Devils Lose 3-1
    The New Jersey Devils lost to the Colorado Avalanche on Thursday, May 31, 2001 - Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals.   This loss means the Avalanche now lead the series 2 games to 1.   New Jersey has been outscored 9-3 through three Finals games.
    Jason Arnott scored a 3:16 with a slap shot on the power-play to give the Devils an early 1-0 lead.   Bobby Holik and Patrik Elias got assists on the goal.
    Martin Skoula beat Martin Brodeur with a wrist shot at 10:38 to tie the game, 1-1.
    After one period, the game was tied, 1-1.   The Devils outshot the Avalanche 8-5 in the period.
    The Avalanche tightened up defensively in the second period, clogging up the neutral zone.   The Devils fell victim to the same trap they are always accused of playing.   Three shots is all they were able to get on goal.   Colorado however, was able to put 11 shots on Brodeur.   None of the fourteen combined shots beat the goaltenders.
    Roy in an attempt to play the puck, was way out of goal late in the second period.   Patrik Elias beat him to the puck and nearly made him pay.   Unfortunately his bad angle shot clanged off the post, 17 seconds before the period ended.
    As the period ended, Roy - who was apparently upset with himself after misplaying the puck, threw the net off it's pegs and sent his water bottle flying.   No penalty was called on the incident.
    The score remained 1-1 after two periods of play.
    31 seconds into the third period, Ray Bourque beat Martin Brodeur with a slap shot.   The goal was scored on a carry-over boarding penalty on Jason Arnott.
    Dan Hinote capped the scoring at 6:28 beating Brodeur with a wrist shot.   The play was well offsides, but the linesman failed to make the call.   The goal counted.
    The Devils did manage to get eleven shots on goal in the third period, but none beat Roy.
    The final score of the game, Avalanche 3, Devils 1.
    This was the first ever win for the Avalanche (since moving from Quebec) in our arena.
