1st Devils Goal (Zajac), Even

  • New Jersey Contributions
    A. Greene – gets to a puck at the right point off of a wide shot and tries to play it deeper into the zone, but it’s deflected by Callahan into the air; then gloves the puck down to the right corner and plays it around the boards behind the net (cont.), one-times Cammalleri’s pass on net and Nabokov produces a rebound
    J. Jagr – gets to the puck in the left corner and moves it below the goal line for Cammalleri
    M. Cammalleri – carries the puck up the left side boards and passes the puck to Greene at the top of the zone
    T. Zajac – gets to the rebound in front of Nabokov, is stopped on his first shot attempt, and then puts the puck past Nabokov’s left pad
  • Tampa Bay Faults
    V. Hedman – collides with Zajac next to the net when Greene shoots the puck, then skates behind Nabokov as Zajac goes in front, leaving Zajac all alone with the puck in front

1st Lightning Goal (Killorn), Even

  • Tampa Bay Contributions
    A. Stralman – starts with the puck in his own zone and carries it up to the red line before passing it to the right for Johnson
    T. Johnson – redirects the puck into the Devils zone off of Salvador, gets the puck at Salvador’s feet after he fans on the puck twice, then skates to the inside of the right faceoff circle before passing the puck across the slot to Killorn
    A. Killorn – corrals the puck and then slides it under Schneider’s left pad as he’s trying to get across in position
  • New Jersey Faults
    B. Salvador – fans on the puck twice around his feet and then loses positioning as Johnson skates past him


2nd Devils Goal (Cammalleri), Powerplay

  • New Jersey Contributions
    E. Gelinas – starts with the puck in the defensive zone, skates it through the neutral zone, enters the middle of the Lightning zone, and passes it to Merrill at the left point (cont.), gets the puck from Elias and passes it down to Havlat at the right faceoff circle
    J. Merrill – carries the puck down the left side boards to the corner and then passes it back to Elias at the left point
    P. Elias – holds the puck and moves to the middle of the blue line, then passes to the right point as Gelinas skates back there (cont.), redirects Havlat’s pass in the slot on net and is stopped by Nabokov, then pokes the puck to the right to Cammalleri next to the crease
    M. Havlat – centers the puck to the slot for Elias
    M. Cammalleri – shoots the puck past Nabokov before he can dive over for a desperation save
  • Tampa Bay Faults
    S. Stamkos – in the penalty box for hooking
    T. Johnson – doesn’t slide down to Elias in the slot quickly enough to prevent his shot and then doesn’t have positioning on him to tie up his stick as he pokes the puck to Cammalleri
