New Jersey Devils
Patrik Elias scored a power-play goal 40 seconds into overtime to give the New Jersey Devils a 3-2 victory over the Dallas Stars on Thursday night.
The Stars had allowed 18 goals in their past three games en route to three straight losses. It was a different story on Thursday in New Jersey, but unfortunately, the result was the same.
Dallas had a surprisingly strong first half of the campaign, but has fallen on hard times of late, and with this setback dropped to 1-8-1 in the month of February.
Veteran winger Jamie Langenbrunner is returning to Dallas after the New Jersey Devils traded their captain to the Pacific Division-leading Stars.
An overtime gamble backfired on the New Jersey Devils. Loui Eriksson and the Dallas Stars happily made them pay for the mistake.
