Devils Rally Past Ducks Late, Winning 4-3 In OT
ANAHEIM (AP) — Jaromir Jagr scored the tying goal with 1:01 left in regulation, and the New Jersey Devils ended Anaheim’s eight-game home winning streak to open the season with a 4-3 victory over the Ducks on Wednesday night.
Travis Zajac got credit for the winning goal at 2:58 of overtime, but the Ducks put it in their own net. Ben Lovejoy hit teammate Corey Perry with the puck while attempting to clear the crease, and it caromed past Jonas Hiller to end the longest season-opening home winning streak in Anaheim history.
Ryan Getzlaf scored the tiebreaking power-play goal, and Nick Bonino had a goal and an assist for the NHL-leading Ducks, who have lost five straight. Anaheim was the league’s only remaining unbeaten home team.
Martin Brodeur stopped 22 shots for the Devils.
