March 19, 2004Game 74: Devils & Canadiens Tie It Up, 1-1.. 400 Must Wait
The New Jersey Devils skated at home to a 1-1 tie with the
Montreal Canadiens on Friday, March 19, 2004. Martin Brodeur will have
another shot at career win 400 in Montreal on Saturday.
Yanic Perreault beat Martin Brodeur 4:35 into the first period to
give Montreal a 1-0 lead.
Patrik Elias deflected a great shot from Raymond Giroux past
Montreal netminder Mathieu Garon at 11:37 - but the goal was reviewed and not
allowed. The officials claim the puck was deflected higher than the
crossbar, however, I have trouble believing that they had any camera angle that
would prove that.
The first period ended with only the one allowed goal scored.
The Canadiens outshot the Devils 15-8 in the period.
Jay Pandolfo made a great play to lift the puck over Garon at
1:19 of the second period to tie the game, 1-1. John Madden and Jamie
Langenbrunner assisted on Pandolfo's 13th goal of the season.
The second period ended with the game tied, 1-1. The
Devils outshot the Habs, 12-9 in the period.
The teams played a cautious third period, and neither managed to
score a goal. The Devils outshot the Habs 5-3 in the third period before
the game went to overtime.
There were more chances in the five minute overtime than the 20
minute third period - but both goaltenders were up to the task. The
game ended in a 1-1 tie. The Devils outshot Montreal 5-4 in the overtime
but were outshot 31-30 in the game.
The season series remains tied, now 1-1-1. The second-half
of the home-and-home series will be played in Montreal on Saturday.
