I just watched the end of the game over when I got home and was able to get a good look at the last two goals.
First, Rod Brind'Amour carried the puck into the Devils' zone with 2:20 left in the game, The Devils never got it out or were able to stop play after that. Jussi Jokinen scored exactly 1:00 later. That's quite a long time to be in your zone without a stoppage for the line of Zach Parise, Travis Zajac and Jamie Langenbrunner and the defense pair of Niclas Havelid and Andy Greene.
About 20 seconds before the goal, Havelid blocked a Joni Pitkanen pass that was intended for Brind'Amour for a back-door one-timer from nearly the same spot that Jokinen scored from. But Havelid only pushed the puck out to Tim Gleason at the right point.
Gleason made a big play by diving to keep the puck in at the blue line on an errant pass from Brind'Amour (after Parise blocked Gleason's right point shot). Then Gleason passed across (and over the stick of a diving Langenbrunner) to Pitkanen, who set up Jokinen's one-timer with a similar pass to the one he tried to make to Brind'Amour. On that one, Havelid was closer to the net and could not reach the pass with his stick.
Second, on Eric Staal's winner, Colin White ran out of position to hit Chad LaRose in front of the Devils bench. LaRose made a good pass to Staal, who had a lot of room to carry into the Devils' zone with speed before letting go his shot for the winning goal from the right circle.
Although Brendan Shanahan was back to cover for White in the defensive zone, giving Staal that space and speed in the neutral zone is what made that goal. That and a pretty good shot by Staal.
"We didn't read the situation right," Devils coach Brent Sutter said. "That's part of our stuff that we go through and we talk about. Stuff we don't want to do we did. All it is executing."
