This Date in Devils History: May 30

 

Martin Brodeur made 15 saves in Game 1 of the 2000 Stanley Cup Final against the Dallas Stars.

MAY 30, 2000:
"A" LINE POWERS DEVILS TO GAME 1 WIN

newjerseydevils.com – The “A” Line scored early and often, and by the time the buzzer sounded in East Rutherford, the Devils had moved a step closer to hockey’s ultimate prize.

 
Seven years ago today, Game 1 of the 2000 Stanley Cup Final went into the history books as a 7-3 victory for New Jersey, and the Devils took a 1-0 series lead over the Dallas Stars.

Jason Arnott beat Dallas goaltender Ed Belfour at 7:22 of the first period to give the Devils the first lead of the game, and the top line of Arnott, Petr Sykora and Patrik Elias would never look back. The trio finished the opening contest having accounted for four goals, including one on the power play, and seven assists.

Scott Stevens, Ken Daneyko and Sergei Brylin rounded out the other Devils’ scorers, and the seven-goal surge represented the Devils’ highest offensive output in the postseason since a 7-3 victory over the Rangers in Game 2 of the 1992 Patrick Division Semifinals.

Martin Brodeur stopped 15 of 18 Dallas shots for his fifth straight win in a Stanley Cup Final, as the Devils went on to top the Stars in six games for the franchise’s second Championship in six seasons.
