Simon Gagne has missed a ton of hockey this season, but in just his second game back since December, he’s made a hell of an impact. He’s been in on at least three solid scoring chances and he’s paced the Kings' fourth line on at least two breakaway attempts. He set up Trevor Lewis on this 2-on-1 attempt that Martin Brodeur just barely stopped.
Lewis deked to Brodeur’s blocker side, the Devils goaltender got his stick on it, and the puck slid along Brodeur’s arm to his body. Should have been a safe outcome for New Jersey, but then the puck just. barely. slid wide of the goal post on Brodeur’s glove-hand side.
Still 0-0, somehow.
