They last met in a Conference finals in 1994. In that series, the Rangers rebounded from being down three games to two and win the final pair of games for a seven game series victory. You might say that has little relevance eighteen years later and I would agree. However, it should be noted, that the New Jersey goaltender in 1994 was none other than the same guy who will be in net tonight for the Devils by the name of Martin Brodeur.

Brodeur is now forty years of age, but continues to provide a solid effort night in and night out for New Jersey. After the wakeup call of being pulled from the quarterfinal series against the Panthers in game three, all Brodeur has done is go 7 wins, 2 losses with a 1.74 goals against average and a save percentage of .933.

His counterpart on New York is no slouch either. Henrik Lundqvist has been impressive throughout the season and the playoffs thus far. He has had exceptional success in his career versus the Devils with a 25-11-5 overall mark. His goals against average in those forty one games was 1.79 and a save percentage of .936.
