Devils Beat Panthers 3-2 in Overtime to Force NHL Playoff Game 7

April 25 (Bloomberg) -- Travis Zajac scored in overtime to give the New Jersey Devils a 3-2 victory against the Florida Panthers and force a deciding Game 7 in round one of the National Hockey League playoffs.

Steve Bernier scored his second goal of the series to give the Devils a 1-0 lead in the first period last night at Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.

Ilya Kovalchuk had a power-play goal four minutes, 21 seconds into the second period as the Devils took a 2-0 lead. Florida’s Kris Versteeg and Sean Bergenheim tied the game at 2-2 with goals in a six-minute span midway through the second period.

After a scoreless third period, Zajac’s goal came 5:39 into overtime -- setting up a decisive seventh game tomorrow night at Florida.

In tonight’s only NHL game, the Washington Capitals play the Bruins in Boston in Game 7 of their series. The New York Rangers host Ottawa in the seventh game of their series tomorrow night at Madison Square Garden.
