With two minutes and change remaining in the third period, fans at the Prudential Center were feeling pretty good as their New Jersey Devils held a 2-1 lead against the visiting Chicago Blackhawks.

By the time the game was over, frustration was the overwhelming sentiment.

Marian Hossa tied the game on the power-play with just 2:11 remaining in regulation and then ex-Ranger Artem Anisimov won it at the 1:15 mark of overtime for Chicago.

P.A. Parenteau and John Moore were the goal-scorers for New Jersey. Parenteau tallied his third of the season on the power-play in the first while Moore broke a 1-1 tie early in the third.


Keith Kinkaid received the start and stopped 26 of the 29 shots he faced.

New Jersey will next welcome in the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday night.
