NHL Game Summary - New Jersey at Los Angeles



(Thursday, November 21st)

Final Score: New Jersey 2, Los Angeles 1 (OT)

Los Angeles, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Jaromir Jagr scored the game-winner 2:30 into overtime to lift the New Jersey Devils to a 2-1 triumph over the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday at Staples Center.

Jagr was whistled for holding 17 seconds into overtime, but LA's Dustin Brown received a diving penalty on the play and the teams skated 3-on-3.

"With all respect to Brown I am not that strong," Jagr said of the controversial call. "I grabbed him and held him and whatever but I am not the terminator and he is very strong so I think he acted a little bit, but I also held him."

Just after both minors ended, Marek Zidlicky threw the disc to the slot for a cutting Jagr, who controlled the puck between the circles before stuffing it home from the low right side for his 690th career goal, tying him with Mario Lemieux for ninth on the NHL's all-time list.

Jagr's game-winner was the 121st of his career to match Gordie Howe for the most such goals in NHL history.

Ryan Carter scored New Jersey's lone regulation goal 5:52 into the third, while Cory Schneider stopped 34 shots for the Devils, who earned their fifth win in six tries despite managing just 15 shots.

Justin Williams netted LA's only goal, while Ben Scrivens made just 13 saves for the Kings, who had their four-game win streak halted.

With the game scoreless after 40 minutes, Carter put the Devils on the board just under six minutes into the final frame when he worked his way from behind the LA net and into the right circle before backhanding the disc past the short-side of Scrivens to make it 1-0 at 5:52.

The Kings countered just over a minute later, as Anze Kopitar carried the puck down the left wing and rifled a shot from the circle that snuck through Schneider and trickled through the crease before Williams tapped it home to tie the game at 6:57.

Early on, the Kings peppered Schneider with 27 shots over the first two periods, but the New Jersey netminder turned away all comers.

"We definitely got lots of shots and lots of opportunities," Kopitar said. "We didn't bear down on them. That was the key to their success."

Scrivens faced a much lighter workload over the opening two periods, as he stopped the only five shots he faced to keep the game scoreless.

Game Notes

The Kings are 6-0-2 in their last eight games ... Kopitar has 11 points in his last 10 games ... The Kings have allowed two goals or less in eight straight games ... New Jersey went 0-for-2 on the power play while the Kings failed to score on four power-play chances ... Schneider improved to 2-5-3 in 10 starts this season.
