How about these New Jersey Devils?

After falling behind 3-0 in the first period to the Toronto Maple Leafs, Mike Cammalleri and company responded in a major way.

Cammalleri scored and collected three assists which helped force overtime and eventually a shootout that allowed Jacob Josefson to roof the game-winner to give the Devils the 5-4 win:


Beau Bennett, Travis Zajac, and Yohann Auvitu were the other goal-scorers for New Jersey. Rookie sensation Auston Matthews broke out of a slump in a major way by netting two goals and an assist.

With the win, the Devils snap a three-game losing streak and are still the only team in the NHL who has yet to suffer a regulation home loss.

Next up for New Jersey will be the Detroit Red Wings in Newark on Friday night.
