Game 75: Canadiens Beat Devils: 3-2 - Late Rally Foiled

    The New Jersey Devils lost 3-2 to the Canadiens in Montreal on Saturday, March 20, 2004.   The Devils rallied late, and scored what would have been the tying goal, had they not given up an empty net goal 25 seconds earlier.

    Both netmiders were able to keep their opposition from scoring in the first period.   The Devils outshot the Canadiens 12-8 in the period.

    Michael Ryder beat Martin Brodeur 7:34 into the second period to give the Canadiens a 1-0 lead.

    Ryder's goal was the only one of the period.   The shots were even, 8-8 in the period.

    Jim Dowd beat Brodeur in close to give the Habs a 2-0 lead, 2:52 into the third period.

    John Madden blasted the puck through Jose Theodore, shorthanded at 6:30 of the third period to get the Devils back into the game.   Madden's 12th goal of the season was unassisted.

    Alexei Kovalev knocked in an empty net goal with 1:01 remaining.   The Devils would go on to score a power-play goal (Sergei Brylin - 13th of the year from Patrik Elias and Raymond Giroux) 25 seconds later - but were unable to get another one past Theodore in the final 36 seconds of regulation time.

    The game ended with the Devils falling to the Canadiens, 3-2.   The Devils outshot the Habs, 16-7 in the third period, and 36-25 in the game.

    Brian Gionta returned to the Devils lineup after missing several games with a facial injury.   Igor Larionov (healthy), Jan Hrdina (healthy), Jiri Bicek (healthy), David Hale (healthy), Brian Rafalski (leg), and Scott Stevens (concussion) were the Devils scratches.

    With their win, the Canadiens win the season series, 2-1-1.
