Scouting Report:

It's a best-of-three series between the Panthers and Devils, with the teams splitting both two-game homestands with one road win a piece. The Panthers are yet to name a starting goalie for Saturday, but
Jose Theodore was on the ice Friday, while Scott Clemmensen was not. Coach Kevin Dineen was not upset with Clemmensen, his goaltender in Thursday's 4-0 loss, saying that his play was not the reason
for the Panthers' loss. With the Devils' top line clicking all three players scored goals in Game 4 the Panthers could need their goaltender to do what the Theodore-Clemmensen tandem has not done
all series: steal a game.


Big Story:


Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur continues to defy the odds. The 39-year-old Brodeur, who was pulled 2:18 into the second period of a Game 3 loss on Tuesday, made 26 saves on Thursday to help lead the
Devils to a 4-0 victory and enable them to even the best-of-seven series heading back to Florida. The shutout was the 24th of Brodeur's illustrious playoff career, which established a new standard.
Brodeur and Patrick Roy had shared the mark with 23 playoff shutouts before Thursday's triumph. Zach Parise, Steve Bernier, Travis Zajac and Ilya Kovalchuk scored in the victory.


Team Scope:


Devils: Coach Pete DeBoer has to be ecstatic over the way his team responded in Game 4 after Tuesday's disastrous meltdown. The Devils received contributions from everyone, including specialty teams.
The club finished 2-for-4 on the power-play while denying the Panthers on six power-play opportunities. Florida entered the game 6-for-10 with the man advantage. "Special teams have been the
difference in most of the games in the series, so both coaches are spending a lot of time on those areas in film work and I knew our penalty-killing would bounce back and it did," DeBoer said.

Panthers: Florida has trailed 3-0 in three of the four games of the series. In Game 3, the Panthers rallied back and scored a 4-3 victory. In Game 4, they had no answer for Brodeur and the Devils.
On top of that, the team was limited to just five defensemen after Keaton Ellerby exited the contest with a lower-body injury midway through the second period. Jason Garrison was a
surprise late scratch for Florida. Scott Clemmensen, who was making his first career playoff start, allowed four goals on 27 shots. "We had lots of chances out there," coach Kevin Dineen said.
"In all honesty we weren't very accurate. I think we wanted to create off rebounds instead of trying to score off the shot. That's not a good recipe for us against a goalie like [Brodeur]."

Who's Hot:


Zajac had a goal and one assist in Game 4 and now has two goals and two assists in four playoff games for the Devils.

Injury Report:


For the Panthers, forwards Matt Bradley (concussion) and Jack Skille (shoulder) are out and defensemen Garrison and Ellerby, who are both suffering from lower-body injuries, are day-to-day.

Defenseman Henrik Tallinder (blood clot) and center Jacob Josefson (wrist) are out for the Devils.

Stat Pack:


~Brodeur's 24th career playoff shutout was his first since April 23, 2009, against the Hurricanes, and only his fourth since his Game 7 goose egg against the Anaheim Ducks in the 2003 Final. On top of that,
Brodeur also notched his second assist of the series on Thursday and now has 10 career playoff helpers.

~The Panthers on Thursday were shut out for the fourth time in 35 playoff games. The team's 4-0 setback in Game 4 against the Devils was the franchise's worst postseason shutout -- it had lost 3-0 two other times.

~The Devils are 13-5 all-time in Game 5's when tied 2-2 in a best-of-seven series, including a 7-3 mark on the road.

~Florida is 1-1 all-time in Game 5's when tied 2-2 in a best-of-seven series, winning both of those series during the 1996 playoffs.

~Brian Campbell has scored at least one postseason goal with four different teams throughout his career, tied for the third most among active defensemen.

~Between the regular season and postseason, the Panthers have scored on 21.2 percent of their power-play chances at home this season, the fourth-best mark in the league.
Florida went 3-for-7 (42.9 percent) on the power play in its first two home games in this series.


Puck Drop:


DeBoer was asked if he expects even greater intensity as the series now shifts to Florida on Saturday. "I would assume more of the same with what we've seen already," DeBoer said. "It's coming down to the end here,
the rubber hits the road and it's two out of three. The emotions are high and you have two hard-working teams. I expect more of the same in Florida."

Nice GDT.
Game will be most important game, so far, for Panthers. Historically winner of the fifth game most likely takes the series (not to mention that winner of 7th game takes series for sure):
"In the history of the NHL conference quarterfinals, the team that wins Game 5 is 74-53 (.583) in the possible clincher in Game 6 and takes the series 79 percent of the time (100-27). If the Panthers win, visiting teams are 32-23 (.582) in the sixth game and 41-14 (.745) in the series."

Section 331 row 3 in the Lexus club level tonight boys. About 20 mins away from my hotel now. So stoked!!!! Who else is going?

RainingRats 04-21-2012 12:06 PM

Hopefully Garrison will be good to go. I'm guessing Flash has been playing with a minor injury.

I really hope Versteeg has one of those good games he's capable of having. We need someone to step up offensively.

And please, no slow starts to any period or dumb penalties. This is a make or break game.

We've been saying it all season but this is a MUST WIN.

billysbreakdown 04-21-2012 12:19 PM

Steeger has had enough off-nights. Can't remember the last time he scored. We need him back NOW.

And once again, ALL vCash on us tonight, right SoupyFIN?!

3-2 Panthers.

My Tivo shows it in the guide on FS Florida, set it up to tape, gonna be there section 413 Row 10

FlaPnthrsPunk 04-21-2012 12:49 PM

It's going to take a 60 minute effort from everyone, especially the top line who was almost non-existant in the last game. They have to come strong in the 1st period and keep it up throughout the entire game. No excuses about not showing up tonight.
