Blackhawks Vs. Devils Final Score: New Jersey Edges Chicago 2-1 In A Shootout

The Chicago Blackhawks out-shot the New Jersey Devils 38-22 during their Tuesday night meeting, but the Devils' future Hall of Fame goalie wasn't about to let his team lose. Martin Brodeur was brilliant throughout and made several keys stops in the decisive shootout to lead New Jersey to a 2-1 victory. The 'Hawks will get a point out of it, which gives them 93 on the season. New Jersey gets its 92nd point while improving its record to 43-28-6.

New Jersey took a 1-0 lead into the second period, but Chicago would force overtime when Brent Seabrook finally beat Brodeur. Seabrook's eighth goal of the season was set-up by teammates Dave Bolland and Niklas Hjalmarsson.

After neither team could score in the five minute extra period, the New Jersey goalie would again shine in the shootout. Brodeur only allowed one goal (to Patrick Sharp) and made two saves as the Devils win the shootout round 2-1. Travis Zajac, the Devils' fifth shooter, scored the final goal.
