Moran beat Marty Brodeur with a slap shot from the blue
line at 3:35. The goal may have been slightly deflected by Colin
White, but from that distance, Brodeur should have been able to stop
the puck. The goal gave the Penguins an early 1-0 lead.
Alexie Kovalev got a power-play goal at 12:28 to give
the Penguins a 2-0 lead.

Just when the you think the game can't get much worse,
the second period begins.. The first 11 minutes or so of the
period, the Devils had numerous good scoring opportunities and seemed
to be outplaying the Penguins, but could not get a puck past Hedberg.
Then the Penguins have a two on one race to the puck skidding
down towards the Devils zone. Marty leaves the net to play the
puck - which he gets but it's stolen away, and Peterson put the puck
into the empty net at 11:56.
Lang would put a puck past Brodeur at 14:58 of the second
period to give the Penguins a 4-0 lead. The goal also led to
Brodeur being pulled from the net, and J.F. Damphousse put in.
The second period ended with the Penguins leading 4-0,
even though the Devils outshot them 13-6.
