Elias, Brodeur star as Devils blank Islanders

Oct 2, 2008 - 1:43 AM UNIONDALE, New York (Ticker) -- Patrik Elias scored a goal and set up another, leading the New Jersey Devils to a 3-0 victory over the New York Islanders in preseason action on Wednesday.

Zach Parise and defenseman Anssi Salmela also scored and reigning Vezina Trophy winner Martin Brodeur stopped all 17 shots he faced for New Jersey.

Parise opened the scoring with 5:36 left in the first, when he collected a loose puck and skated past defenseman Jack Hillen before backhanding a shot past Joey MacDonald for his fourth goal of the preseason. MacDonald was starting for Rick DiPietro, who is recovering from offseason knee surgery.

Elias doubled the lead 5:21 into the second period with a slap shot from the left faceoff circle that beat MacDonald to the stick side. Salmela capped the scoring with 5:57 left, when he took a feed from Elias and blasted a slap shot past the netminder from the high slot.

MacDonald stopped 19 shots for New York, which was outshot, 10-4, in the first period.
