JAKOB SILFVERBERG hit the post on one shot and just missed with another in regulation, so the young Ottawa Senators right wing wanted to make sure he made the right plays down the stretch - especially in the shootout. "I had a few chances and missed them," said Silfverberg, whose goal in the shootout was the lone tally in the Senators' 2-1 victory over the New Jersey Devils in Newark on Monday. "The one that hit the post, [Devils goalkeeper Martin Brodeur] didn't know where it was, so I really thought I had that one. " However, Silfverberg made up for his earlier misses by setting up Daniel Alfredsson for the tying goal with 11:48 left in regulation, then gave the Senators the win by finally beating Brodeur in the shootout.

MARTIN Brodeur isn't the only New Jersey Devils goalie who knows a thing or two about shutouts. Veteran backup Johan Hedberg made 22 saves for his 22nd career blanking, and Steve Bernier scored two of New Jersey's three third-period goals in the Devils' 3-0 victory over the New York Islanders on Sunday in Uniondale, N.Y. The game was scoreless until Bernier broke the deadlock with a power-play goal with 3:54 remaining. He doubled New Jersey's lead just 1:10 later, and David Clarkson sealed the win with an empty-net goal in the final minute as the Devils snapped a four-game losing streak (0-1-3)

Slightly more than eight minutes remained in the third period, and New Jersey's 1-0 lead over the Rangers was still tenuous when the Devils fans packed into Continental Airlines Arena last night stood in unison during a pause in the riveting action and saluted goalie Martin Brodeur with a long, loud ovation. The Rangers, decidedly outplayed most of the game, had just finished peppering Brodeur with three of their most dangerous shots. First it was Doug Lidster, then Luc Robitaille, then Shane Churla after Robitaille's blast popped out into the crease.

They had no history worth noting. No tradition except as annual first-round playoff losers with questionable character. Last night, though, the New Jersey Devils earned a place in the hearts of their small legion of fans. Now it can be said that the Devils have courage. It's a start in their pursuit of the Stanley Cup. Carrying the weight of a potentially demoralizing and fatiguing 1-0 loss in the fourth overtime of a Game 6 that lasted 6 hours and 12 minutes, the Devils edged the Buffalo Sabres, 2-1, at Meadowlands Arena to grab this seemingly never-ending best-of-seven series, four games to three, and advance to the Eastern Conference semifinals.

Martin Brodeur was pressing one hand against the side of his head, checking to see if his right ear was still attached. With his other hand, he was groping for his mask, which had been dislodged by a vicious slapshot by the Flyers' Kevin Dineen. During this odd third-period sequence, the superb young goalie had become a symbol for his New Jersey Devils, a symbol for a team that has suddenly lost its equilibrium in the Eastern Conference finals. The Devils, who had their way with the Flyers in the first two games at the Spectrum, have gone through a rapid transformation.

There was just one surprise last night when Flyers general manager Bob Clarke, appearing in Ottawa, announced the Canadian Olympic team that will go to Nagano, Japan, in February. Of course, the Flyers' Eric Lindros, Rod Brind'Amour and Eric Desjardins were on it. But Vancouver's Mark Messier wasn't. "I talked to Mark this afternoon, and he reacted with class and dignity, as you would expect, and wished us good luck," Clarke, the GM of the Canadian team, said in a prepared statement.

The Flyers are not the only team in the Atlantic Division to undergo changes in the offseason. New York Rangers: Added centers Chris Drury (Buffalo) and Scott Gomez (New Jersey) to an offense that already had Jaromir Jagr and Brendan Shanahan. Lost Michael Nylander to Washington and traded Matt Cullen to Carolina. Pittsburgh: The Penguins did not have many moves to make since they are loaded, with league MVP Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and Jordan Staal on offense, Ryan Whitney and Sergei Gonchar on defense and Marc-Andre Fleury in net. The biggest moves were signing Crosby to a 5-year, $43 million extension and the additions of Petr Sykora and Darryl Sydor.

While the coach and system have changed this year, the New Jersey Devils are once again a division winner. They captured their third straight Atlantic Division title last night by defeating the visiting Washington Capitals, 1-0. Martin Brodeur made 15 saves and Brian Rolston scored the game-winner with his 20th goal of the season as New Jersey became the first team since the Flyers (1985 to '87) to win three straight division titles. "There was a question mark at the beginning of the season," Rolston said of the coaching switch from Jacques Lemaire to Robbie Ftorek.

Martin Brodeur wanted his extra digit - and he got it. Brodeur become the first NHL goalie since Montreal's Ken Dryden in 1976-77 to post 10 shutouts in a season, leading host New Jersey to a 2-0 victory over Boston last night. "It's always fun to get into that double digit," Brodeur said. "It's something you aim for when you are close. I've just gone out and tried to do my best and this year I got 10. " The shutout, Brodeur's fourth in six starts, lowered his league-leading goals-against average to 1.88.

Here in Philadelphia, we like our sports villains nasty, arrogant, demonstrative. It makes them easier to dislike. When Michael Irvin strutted out of a Texas Stadium tunnel, when Kobe Bryant promised to rip out the 76ers' hearts, when Scott Stevens went on a search-and-destroy mission in a conference finals' seventh game and found Eric Lindros, they touched something visceral, guttural, within every sports fan in this city. They did something, in its way, unforgivable. They won, and in winning, they knew, or at least acted as if they believed, that they were intrinsically better than Philadelphia and its teams and its people.

It was a game the Flyers could not afford to lose, and a lot of people dressed in orange and black left the Wells Fargo Center on Tuesday convinced that they had not lost it. That didn't matter, of course, because referee Tom Kowal was convinced something was not kosher about what looked like Scott Hartnell's game-tying goal with 40 seconds remaining. The men behind the replay curtains up in Toronto washed their hands of the entire issue, claiming what Kowal called on the ice is not reviewable in Canada or any other country.

If the Flyers miss the playoffs by a point, they will look back with disdain at what transpired with 40.1 seconds left Tuesday night at the Wells Fargo Center. Scott Hartnell appeared to score at that point, but the goal was disallowed because referees ruled that the Flyers left winger pushed New Jersey goalie Martin Brodeur into the net. The Devils survived, 2-1, before a howling sellout crowd that booed lustily as referees Tom Kowal and Mark Lemelin skated off the ice after the game.

ON A collision course with Martin Brodeur after being pushed by Devils defenseman Anton Volchenkov, Scott Hartnell had a better view than any replay could provide. He is certain what he saw - and felt. "The defender was right on me. He was the one who made contact with Brodeur first. He put all of his weight on me," Hartnell said. "You can look at it 100 times. I'm pretty sure 100 out of 100 times, it's a goal. " The puck was already in Brodeur's pads. Hartnell made contact with Brodeur, propelling the puck across the goal line - as Wayne Simmonds and 19,967 fans roared for what was to be the game-tying goal.

CLAUDE GIROUX remembers his first goal against Martin Brodeur as a little different than the 113 others he has scored in his 398-game NHL career. The date was Dec. 12, 2009 - part of his first full season in the league - and he used a power-play pass from one future Hall of Famer, Chris Pronger, to beat another in Brodeur. "I think I was a little bit more proud," Giroux said. "He is one of the best goalies I've ever played. " Giroux and the rest of the Flyers are running out of chances to beat him again.

THE NHL'S VIDEO review has been so successful, such a compelling part of its popularity, that other leagues have expanded its use in turn. Major League Baseball has a war room now, the NFL could be about to start one, and even the NBA and NCAA have expanded their use of replay. But the NHL? It carries the ball when it comes to replay, or more accurately, it carries the puck. And that's what it's about. Accuracy. Getting it right. Using the technology available to every cable-paying viewer to strive for an honest result, so that justice is served and, in the case of last night's Flyers-Devils game, the proper number of playoff points are dispersed.

At 42, ageless right winger Jaromir Jagr is showing no signs of slowing down. Fact is, he has been the New Jersey Devils' top forward this season. Jagr will face his former Flyers teammates Tuesday in a key Metropolitan Division matchup at the Wells Fargo Center. "He protects the puck really well and you just have to keep him on the outside," Flyers defenseman Mark Streit said after Monday's practice in Voorhees. Older players like Jagr, Streit said, "take care of their bodies and live a good lifestyle, and it makes a difference.

Maybe Claude Giroux was upset at another loss, this one a 3-0 defeat to struggling New Jersey on Thursday. Maybe he was boiling because the fans booed the Flyers throughout another listless effort. Or maybe he was just disappointed in himself for failing to score a goal in his 21st straight game, including the first 15 this season. Whatever the reason, the Flyers' captain walked out of the Wells Fargo Center and refused to talk to the media after the Flyers fell to 4-10-1.

The New Jersey Devils acquired goalie Cory Schneider from the Vancouver Canucks for the ninth pick in the NHL draft. The Canucks selected center Bo Horvat on Sunday at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. Schneider seems in line to be the eventual successor to Martin Brodeur in net. Schneider was on the market once the Canucks were unable to dump high-priced goalie Roberto Luongo. Brodeur and Johan Hedberg were the oldest goalie tandem in the league last season. Now Schneider, 27, can be groomed to take over for Brodeur, 41, one of the NHL's all-time great goalies.
