R1 G2: Devils Fall to Rangers (& Officials) 1-2, Now 0-2 Series Deficit

    The New Jersey Devils now find themselves in a 0-2 series hole after a 1-2 loss to the New York Rangers at the Prudential Center on Friday, April 11, 2008.

    The shots were even, 9-9 in the first period, which ended with the game still scoreless.

    Christian Backman cross-checked Zach Parise in the mouth at 6:53 of the second period, knocking out two of his front top teeth.

    Neither team scored in the second period, though the Devils outshot the Rangers 9-4 in the period.

    Colin White accidentally nudged Martin Brodeur off the post he was protecting and Jaromir Jagr took advantage, sneaking the puck into the back of the net at 4:26 of the third period.   Sean Avery scored just 23 seconds later to give the Rangers a 2-0 lead.

    John Madden gave the Devils hope with a goal that beat Henrik Lunqvist at 18:37.   Madden's first goal of the playoffs was assisted by Patrik Elias and Paul Martin.

    Several bad officiating calls in the last 90 seconds of the game prevented the Devils from having the chance to tie the game.   A weak penalty called on Jamie Langenbrunner at 19:05, was followed by an icing call on the Devils that should never have happened (since they were short-handed).   To top off the excellent officiating, there were several non-calls against the Rangers that were more clearly more egregious than the call on Langenbrunner.
