Game 82: Devils Give Islanders Playoff Spot, Lose 2-3 (Shootout)

    The New Jersey Devils lost 2-3 at home in a shootout against the New York Islanders on Sunday, April 8, 2007.   The Devils had a lackluster performance, but got on the board late and struck fear into the hearts of the Islanders and their fans when they tied the game with just .9 seconds remaining in regulation time.

    Scott Clemmensen made a rare start in net for the Devils and Brian Gionta returned to the lineup.   Defenseman Richard Matvichuk also made his first appearance on the ice this season.

    The Islanders needed both points to squeak their way into the playoffs - one point and they would have tied the Maple Leafs for the 8th seed, but Toronto had the tiebreaker.

    Richard Park beat Clemmensen at 11:53 of the first period to give the Islanders a 1-0 lead.

    The Devils only took 3 shots on Islander netminder Wade Dubielewicz in te first period (to the Islanders 9 shots).   The first period ended with New York leading 1-0.

    The shots were even, 9-9 in the second period, but neither team put the puck in the net.

    Richard Park scored his second goal of the game at 7:51 of the third period to give the Islanders a 2-0 lead.

    The Devils picked up their game and John Madden scored at 15:47 to cut the Islanders lead to one goal.   Jay Pandolfo and Sergei Brylin assisted on Madden's 11th goal of the season.

    With just 0.9 seconds remaining in regulation time, John Madden scored his second goal of the game to tie it, 2-2.   Jamie Langenbrunner and Patrik Elias assisted on the goal.

    Neither team scored in the five minute over time, sending the game to the shootout - where the Islanders scored twice and the Devils only once.
