Travis Zajac, who put the Devils ahead 2-1 early in the third period, said the Devils' goal was to send Brodeur out a winner.
"I don't think we have to change everything," center Travis Zajac said. "There are some things we need to get better at. If we can find some more offensive while keeping our defensive game the same, we'll be in good shape. Consistently we have to put winning streaks together during the season. We just weren't able to do that this season. Other teams that made the playoffs put three or four or five of those together. We left points on the table."
