NEW JERSEY 2, ISLANDERS 0
Brodeur stops 25 to shut out Islanders

Official Scoresheet | Official Super Stats


Martin Brodeur shut the door on the Islanders for the second time this season, turning aside all 25 shots for his league-leading tenth shutout of the season. Jamie Langenbrunner and Jay Pandolfo scored the only goals of the game to lead the New Jersey Devils past the Islanders 2-0, Thursday night at the Continental Airlines Arena.

Rick DiPietro played well stopping 35 of 37 shots in defeat.

"Ricky kept us in the game," said head coach Ted Nolan. "But you make one mistake against this team and it's hard to come back on them."

The first period saw the Islanders fend off the Devils after being out-shot 15-3. The Islanders successfully killed off four power plays, including 32 seconds of a 5-on-3 power play.

"We couldn't seem to generate a forecheck against New Jersey," said Mike Sillinger. "We couldn't get any rhythm and the second chances on Brodeur were hard to come by."

In the second period, Jason Blake rang one off the post and Sillinger had a couple of chances, but the Islanders could not get one past Martin Brodeur.

It was the Devils that scored the game's first goal with 9:18 left in the second period. After failing to convert a 2-on-1 break, Langenbrunner eventually jammed the puck over the line for his 19th goal of the season.

"I was already sliding across to the other side and could only get my pad on the puck," said Rick DiPietro. "I couldn't stretch over to get my glove on it."

Brodeur made his best save late in the third period when he snagged the puck with his trapper after Brendan Witt's shot from the point was deflected by a Devils stick.

The Islanders had another marvelous chance on the power play in the final five minutes, but Jason Blake's backhander from down low was stopped by Brodeur's shoulder.

The Devils extended their lead to 2-0 while shorthanded. Pandolfo tipped home John Madden's pass while on a 2-on-2 rush with 3:36 remaining in the third period.
