NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Defenseman Mike Green scored from the right circle at 3:18 of overtime and the Detroit Red Wings handed the New Jersey Devils a rare loss at home with a 5-4 victory Friday night.
Frans Nielsen added two goals, and Dylan Larkin and Anthony Mantha scored one apiece as the Red Wings won their second straight despite losing goalie Jimmy Howard to a lower-body injury in the first period.
Petr Mrazek finished and allowed three goals in relief.
John Moore, Mike Cammallieri, Pavel Zacha and Adam Henrique scored for the Devils (7-0-2). They have not lost at home in regulation this season.
The Red Wings started the overtime on a power play and the game ended with the teams playing 4-on-4 because the clock never stopped during the extra session.
The Devils it at 4l with 5:11 left in regulation when Henrique tipped a point shot by former Red Wing Kyle Quincey into the net with New Jersey having an extra skater with a delayed penalty about to be called.
Mantha had given the Red Wings the lead with a blast from the left dot over the shoulder of Schneider 43 seconds into the third period. It was his second goal in three games.
Nielsen gave the Red Wings took a 2-1 lead after the first period. New Jersey went ahead 3-2 in the second period on a goal by Cammalleri and a power-play tally by Larkin with 1.2 seconds left in the period.
The Devils challenged the goal, saying that Gustav Nyquist was offside. After a review, Larkin’s sixth goal stood.
John Moore gave New Jersey an early 1-0 lead and the Devils looked in good shape after Riley Sheahan was assessed a four-minute minor for high sticking.
Abdelkader stripped the puck from Damon Severson, took a shot and Nielsen put in the rebound with Schneider down in the crease.
Shortly after coming out of the penalty box, Sheahan took a shot between the circled and Nielsen again put in the rebound with a little help from Devils forward Kyle Palmieri, who seemed to nudge the puck over the goal line.
Cammalleri, who has six points in two games back in the lineup, got his goal on a shot that deflected off the skate of Red Wings defenseman Jonathan Ericsson at 4:06 of the second period. Zacha scored less than two minute later on a shot from the left circle.
NOTES: Nielsen has 10 goals in 45 games against the Devils. … Palmieri returned to the Devils’ lineup after missing two games with upper body soreness and played in his 100th game with New Jersey.
Red Wings: Host Montreal on Saturday night.
Devils: At Pittsburgh on Saturday night.
