Marty is a Wall - Devils Beat Maple Leafs, 3-1
    The New Jersey Devils defeated the Maple Leafs in Toronto, 3-1 on Saturday, March 30, 2002.   This win along with the Islanders 4-2 loss to the Capitals tonight gets the Devils back into a tie with the Islanders for 6th place in the Eastern Conference.   The two teams will meet for their next game on Monday.
    Ex-Devil Alexander Mogilny had two breakaway opportunities early in the first period, but Brodeur stopped him each time.
    Mats Sundin beat Martin Brodeur at 18:20 of the first period to give the Leafs a 1-0 lead.   John Madden was stripped of the puck behind Brodeur and Sundin was able to lift the puck over Brodeur.
    The first period ended with the Leafs leading the Devils, 1-0.   The Maple Leafs outshot the Devils 13-10 in the period.
    Patrik Elias tied the game just 46 seconds into the second period by beating Tom Barasso with a nice shot.   Elias's 27th goal of the season was assisted by Scott Gomez and Bobby Holik.
    Bobby Holik gave the Devils their first lead of the game at 17:15 by blasting the puck past Barasso.   Holik's 24th goal of the season was assisted by Scott Gomez and Sergei Brylin.
    There was a bit of a scrum with a few seconds to go in the period.   Tie Domi engaged Jay Pandolfo and each were assesed a 5 minute major penalty for fighting.   Even though it was clearly a mismatch and Domi dropped his gloves well before Pandolfo did, Domi did not receive and instigator penalty. Pandolfo had only 10 penalty minutes (5 minors) this season prior to this game.
    The second period ended with the Devils leading the Leafs, 2-1.   The Devils outshot the Maple Leafs, 15-12 in the period.
    Tom Barasso did not return to the ice, nor to the bench when the third period began.   Corey Schwab replaced him in net for the Maple Leafs.
    Scott Gomez gave the Devils a 3-1 lead at 6:18 of the third period, on the power-play.   Gomez's 10th goal of the season was assisted by Scott Stevens and Scott Niedermayer.
    The game ended with the Devils winning the game, 3-1.   The Leafs outshot the Devils 8-6 in the period and 33-31 in the game.
    Martin Brodeur was selected as the first star of the game and was cheered by the Toronto crowd.   This was the first game for the Devils in Canada since the Olympics.
    Mike Commodore, Ken Daneyko, Valeri Kamensky, and Brian Gionta were the scratches for the Devils.
    The win over the Leafs also prevented them from clinching a playoff spot.
