David Clarkson's Redirection Goal Gives New Jersey Devils 3-2 Lead

In Game 1, it was the New York Rangers that took an early third-period lead on a Dan Girardi goal. From that point, New York took over the game and waltzed to victory. Could it be reversed in Game 2? David Clarkson's redirection goal on an Adam Henrique point shot gave the Devils the 3-2 lead just 2:31 into the period.

It's not the same story following the goal, though. The Rangers turned up the gas after falling behind for the second time in the hockey game, and they've even begun to dictate the pace of the game a little bit, picking up at least three scoring chances and a power play opportunity after an ill-advised interference penalty against Steve Bernier.

A clean hit from Bernier, no doubt, but he delivered it a bit too soon in anticipation of Marc Staal getting to a loose puck. You have to actually let him get to that puck before you can hit him, man. The Devils killed the penalty but New York doesn't seem to be going down easily.
