into the third period.   Jay Pandolfo and Bob Corkum got assists on the goal.   The crowd went wild after the goal.   It was as if the team had won the game, but it was only tied, now 2-2.
    I don't care what people say about Devils fans - the arena was ROCKING after the Gomez goal.   The crowd kept the arena noisy for the remainder of the game!
    With just 4:06 remaining in the third period, Bobby Holik crushed Milan Hejduk with a heavy shoulder check.   He was dazed and bleeding, and had to be helped from the ice.   Hejduk did not return to the game, and his status is unknown for game 5.
    Petr Sykora got the game-winning goal at 17:23 with a wrist shot.   Patrik Elias and Bobby Holik got assists on the goal.
    The Devils won the game by a score of 3-2.   The Devils held the Avalanche to only 4 shots per period, outshooting them in the game 35-12.   The Avalanche were also outhit by the Devils, 38-19.
    At one point in the game, the Avalanche only had two shots on goal over a 26 minute period of time.
    The twelve shots Colorado had in the game set a new team playoff low.
    Gomez appeared to be quite fired up in this game, breaking out of his scoring slump by scoring a goal, and leading the team in shots, with six.
    Alexander Mogilny has not scored in his last 14 game (the worst scoring slump of his career).   He fired a rocket of a shot in the second period which hit both the crossbar and a post - but would not go in.   Keep firing those shots Alex.
