Memory Lane Monday: Canes vs Devils Game 7

On April 28, 2009, the Carolina Hurricanes made history with 31.7 seconds remaining in a playoff game with the New Jersey Devils. After Jussi Jokinen tied the Game 7 contest, Eric Staal stunned the Prudential Center with a game-winning shot. Jokinen’s goal came from a seemingly telepathic pass from fellow Finn Joni Pikanen with less than two minute left.

Ruutu and Whitney earlier shots combined for a 4-3 win over the Devils. Cam Ward also contributed to the victory with 32 saves.
