Cats Fall 2-0 in New Jersey

Martin Brodeur tied Hall of Famer Jacques Plante for fourth place on the NHL shutout list with 82 and the New Jersey Devils snapped a three-game losing streak with a 2-0 win over the Florida Panthers on Thursday night.

Zach Parise and Patrik Elias scored power-play goals to support Brodeur's 29-save effort. The win came a day after the Devils held a team meeting after the defensive-minded club give up 15 goals in the three games.

Brodeur probably had to make about six good saves in posting his second shutout of the season. His best was a sprawling stop midway through the first period on a rebound attempt along the ice by Ville Peltonen. Brodeur also stopped Gary Roberts in close on two stuff attempts during the first of the Panthers' two power plays.

The Panthers' inability to stay out of the penalty box was the difference in the game. New Jersey had six power plays, including a 61-second, two-man advantage that Florida killed off.

Parise got the Devils on the board with Bryan Allen off for tripping late in the first period. New Jersey defenseman Brian Rafalski took a shot from the point that Florida defenseman Jay Bouwmeester knocked down. The puck seemed to go under goalie Alex Auld, but Parise poked it into the net for his fourth goal.

Elias got his second of the season with less than five minutes left in the second period. Jamie Langenbrunner missed a wide-open shot from between the circles. The puck bounced off the glass behind the net and came out to Elias, who slid it into the net.

Auld faced 23 shots.

Devils tough guy Cam Janssen bullied the Panthers all game. His first-period hit on Mike Van Ryn knocked the Florida defenseman out of the game with a shoulder injury.

Janssen instigated a little melee with a charging penalty against Gary Roberts in the second period and he pummeled Panthers defenseman Steve Montador in a third-period fight.

Notes: Devils C Scott Gomez left the game late in the second period with a groin injury. ... Florida dressed seven defensemen and Joel Kwiatkowski moved from a wing back to defense on Van Ryn was hurt. ... Florida C Joe Nieuwendyk, who hurt his back in a win over the Rangers on Wednesday, did not dress. ... New Jersey recalled defenseman Alex Brooks from Lowell on Thursday. He was paired with Jim Fahey.
