Overtime Goal Lifts Devils Past Bruins

This article is more than 11 years old.

The New Jersey Devils battle back to beat the Bruins 4-3 in overtime.

Patrik Elias scored his second goal for the Devils with 1:44 left in OT. Zach Parise also scored twice for New Jersey, including a goal with just under six minutes left in regulation. The score was upheld when video review showed he hadn't raised his stick too high in deflecting a pass past Bruins' goalie Tim Thomas.

Zdeno Chara, Glen Murray and Dennis Wideman had put the Bruins ahead with three first-period goals.

Martin Brodeur made 23 saves for New Jersey to extend the team's winning streak to eight. The Bruins are 3-3.

Thomas left the game with just over a minute left when he fell awkwardly trying to snare a deflected shot. He was replaced by Tuukka Rask.

Bruins Coach Claude Julien says Thomas' injury is still being evaluated. He says he doesn't blame the rookie Rask for giving up the winning goal.
