Devils end streak, finally win in shootout
NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -- Jacob Josefson scored the lone goal in the shootout, and Cory Schneider made it stand up as the New Jersey Devils ended their tiebreaker frustration with a come-from-behind 2-1 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday night.
Michael Ryder forced overtime for New Jersey, scoring the tying goal with 3:27 left in regulation. The Devils earned the shootout victory after losing all 13 last season and one other this season.
Josefson, the Devils' second shootout shooter, lifted a shot over sprawling goalie Ondrej Pavelec.
New Jersey earned its first home victory in four games and snapped the Jets' two-game winning streak.
Blake Wheeler, who led the Jets with 28 goals last season, netted his fourth of the season in the first period.
