Marc Staal's Shot Takes Funny Hop Off Glass, Beats Martin Brodeur To Tie Score, 1-1

Hear those "Maaaaarty! Maaaaarty!" chants at Madison Square Garden? Yep, they're warranted.

The Devils goaltender took himself out of position, and when a Marc Staal shot went high and off the glass behind Brodeur's goal, the bounce somehow found its way off the goaltender's pad and into the back of the net.

Maybe it's just an unlucky bounce, but Brodeur is certainly to blame a little bit for this one. He was simply way too far out of the goal to begin with, and when the puck took its funny hop, he couldn't get himself in the proper position to make the save.

Just as in Game 1, when the Rangers scored a goal with a shot from the point in the third period, they've started to get some energy going following their tally. Can the Devils survive the surge, or will New York carry it to a lead in the hockey game?
