Devil of a game

Please tell me you didn't miss the Devils-Rangers game on Versus (sorry, DirecTV people). Had to be the greatest scoreless tie through OT in history. Martin Brodeur and Henrik Lundqvist combined to make 96 saves through regulation and OT (51 by Brodeur), and seven more in the shootout before Patrik Elias beat Lundqvist to give the Devils the win. Ales Kotalik was one of the Rangers foiled by Brodeur in the shootout.

Brodeur's 51 saves are the most in his career among his 107 shutouts. It was just the second scoreless tie he's been involved with; the other was against Dominik Hasek and the Sabres in the Meadowlands in 1996. That game ended 0-0 as there were no shootouts back then.

Check out the highlights here. Plenty of saves to watch.
