OTTAWA, Ontario — Jaromir Jagr scored a power-play goal 3:39 into overtime as the New Jersey Devils beat the Ottawa Senators 3-2 on an emotional Oct. 25 in Canada’s capital.
It was the Senators’ first game since the shooting death of Cpl. Nathan Cirillo at the National War Memorial on Oct. 22. A touching tribute took place prior to puck drop as players and fans united to commemorate the loss of Cirillo and Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent, who was killed in a hit-and-run attack Monday near Montreal.
Marek Zidlicky and Damon Severson also scored for the Devils, who snapped a four-game winless streak. Cory Schneider had 33 saves.
Alex Chiasson and Bobby Ryan scored for the Senators, who had won four in a row. Robin Lehner made 26 stops in front of a sellout crowd of 19,266.
Ryan’s power-play goal midway through the third tied it at 2-2, but Jagr’s second goal of the season sent New Jersey home with the victory.
