What a game in Newark! The New Jersey Devils defeated the New York Rangers 4-3 after overtime after a strong comeback. Severson gets the Golden Gate.
The Devils start the game better and can pressure the Rangers early. However, the first blow falls on the other side.
After a pass from Lafreniere, ex-demon Vesey outlasted several of his former teammates and held off Vanecek after 1:34 to take the lead.
Towards the end of the first half, the Devils have a great chance of tying it by two men, but the Rangers can handle the pressure.
In the second third, the guards can face the course of the game. After 3:28 minutes, Gauthier is on the spot, who loops around Vanesque and puts the puck into the net to make it 2-0.
In the middle of the second period, Hughes brought the Devils to 1: 2, the blow is well deserved at this point (9:24). But a little later, the Rangers attacked again: Kreider landed a rebound after a shot by Miller to make it 3: 1 (13:15).
Hughes provides the OT, and Severson lets the devils roar
In the final third, the Devils come close again. Jesper Brett hammers the puck into the net with a powerful shot to make it 2:3.
A little later, the hosts were rewarded for their effort: Hughes equalized with his second goal.
Both teams then look for the decision, but it must take place in overtime. There the demons crown their race to catch up. Having won the puck in his own area, Severson moves in front of the opponent’s goal, where he does not give Rangers goalkeeper Shesterkin a chance and scores to make the score 4: 3.
This leaves the Devils in third place in the Capital Division, ahead of the Rangers. The Rangers’ three-game winning streak ended.
