Devils Lose Again in OT
Ryan O’Reilly scored a power-play goal 28 seconds into overtime and the Colorado Avalanche rallied for a 2-1 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Monday night.
The Avalanche tied the game with 1:47 left in regulation on a goal by PA Parenteau after they pulled goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere with 2:30 remaining.
Devils defenseman Andy Greene was called for a penalty shortly after Parenteau’s goal, and the man advantage carried into overtime. O’Reilly ended it by tipping Matt Duchene’s pass by goalie Cory Schneider for his 21st of the season, giving Colorado its fourth straight win.
It marked the third straight game in which New Jersey has given up a late goal to force overtime. The Devils have lost their last two.
Ryan Carter scored in the first period for New Jersey.
Giguere finished with 27 saves.
