Elias' goal in shootout and Hedberg's 3 saves give Devils 3-2 win over Jets

NEWARK, N.J. - Patrik Elias scored the only goal of the shootout, and Johan Hedberg stopped all three Winnipeg attempts as the New Jersey Devils posted a 3-2 victory over the Jets on Sunday night.

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.

Quote of the Day

I just wanted to do something to take my mind off the shot and let me relax a little bit. It seemed like the fans liked it. I'm glad I was able to score.
