NEWARK, N.J. - Travis Zajac scored in the fifth round of the shootout, lifting the New Jersey Devils to a 2-1 victory over the New York Islanders in a preseason game Thursday night.
The Devils got on the scoreboard first, getting a power-play goal on a slap shot from Mike Cammalleri just 3:16 into the game. Cammalleri, signed in the off-season to help the team's sagging offence, scored his first New Jersey goal on assits by Damien Brunner and Zajac.
The Islanders tied the score at 4:51 of the third period when career minor leaguer Kael Mouillierat scored on a deflection of a shot by Scott Mayfield. The shot bounced on the ice and slid past Devils goalie Cory Schneider.
Schneider stopped 19 shots and the Islanders' Jaroslav Halak also had 19 saves.
