Ryan Carter and Stephen Gionta scored in regulation time for the Devils, who won for only the second time in nine games since top goalie Martin Brodeur was sidelined with a sore back. Hedberg, who was lifted in a 6-3 loss to Carolina on Saturday night, had 23 saves through overtime. He then turned away Blake Wheeler, Evander Kane and Andrew Ladd in the shootout.
Elias netted the winner with a backhander on the Devils' last attempt that just got under goalie Ondrej Pavelec, who made 25 saves before the tiebreaker.
