Things went from bad to worse in the third period for the Devils. A 1-1 tie turned into a 3-1 deficit with less than seven minutes to play, and they seemed destined for another disappointing finish.
Contrary to how the entire month of November went, the Devils found a way to — partially — dig out of that hole.
A power-play goal by Jesper Bratt cut the deficit to one before a Taylor Hall 6-on-5 goal tied the game with 1:56 left in regulation to send the game to overtime, cheap nhl jerseys from china
though the Devils ended up salvaging just one point.
Mark Scheifele scored the game-winning goal with 16.3 seconds left in the extra frame to give the Winnipeg Jets at 4-3 win on Saturday at Prudential Center in Newark.
Defenseman Josh Morrisey and forward Andrew Copp scored the Jets goals in the third period to give Winnipeg its two-goal lead before the Devils rallied.
A Marcus Johansson goal opened the scoring at 6:45 of the first period when he stayed with his own blocked shot to snap home a dangerous chance. His first attempt hit a Jets defenseman before he settled the puck in the slot, where his shot found the inside of the left post.
The Devils dictated play over the opening 20 minutes, but Johansson’s goal was the only thing they had to show for their efforts. Still, that had them up 1-0 at intermission.
