Devils Edged By Maple Leafs in OT Shootout
James Reimer made 43 saves and all three Toronto players scored in the shootout to lead the Maple Leafs to a 4-3 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Friday night.
Tyler Bozak Tim Connolly and Nazam Kadri tallied against Martin Brodeur in the shootout. The Maple Leafs blew a two-goal lead in the third period before winning for only the fifth time in 22 games (5-15-2).
Ilya Kovalchuk and Zach Parise scored against Reimer on the Devils’ first two shootout shots, but Reimer made a pad save on Patrik Elias, and Kadri got the winner with a spectacular side to side move against Brodeur.
Bozak, Kadri and former Devil David Steckel scored for Toronto in regulation. Jacob Josefson, Parise and Adam Henrique countered for New Jersey, which limited Toronto to 17 shots.
