Brodeur Stops Pens Offense Again

- Five games. One result. Five wins by the New Jersey Devils. The Devils defeated the Penguins for the fifth time this season. Martin Brodeur continued his dominance against Pittsburgh in the 3-1 victory. He stopped 34 of 35 shots while Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 29 of 32 shots. Fleury played well in my opinion, but Brodeur just played like he always does against Pittsburgh. Sidney Crosby scored the only goal for Pittsburgh. New Jersey has outscored the Penguins 16-3 in five games. That is ridiculous. The officiating was not good at all in this game. Craig Adams was handed a game misconduct after a five minute charging penalty on a hit on former Penguin Martin Skoula. On Ilya Kovalchuk's goal, Travis Zajac interfered with Marc-Andre Fleury by hitting Fleury's glove away as he was trying to catch the puck. Nothing was called and the goal stood. This was a very frustrating loss, but hopefully the Penguins can rebound. I have never seen Dan Bylsma so fired up. He looked infuriated after Kovalchuk's goal.

Next Game: Sunday at Tampa Bay Lightning at 5:00.
Note: I will be attending the game in Tampa as a part of a small vacation. I will try to post some pictures if I can.
