DEVILS 4, PANTHERS 0
: Martin Brodeur made 25 saves for his NHL-record 24th career playoff shutout as host New Jersey leveled its Eastern Conference quarterfinal series at two games apiece.

Brodeur, who got the hook 2:18 into the second period of Game 3 after allowing three goals on 12 shots, was unbeatable in Game 4 to pass retired netminder Patrick Roy for the record. It was Brodeur's 101st playoff victory.

New Jersey captain Zach Parise opened the scoring in the second period when he tipped in a shot on the power play for his second goal of the series.

The Devils blew the game open in the third period with goals from Steve Bernier, Travis Zajac and Ilya Kovalchuk.

Scott Clemmensen, who was making his first career playoff start, stopped 23 of the 27 shots he faced.

The scene shifts back to Florida for Game 5 on Saturday.
