Goaltender duel ends in second loss for Devils

Final score: Vancouver 1, New Jersey 0 (OT)

Despite the heroics of Marty Brodeur, the Devils lost the second game in a back-to-back series to the Vancouver Canucks. The Devils were shut out, even as Brodeur made 29 saves in the effort. Unfortunately, the offense never materialized.

The Devils, despite being heavily outshot, managed to remain competitive, keeping the score at 0-0 for all 3 periods, and most of the overtime contest. However, the Canucks capitalized on a defensive error on the part of the Devils, with Christian Erhoff scoring with less than 20 seconds remaining before the game would have gone to a shootout.

The loss marks the second in a row for the Devils, who are only two games into their season.

*Note: No pictures again, I'll remember for the next game!
