Game 29: Devils Fall 5-4 to Islanders

    The New Jersey Devils were defeated 5-4 by the Islanders in New York, on Tuesday, December 16, 2003.

    Mike Rupp beat Garth Snow just 5:52 into the first period to give the Devils an early 1-0 lead.   Rupp's fourth goal of the season was assisted by Patrik Elias and Scott Gomez.

    Rupp scored again just 2:49 later to increase the Devils lead to 2 goals.   Rupp's second goal of the game was assisted by Brian Rafalski and Grant Marshall.

    Michael Peca deflected the puck past Martin Brodeur at 12:46 to end Brodeur's 200+ minute shutout streak over the Islanders.

    The first period ended with the Devils leading the Islanders, 2-1.   New York outshot New Jersey 7-5 in the period.

    Kenny Jonsson beat Brodeur just 23 seconds into the second period, 6 seconds after a Devils penalty expired to tie the game, 2-2.

    John Madden got away on a breakaway and beat Snow unassisted at 4:43 of the second period.   Madden's fifth goal of the season regained the lead for the Devils.

    Trent Hunter got the puck past Brodeur at 9:37 of the second, on the power-play even the score again.

    The second period ended with the game tied, 3-3.   The Islanders outshot the Devils 14-13 in the period.

    Jason Blake beat Martin Brodeur short-handed at 13:55 of the third period to give the Islanders a 4-3 lead.   Video replay clearly showed that the play was off-side and the goal should not have counted.
