|Brodeur spots Clarkson at center...
Clarkson scored New Jersey’s second goal after collecting a splendid outlet pass from Brodeur at center ice.
He collected the puck, breaking in one-on-one against Tim Thomas, and lifted a backhand over the fallen goalie for a 2-0 advantage.
Clarkson was amazed with Brodeur's outlet pass that hit him in stride and knew he had to make it count.

As it turns out, Brodeur did see Clarkson.
"(Zdeno) Chara just misfired and tried to dump it into the corner and I stepped out," Brodeur explained. "I was going to go down the glass at first -- the safe way. But I turned around and there was just a big lane and I saw David kind of curl and said, 'Oh my God, I'm going to try it,' and made a good pass.

"I would have given him grief," Brodeur said. "I don't feed a guy on a breakaway too often; so it better work."
This time, it did.
