The Devils did earn the win, sort of.
Jamie Langenbrunner scored his second goal of the game with 1:11 gone in overtime and the New Jersey Devils, who allowed three straight third-period goals to blow a two-goal lead, beat the Boston Bruins 4-3 on Thursday night.
The Bruins got goals from Chuck Kobasew, Marc Savard, and Dennis Wideman to take a 3-2 lead. With less than two minutes to go, Patrik Elias beat Tim Thomas with his 22nd goal to tie the game and send it into overtime, where the Devils scored within the first two minutes for the win.
Tim Thomas finished with 26 saves in 30 chances.
