R1 Game 3: Refs Help Devils Blow 3 Goal Lead, Lose 3-4

    The New Jersey Devils lost their game 3 Stanley Cup Playoffs Quarterfinals matchup against the Florida Panthers at the Prudential Center, 3-4 on Tuesday, April 17, 2012.   The Panthers now lead the best-of-seven series, 2-1.

    Zach Parise got the Devils on the board early - he beat Jose Theodore just 33 seconds into the first period to give New Jersey the 1-0 lead.   Travis Zajac and Ilya Kovalchuk assisted on Parise's first goal of the playoffs.

    Stephen Gionta scored his first career playoff goal to make it 2-0 at 3:27.   Marek Zidlicky and Steve Bernier assisted on the goal.

    A power-play goal from Patrik Elias at 6:16 of the first period gave the Devils a comanding lead.   Zach Parise and David Clarkson were credited with assists on Elias' second goal of the playoffs.

    The Panthers scored four unanswered goals, three of them on the power-play with the help of some terrible officiating.   Tim Peel also waived off (BOGUS call) the Devils game-tying fourth goal.
