Knotted at 1-1, Devils Head to Tampa

Colin White and the Devils look to regain a series edge in Monday's game three.

newjerseydevils.com – As a nor'easter dumps inches of rain on the metropolitan area, the Devils travel to the Sunshine State.

Their Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series is even at 1-1 following a 3-2 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday night. Now the series moves to the St. Pete Times Forum for a 7:00 p.m. start on Monday night (FSN NY2, WABC 770 AM).

Despite some missed opportunities with the man advantage in game two, the story for the Devils thus far has been their power play effectiveness. New Jersey finished 2-for-5 in the second game of the series, and as of Saturday night, led the league in power play percentage this postseason, connecting at a 50% clip (4-for-8).

Zach Parise, Jamie Langenbrunner, Brian Rafalski and Patrik Elias have all scored power play goals in the series, and Langenbrunner and Rafalski each have a pair of power play assists.

Langenbrunner assisted on Zach Parise's first-period power play goal, then potted one of his own in the second period. Of Langenbrunner's four points in the series, three have come with the man advantage.

But after outshooting the Lighting 18-5 in the second period, the Devils had only one goal to show for roughly 13 minutes of sustained pressure. Head coach Lou Lamoriello said after the game that he would like to see his team make the most of those chances going forward in the series.

"When we have opportunities to score, you have to score," Lamoriello said. "Rebounds, we have to jump on a little quicker. We had plenty of opportunities.  They took advantage of the opportunities we gave them and we didn’t."

New Jersey split two games in Tampa Bay this season, most recently losing a 3-1 decision on March 22. However, the Devils shutout the Lightning, 2-0, in their first Florida meeting of the season on Jan. 26, as Martin Brodeur turned away all 28 Tampa Bay shots.

The Devils return to the Continental Airlines Arena to play game five of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinal on Friday, April 20 at 7:00 p.m. (FSN NY, 92.3 Free FM).
