New Jersey Devils (25-27-11 61pts) v.s San Jose Sharks (27-33-4 58pts)
Good evening Devils fans! Tonight your New Jersey Devils are looking to continue their winning ways as they take on the San Jose Sharks. New Jersey is currently on a three game winning streak and are hoping to keep that going. Travis Zajac and Nikita Gusev got things going on the scoreboard first for the Devils as they took a 2-0 leading going into the second period and got off to a great start.
However, period two saw the Devils undo the great start that they had. Mario Ferraro scored his second goal of the season to bring the Sharks within one goal. Then moments later, Marcus Sorensen would tie the score up 2-2 as he scored his seventh goal of the season while the Sharks were short handed. 2-2 would be the score heading into the third period.
Period three remained scoreless as each team traded some chances but both were unable to convert which would force a 3 on 3 overtime. In overtime, Logan Couture would be the hero and scored the game winner. The New Jersey Devils fell in overtime to the San Jose Sharks 3-2. New Jersey is back in action on Saturday night as they take on the Los Angeles Kings.
