Game 35: Devils Fall 2-4 to Hurricanes

    The New Jersey Devils were defeated 4-2 by the Hurricanes in Carolina on Monday, December 26, 2011.

    Brandon Sutter scored a short-handed goal on Johan Hedberg at 11:13 of the first period to give Carolina a 1-0 lead.   Tuomo Ruutu and Anthony Steward scored second period goals (7:01 and 17:13) to make it a 3 goal Hurricanes lead.

    David Clarkson got the Devils on the board with a great assist from Anton Volchenkov, beating Cam Ward at 12:38 of the third period.   Kurtis Foster was also credited with an assist on Clarkson's 12th goal of the season.

    Adam Herique made it a game with a goal at 17:40 of the third period.   David Clarkson and Aton Volchenkov assisted on Henrique's 10th goal of the season.

    An errant pass from Ilya Kovalchuk was tipped by Brandon Sutter at the 19:30 mark - the puck went the length of the ice into the Devils net to make it a 4-2 Hurricanes victory.

    EDIT: After the game, it was shown that Sutter did not touch the puck.   Since Cam Ward was the last Hurricane to touch the puck before Kovalchuk shot it into the Devils net, the Carolina netminder was credited with the goal.
