NEWARK, N.J. --- Martin Brodeur tied Patrick Roy's NHL record for playoff shutouts, making 44 saves in New Jersey's 1-0 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes on Thursday night that moved the Devils within a win of advancing to the second round.

David Clarkson's power-play goal was the difference.

With a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven series, New Jersey can eliminate the Hurricanes on Sunday in Carolina.

FLYERS 3, PENGUINS 0

In Pittsburgh, Arron Asham and Claude Giroux, role players on a team filled with goal scorers, got the first two goals and Philadelphia avoided elimination and forced Game 6 in the Eastern Conference first-round series on Saturday.

The Flyers still have a huge challenge, as they are 0-13 in series they trailed 3-1, and they haven't forced a Game 7 since losing to Edmonton in the 1987 Stanley Cup Finals.

RED WINGS 6, BLUE JACKETS 5

In Columbus, Ohio, Johan Franzen scored on a power play with 46.6 seconds left, giving Detroit a series sweep.
