2001 Playoffs

New Jersey vs. Toronto

Shayne Corson, Sergei Berezin and Mats Sundin scored for the Toronto Maple Leafs who beat the New Jersey Devils 3-1 to even the series two games apiece.

The spotlight after the game was on Tie Domi's blatant elbow to the head of New Jersey defenseman Scott Niedermayer with just 7.4 seconds left.

Niedermayer was carried off the ice on a stretcher but had the strength to walk into the dressing room at the end of the game. Domi was given a match penalty for deliberate attempt to injure and will be facing a possible suspension.

"Disgusting," said forward John Madden. "Irresponsible, a person like that shouldn't be given the right to run around with a hockey stick in his hand and play in the league."

"There's a way to get back at the Maple Leafs and the best way is to win the next game," Holik said.
