Brodeur Stops 35 To Lead Devils Over Blue Jackets
Martin Brodeur stopped 35 shots and made two more saves in the shootout to lead the New Jersey Devils to a 2-1 victory over Columbus on Wednesday night, snapping the Blue Jackets’ first winning streak of the season.
Ilya Kovalchuk and Zach Parise scored in the shootout for the Devils and Brodeur made those shots stand up by making a glove save on Rick Nash and a body save on Mark Letestu to ice the win.
Dainius Zubrus, who was honored before the game for becoming the 267th player to appear in 1,000 NHL games, tallied for New Jersey in the second period.
Tough-guy Jared Boll had tied the game in the third period for Columbus with his first of the season.
