Jagr leads Devils' late rally for 4-3 OT victory, handing Ducks their 1st home loss

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Jaromir Jagr scored the tying goal with 1:01 left in regulation, and the New Jersey Devils ended Anaheim's eight-game home winning streak to open the season with a 4-3 victory over the Ducks on Wednesday night.

Travis Zajac got credit for the winning goal at 2:58 of overtime, but the Ducks put it in their own net. Ben Lovejoy hit teammate Corey Perry with the puck while attempting to clear the crease, and it caromed past Jonas Hiller to end the longest season-opening home winning streak in Anaheim history.

Ryan Getzlaf scored the tiebreaking power-play goal, and Nick Bonino had a goal and an assist for the NHL-leading Ducks, who have lost five straight. Anaheim was the league's only remaining unbeaten home team.

Martin Brodeur stopped 22 shots for the Devils.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
