New Jersey vs. Carolina

Rod Brind'Amour scored 46 seconds into overtime as the Carolina Hurricanes stayed alive with a 3-2 victory over the New Jersey Devils in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinal.

Playing without injured forwards Ron Francis and Shane Willis, both out with concussion caused by Scott Stevens' fierce hits, the Hurricanes gave up just two power plays and got 32 saves from Irbe.

Sami Kapanen and David Tanabe also scored power-play goals, and Kapanen set up Brind'Amour on the first shot of the extra period.
