Can The Lightning Score, Who Will Setup?
NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Dainius Zubrus scored two goals in the third period and Martin Brodeur made 33 saves, leading the New Jersey Devils past the Tampa Bay Lightning 3-0 on Saturday night.
Brodeur earned his third shutout of the season and 124th of his career.
Jaromir Jagr assisted on both goals to raise his assist total to 1,024.
Damien Brunner’s seventh goal had broken the scoreless tie in the second period.
Jagr skated behind the net and passed to Zubrus on doorstep of the crease for the goal at 6:44 of the period.
Then at 9:36, Jagr put a backhand shot on goal and Zubrus was there to knock in the rebound for his seventh goal and a 3-0 advantage.
Brodeur came up with two of his best saves in the third to thwart the Lightning.
First, he turned away a breakaway chance with a pad save on Nikita Kucherov’s shot. Then he smothered a point-blank shot by J.T. Brown.
