Devils look to get even in Tampa

Apr 18, 2007 - 2:21 PM New Jersey at Tampa Bay 7:00 pm EDT Eastern Conference quarterfinals Tampa Bay leads, 2-1

TAMPA, Florida (Ticker) -- The second-seeded New Jersey Devils seek to get even with the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game Four of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals.

The Lightning took a two-games-to-one lead in the series with a 3-2 win here on Monday.

The series shifts back to New Jersey for Game Five on Friday.

For the Devils to even the series, they'll need to figure out a way to slow down Vincent Lecavalier and Martin St. Louis. Lecavalier scored his fourth goal of the series in the Game Three win and St. Louis, who has six points in the three playoff games, assisted on all three Tampa Bay tallies on Monday.

Vaclav Prospal scored the game-winner for the Lightning with 6:29 left in the the third period when he tipped Lecavalier's wrist shot past netminder Martin Brodeur, who has a 3.03 goals-against average and an .871 save percentage in the series.

"We've got one more game here to gain our home-ice advantage back," Brodeur said. "Like Tampa wanted to win one game in our building, we're faced to have to win a game here to regain it."

Zach Parise has four goals in the series for New Jersey, which outshot the Lightning, 32-24 in Game Three.
