Game 40: Devils Honor Daneyko, Then Embarrass Selves

    The New Jersey Devils were embarrassed by the Tampa Bay Lightning, Losing 4-1 at home on Friday, January 9, 2004.

    Here are a few of my pictures from the game.

    Scott Gomez beat Lightning netminder John Grahame just 1:28 into the first period to give the Devils an early 1-0 lead.   Gomez's fifth goal of the season was assisted by Patrik Elias and Brian Rafalski.

    Just as Bob Arsena was announcing 1:00 remaining in the first period, Martin St. Louis put the puck past Martin Brodeur with a short-handed goal to tie the game.

    The first period ended with the teams tied, 1-1.   Tampa Bay outshot the Devils 15-10 in the period.

    There was no scoring in the second period which was delayed for quite some time due to a power outage.   The Lightning again outshot the Devils, in the second period by a margin of 9-5.

    Cory Stillman made it a 2-1 Lightning lead with a goal just 1:22 into the third period.   Dave Andreychuk beat Brodeur at 6:38 and Fredrik Modin scored off the following faceoff, just 9 seconds later to make it a 4-1 Tampa lead.

    There was no more scoring in the third period, the game ended with the Lightning defeating the Devils, 4-1.   Tampa Bay outshot New Jersey 13-4 in the third period and 37-19 in the game.

    The Devils were 0-4 on the power-play.   Tampa was 0-2 with the man advantage - though they did score a shorthanded goal.

    The Devils now trail the Lightning 0-2 in the season series.   The teams will meet two more times before the end of the season.

    The Devils honored long-time Devils' defenseman Ken Daneyko prior to the game.   All fans in attendance received a Ken Daneyko bobble head doll.

    Scott Stevens and Mike Rupp were not in the lineup - Paul Martin and Rob Skrlac took their place.   Scott Niedermayer wore the 'C' and John Madden wore an 'A'.
