Nielsen, Bailey, Strome score in SO as Islanders beat Brodeur in his possible final NJ start

NEWARK, N.J. - Frans Nielsen, Josh Bailey and Ryan Strome scored in the shootout, and the New York Islanders beat the New Jersey 3-2 in what might have been Devils goalie Martin Brodeur's final start.

Devils coach Pete DeBoer hasn't said whether the soon-to-be 42 year-old Brodeur will start the season finale against Boston at home on Sunday.

Brodeur, the NHL career leader in wins (687) and shutouts (124) in a 20-year career with New Jersey, is in the last season of his contract. He won three Stanley Cup titles with the Devils.

Cory Schneider is in line to be the Devils' No. 1 goalie of the future.

Ryan Carter and Patrik Elias scored for the Devils, and Anders Lee and Strome had regulation goals for the Islanders in a matchup of teams that failed to make the playoffs this season.

Quote of the Day

If you want to prove people wrong, you've just got to go out and do it. Yeah, we blew 3-2 series leads the last two years, but no one is going remember that if we go out there on Saturday night and beat these guys and go play in the Stanley Cup Final. We need to get back to work and we'll start to do that tomorrow.
