Game 6: Hurricanes Eliminate Devils, Gm 6 1-0 Shut out
    The Carolina Hurricanes eliminated the New Jersey Devils from the first round of the playoffs by defeating them at home on Saturday, April 27, 2002.   Kevin Weekes stole the series by being a wall in net - and recording a 1-0 shutout in game 6.
    There was no scoring in the first period and the Hurricanes outshot the Devils 7-4.   Carolina won 60% of the faceoffs in the period, but were outhit, 14-12.
    Ron Francis scored at 10:29 of the second period on the power-play to give the Hurricanes a 1-0 lead.   The Devils got caught in the offensive zone and the Hurricanes broke out with a two on one.   The pass got through the Devils defenseman and Francis had an empty net to shoot into.
    The second period ended with the Hurricanes leading the Devils, 1-0.   The Hurricanes outshot the Devils 11-9 and won an incredible 73% of the faceoffs in the period.   The Devils outhit the Hurricanes 10-3 in the period.
    There was no scoring in the third period, but the Devils had numerous good scoring chances.   Weekes was solid.   The Devils outshot the Hurricanes 16-7 in the third period.
    The Devils outshot the Hurricanes 32-22 in the game.   The Devils also outhit the Hurricanes 34-20, but only managed to win 41% of the faceoffs.
    This was the Hurricanes first ever best of seven playoff series win, and their only franchise playoff series win since 1986, when the team was the Hartford Whalers.
    The game was the 300th game for the Devils in three years, who made it to the Stanley Cup Finals in 2000 & 2001 (winning in 2000).   This was not the same Devils team from either 2000 or 2001 though.   They lacked the offense of Alexander Mogilny.   They were older and were plagued with injuries to key players.
    Brodeur was solid in net for the Devils, allowing just 9 goals in 6 games (1.50GAA).   The Devils suffered from a lack of offense - something they struggled with all season.
    Only 4 of the 11 goals the Devils scored this series came on even strength hockey.   7 came on the power-play.
    Turner Stevenson made his first appearance for the Devils since having knee surgery in January.   He skated hard, and had several big hits.
    Stephane Richer, Sergei Nemchinov, Valeri Kamensky, Christian Berglund, and Andrei Zyuzin were scratches for the Devils.
    The attendance for the game was 17,104 of a 19,040 capacity.
