NEWARK, N.J. — Ilya Kovalchuk scored on a power play with 24.9 seconds left in overtime and the New Jersey Devils continued their remarkable playoff push with a 2-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Friday night.
The goal was the second straight game for the $100 million man, his sixth in the last 12 games and his ninth of the season.
More importantly, it gave New Jersey its 19th win in 23 games (19-2-2) and handed the injury ravaged Penguins their eighth loss in 10 games (2-5-3).
Travis Zajac scored for the Devils, while Tyler Kennedy tallied for Pittsburgh, which continues to play without Sidney Crosby (concussion).
