New Jersey (35-27-9) at Ottawa (48-16-6) 7:30 pm EST
OTTAWA (Ticker) - Goaltender Martin Brodeur certainly picked the
wrong time of the season to go into a rare slump.
Brodeur hopes to avoid his first five-game losing streak in four
years Tuesday when the New Jersey Devils visit the Ottawa
Senators in their final meeting of the regular season.
A two-time Vezina Trophy winner and a part of three Stanley Cup
championships with New Jersey, Brodeur has not lost five
straight games since January 7-15, 2002. He has surrendered 16
tallies during his skid and has his highest goals-against
average (2.68) since 1991-1992.
Ottawa has won five straight home games, one shy of a season
high, and looks to win the season series against New Jersey.
Ray Emery made 22 saves for the Senators in a 4-0 victory over
the Devils in their last encounter March 19.
