NEWARK, N.J. - New Jersey defenceman Adam Larsson broke a tie with 9:25 left in the third period, and the Devils earned a come-from-behind 3-2 win over the slumping Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday night.

Larsson, who played in just his third game this season, capped a furious comeback in which the Devils (6-3-2) erased a 2-1 deficit in a span of 1:41.

Larsson snapped a shot past goalie Anton Forsberg, who made his NHL debut.

Earlier in the third, Adam Henrique scored a power play-goal ? his fourth tally of the season ? off an assist from Jaromir Jagr. Marek Zidlicky got New Jersey even at 1 with a power-play goal in the second period.

Jack Skille and Nick Foligno scored for the Blue Jackets (4-7), who lost their fifth straight game.
