Devils Vs. Panthers, NHL Playoffs 2012 Game 6: Steve Bernier Puts NJ Up 1-0 At First Intermission

The New Jersey Devils are fighting for their lives at home against the Florida Panthers. The Devils, the Eastern Conference's No. 6 seed, are down 3-2 to the third-seeded Panthers in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. After a relatively quiet first 16 and a half minutes that didn't see a single penalty, the Devils' Steve Bernier broke through.

It was an incredibly tough angle to score from and Bernier, a former Panther, couldn't have picked a better time to score his second goal of the series. The Devils managed 13 shots on goals against Panthers goalie Scott Clemmensen, while the Panthers got just six against Martin Brodeur. The Devils defense came to play so far.
