Link, as always, goes to the NHL.com recap. And this was definitely the night of sore legs, sore feet, and beaten sticks. The Devils blocked 18 shots, the Leafs blocked 21, and neither team got too many clean chances on net. Mike Rupp opened up the game with a slick shot on net from a Jeff Finger giveaway; and Justin Williams shot a fantastic shot to take a lead. But a floater off of Zach Parise's visor tied it up; and the game remained equalized in the battle of thwarted offense.
While things opened up in overtime, it wasn't enough and it went to a shootout. Jason Blake scored a highlight of the month reel goal on a spin-o-rama that beat Clemmensen clean. Brian Rolston responded with a slapshot and so the Devils got 1 instead of 2. Can't dwell on it now, they got to go to Buffalo tomorrow.
