(Newser) – The Devils trailed the Penguins 3-1 entering the third period but two quick goals by Jamie Langenbrunner and David Clarks tied up the score, and Zach Parise netted the game winner just 37 seconds into the extra period to give New Jersey a 4-3 win. New Jersey, Pittsburgh, and Philadelphia are now tied for first in the Atlantic Division, reports the Associated Press.

Martin Brodeur made 31 saves and was credited with an assist on the winning goal. Patrik Elias scored a goal and had two assists for New Jersey; Parise also recorded two assists. Jordan Staal, Petr Sykora and Ryan Malone had Pittsburgh’s three goals. The Penguins are now 3-2-2 since Sidney Crosby went down with an ankle injury.
