SUNRISE, Fla. – John Madden scored twice in the New Jersey Devils’ 4-1 victory over the Florida Panthers on Saturday night, giving Brent Sutter his first NHL coaching victory.
Andy Greene and Mike Mottau also scored for the Devils, who opened the season with a 3-1 loss at Tampa Bay the previous night.
Kevin Weekes started in goal for the Devils and stopped 32 shots. He was particularly strong in the first period when Florida outshot New Jersey 21-9.
Weekes played a great game in goal in place of Martin Brodeur who couldn’t play after having to tend to some personal issues the day before the game.
Unfortunately Sutter’s win made my team, The Florida Panthers, 0-2 so far this year. Florida losing 5-2 to The New York Rangers to open the season.
The Panthers haven’t impressed me so far this season, but I’m not giving up hope for the 2007-08 season. Actually if my health permits, I may see a few games in person this year.
