Martin Brodeur and the New Jersey Devils are winning and gaining confidence. Now, they get to face a team they have not lost to in almost four years Friday night when the Montreal Canadiens visit the Prudential Center.
New Jersey (12-10-2) has won its last eight meetings with Montreal (13-8-3) dating to a 3-2 road loss on March 20, 2004. Since that defeat, the Devils have outscored the Canadiens 29-16, including 12-4 in 2006-07 to sweep the four-game season series.
New Jersey's domination of Montreal has been helped by outstanding play from Brodeur, who has a 1.98 goals-against average and a shutout while starting each game during the eight-game win streak. In 50 career games against the Canadiens, the three-time Vezina Trophy winner is 33-12-0 with five ties, a 1.74 GAA and seven shutouts.
