Brodeur shines, but Devils fall short to the revamped Canucks

Final score: Vancouver 2, New Jersey 1

Ilya Kovalchuck didn't take too long to adjust to his new team. With a goal and an assist, the former Thrasher was instrumental in sinking the Devils in their first game of the season.

The Devils got on the scoreboard first, with Rob Niedermayer potting his first of the season, banking a one-timer off of Luongo into the net. The Canucks responded quickly, scoring on the very next shot past a desperate Brodeur.

The 1-1 tie persisted through the third period, leading to the possibility of an overtime. Unfortunately, the Devils couldn't pull through for their beleaguered netminder, and the Canucks scored again for a final time, and took the game 2-1 in regulation.
