The Devils forced Panthers coach Kevin Dineen
to pull starter Jose Theodore

The Panthers, who rallied from a 3-0 deficit to open a 4-3 lead through two periods, chased New Jersey starter Martin Brodeur
in favor of Johan Hedberg
2:18 into the second after the future Hall of Fame goalie yielded three goals on 12 shots.
