NEW YORK, N.Y. - Lee Stempniak scored at 3:07 of overtime and the New Jersey Devils finally gave new coach John Hynes a victory with a 2-1 win over the New York Rangers on Sunday.

Adam Henrique, who scored early in the second period, made the cross-ice pass that Stempniak fired past his former teammate Henrik Lundqvist to end the 3-on-3 overtime.

Derek Stepan, who scored for the Rangers in the opening minutes, had hit the crossbar just before New Jersey won for the first time in five games. The Rangers have lost three straight after opening the season with three victories.

Cory Schneider finished with 26 saves for New Jersey. Lundqvist stopped 22 shots.
