The Penguins played a smart game by working hard to win puck battles along the board and none better than the work by Sidney Crosby, Chris Kunitz and Pascal Dupuis on defensemen Robert Bortuzzo's first NHL goal.
Play all starts with Craig Adams along the RW boards at the top of his blue line passing the puck up to Kunitz, who skates the puck up the ice to the RW boards to the offensive blue line.
As you can see in this shot, Kunitz skates hard to the line with three Devils looking at him and Crosby pushing to the left to get time and space.
Kunitz has no choice but to try to dump the puck into the LW corner, where Brodeur gets his stick on the puck and deflects it up into the glass. Crosby wins the race to the puck and reverses the flow by passing the puck along the boards to the RW side of the ice. Racing to the puck is Kunitz in the corner.
You can see here, Kunitz just gets enough of the puck to move it behind then net where a hard charging Dupuis is on the ice for Adams and wins the race to the puck to Brodeur's right behind the net.
The puck works it way to Krys Barch and Crosby is about to make him look like a statue with the puck.
And here's Crosby stealing the puck
Crosby quickly moves the puck up the center of the ice, just getting by Jacob Josefsen's stick.
Here's the big bomb from Bortuzzo
Finally, here's Brodeur looking out of sorts as the puck hits the back of the net.
