The way the season has gone for the New Jersey Devils, having the Detroit Red Wings score on their first two shots against Martin Brodeur wasn’t surprising.

What can go wrong has gone wrong for the once-proud Devils, and the Red Wings were just the latest team to take advantage.

Tomas Holmstrom and Danny Cleary beat Brodeur in the opening 1:42, and the Red Wings handed the slumping Devils a season-high fifth straight loss with a 4-1 decision on Saturday night.

“I don’t think I’ve seen that before,” veteran Red Wings defenseman Nicklas Lidstrom said of Brodeur being beaten on the first two shots. “It was a tough break on the first one, Holmstrom tipped it. The other, Cleary came down the wing. It was a tough start for them, but a great start for us after playing last night.”
