Zidlicky scores late in OT, lifts Devils over Panthers 2-1

NEWARK, N.J. - Marek Zidlicky scored with 2.1 seconds showing on the overtime clock to lift the New Jersey Devils to a stirring 2-1 win over the Florida Panthers 2-1 on Saturday night.

With just over 3 seconds to go, the Devils called a timeout before the final faceoff. Travis Zajac beat Marcel Goc on the draw, and Jaromir Jagr nudged the puck back to the top of the right circle to Zidlicky, who ripped a shot that beat screened goalie Tim Thomas.

Michael Ryder extended his goal streak to four games, and Cory Schneider made 29 saves in giving New Jersey its second straight win.

Nick Bjugstad had the lone goal for the Panthers. The frustrated Thomas stormed off the ice at the end of his 34-save performance.

Quote of the Day

I'm hoping Bob [Murray] didn't go out and get Dany Heatley just to get someone. I'm sure he's excited and motivated.
