Devils goalie Martin Brodeur makes one of his 26 saves Thursday night en route to a 4-0 victory over the visiting Panthers, enabling New Jersey to even the best-of-seven series at 2-2. It marked Brodeur's 24th career playoff shutout — moving him past Patrick Roy and alone into first place on the NHL's all-time postseason shutout list.
