Red Wings rally from down three, top Devils in SO

Mike G. Morreale  - NHL.com Staff Writer | Saturday, 11.29.2014 / 12:24 AM

NEWARK, N.J. -- Gustav Nyquist scored in the third round of the shootout to help the Detroit Red Wings complete a come-from-behind 5-4 victory against the New Jersey Devils at Prudential Center on Friday.

The Red Wings scored three unanswered goals in the second and third periods to pull into a 4-4 tie before winning their first shootout in four tries this season. The Devils are 1-3 in the shootout.

Red Wings rookie goalie Petr Mrazek, who was making his second start this season, stopped Jacob Josefson, Mike Cammalleri and Michael Ryder in the tiebreaker. The 22-year-old battled back to get his second win of the season after allowing four goals on 16 shots in the first two periods.

"It was my first (NHL) shootout, and I was very excited for it," Mrazek said. "I was watching these guys on video a little bit on how they shoot, and that was helpful. But it's still tough."

Mrazek made 21 saves in regulation and overtime. Devils goalie Cory Schneider, making his 22nd start this season, stopped 28 shots.

Riley Sheahan, Xavier Ouellet, Justin Abdelkader and Drew Miller scored for the Red Wings.

It was the fourth time New Jersey has scored four or more goals (2-0-2). Detroit is 11-0-0 when scoring four of more goals in 2014-15.

Cammalleri scored two power-play goals, and Jaromir Jagr and Peter Harrold had one each for the Devils, who have lost three straight and five of their past six (1-3-2).

In the shootout, Schneider denied Pavel Datsyuk and Tomas Tatar before Nyquist unleashed a bullet into the top-right corner for the only goal in the shootout.

"It was a rough start; we didn't take care of the puck, didn't cut people off and they won the battles in front," Nyquist said. "We found a way to battle back. We had a real strong second and really came at them."

The Red Wings outshot the Devils 32-25, including 17-6 in the second. A key sequence in the game began at 7:39 of the second when the Devils went on a 5-on-3 power play for 1:56.

"That penalty kill gave our team a chance to get back in the game because if they score there, we could be down even more and it would have been hard to come back from that," Miller said.

The Red Wings allowed one shot during the disadvantage to keep within 4-2, basically killing any momentum the Devils might have had to that point.

"We had a chance to extend the lead on the 5-on-3 and didn't, and that was a key moment," Devils coach Peter DeBoer said. "We took some penalties ourselves and lost momentum in the second. You knew they would push back. Detroit is a team that's been very hot and has a lot of depth. I thought we'd have a killer instinct, but we didn't take advantage of [the 5-on-3], and that was our mistake."

The Devils were playing short two forwards for much of the third after Adam Henrique and Travis Zajac sustained injuries. Henrique never returned to the bench for the start of the third because of an upper-body injury, and Zajac went to the locker room with a lower-body injury after taking four shifts in the third.

Henrique and Zajac will be re-evaluated Saturday morning and are questionable for the game Saturday against the New York Islanders on Long Island. DeBoer said that he hasn't determined his starting goalie.

The Red Wings pulled into a 4-4 tie 10:07 into the third when Miller scored his first of the season off a quick release from the slot. Niklas Kronwall made the play happen when he drove to the net and attempted a shot that deflected right onto Miller's stick at the left hash.

"[Tomas] Jurco made a great play to Kronwall, and he went to the net, and when you're not scoring, you have to sit around the net and wait for those rebounds," Miller said. "So I found a rebound, and it went in."

The goal by Miller was his first since scoring against the Devils last March.

"It feels great, and I'm happy to get a big goal for the team," he said.

The Devils will now embark on a three-game road trip that begins Saturday against the Islanders at Nassau Coliseum. The Red Wings, who have won three in a row, will play their next four games at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, beginning Monday against the Vancouver Canucks.

"This was a big character win for us," Nyquist said. "I thought Mrazek really hung in there when he got down early. He was great when he needed to be late in the game, and then in the shootout he was solid."

The Devils opened a 3-1 lead in the first on goals by Jagr, Cammalleri and Harrold.

Jagr's goal to give the Devils a 1-0 lead, off a rebound of a shot taken by Andy Greene at 2:18, moved him into sole possession of sixth place on the NHL's all-time goals list. Jagr's assist on Harrold's goal at 15:18 moved him within one point of Marcel Dionne (1,771 points) for fifth all-time.

The goal by Harrold, who was recalled from the American Hockey League on Nov. 17 and was playing in his second game this season, was his first since March 21, 2013, a span of 48 games.

Sheahan tipped Kronwall's point shot underneath Schneider's right pad at 3:50 of the first to make it 1-1.

The Devils took a 4-1 lead 28 seconds into the second when Cammalleri scored his 10th goal from low in the right circle with New Jersey working the power play.

"We had a healthy lead in this game, so there's no excuses," Cammalleri said. "I think we can't dwell on this and overthink things. We have to pull up our socks and man up, wake up [Saturday] and go play a big one. Mentally, I'm already on to the next one."

The Red Wings cut the deficit to 4-2 when Ouellet, a rookie defenseman, scored his first career NHL goal off a pass from Darren Helm at 1:55.

Abdelkader scored a power-play goal off a one-timer from the slot 12:52 into the second to pull the Red Wings within 4-3. Abdelkader's seventh goal came with seven seconds remaining on a slashing penalty to Stephen Gionta.

Miller then tied it midway through the third period.

"It was good to see [Mrazek] play well after giving up some goals that weren't really his fault," Miller said. "He still came through with some big saves down the stretch. You can tell he maintained his composure and made those big saves when we needed them, including that shootout."
