    Jamie Langenbrunner was shaken up by a hit in the first period.   He returned in the second period and skated several shifts, but did not feel 100%, and returned to the locker room.

    Erik Cole beat Brodeur at 11:26 of the second period, to give the Hurricanes a 2-1 lead.

    Mike Rupp tied the game on a 5 on 3 power-play with just 13 seconds remaining in the second period.   The puck trickled past Weekes after deflecting off off Rupp's skate from a Turner Stevenson blast.   Scott Gomez also assisted on Rupp's 3rd goal of the season.

    The second period ended with the game tied, 2-2.   The Devils outshot the Hurricanes, 15-6 in the period.

    Patrik Elias returned to the lineup after sitting out Friday night, with back spasms.

    The game was the second half of a back-to-back home-and-home series, with the first half a Devils 2-1 win in Raleigh on Friday.

    After losing the first two games of the season series, the Devils came back close out the series, 2-2-0-0.   The Devils now lead the lifetime series, 36-29-9-0.

    The game was Pat Burns' 900th as an NHL coach.

    It was "hat night" at Continental Airlines Arena - all fans in attendance received a New Jersey Devils baseball cap.
