Devils Vs. Rangers, 2012 NHL Playoffs Game 4: Devils Lead 2-0 After First Period

Attempting to even their best-of-seven series 2-2, the New Jersey Devils got off to a good start in Game 4 with two first-period goals.

Bryce Salvador started the scoring for the Devils, beating Henrik Lundqvist 8:10 into the game. Salvador's shot somehow managed to get through a group of bodies in front of the net to beat the Rangers goalie.

New Jersey center Travis Zajac extended the Devils' lead a few minutes later with his sixth goal of the postseason. Zajac took a pass from Zach Parise and fired a slap shot by Lundqvist.

New Jersey outshot the Rangers 12-7 in the first period. Neither team was able to capitalize on their lone power-play opportunities.
