EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey (Ticker) -- The New Jersey Devils
seek a third straight win Wednesday as they host the Carolina
The Devils are 3-1-1 in their last five games after Scott
Clemmensen recorded his first NHL shutout in his first
appearance in more than two years and Turner Stevenson collected
two goals and an assist in Tuesday's 3-0 win at Pittsburgh.
All-Star goaltender Martin Brodeur has not played in consecutive
games for the first time since the middle of the 1997-98
season, but could be in the nets Wednesday. He is 20-12-9 with
a 1.89 goals-against average, .924 save percentage. He also has
a league-leading nine shutouts.
The 31-year-old Brodeur made 30 saves and Sergei Brylin scored a
power-play goal in a 2-1 victory over Carolina on October 11.
New Jersey is 5-2-2 in its last nine games against Carolina.
The Hurricanes on Tuesday acquired right wing Justin Williams
from the Philadelphia Flyers for defenseman Danny Markov to help
a moribund offense that ranks last in the NHL with 87 goals.
But Williams, who had six goals and 20 assists for Philadelphia,
registered only one shot on goal in a 3-1 loss to the Ottawa
Senators on Tuesday.
Carolina, which recorded a season-low 14 shots, is 1-4-1 in its
last six contests.
