'The first two shooters for both sides missed, before Ales Kotalik beat Brodeur with a backhander that he lifted over the netminder's stick. Gionta countered with his goal, and after Brodeur made a stick save on Thomas Vanek, Elias swung wide coming out of the neutral zone, and from between the circles beat Ryan Miller with a hard wrister that rang off the inside of the left post.'
