NEWARK, N.J. (AP) Kyle Palmieri scored two goals for the third straight game and the New Jersey Devils rallied from their first deficits of the season to beat the San Jose Sharks 3-2 on Sunday.
Jean-Sebastien Dea capped the two-goal, third-period outburst with the game winner at 3:25 and Keith Kinkaid made 37 saves as the Devils started the season with three straight wins for the second straight year.
Palmieri, who had 24 goals last season, scored on a rebound in the crease 37 seconds into the third period to tie the game.
After Kinkaid made a save in close minutes later, Dea stuffed a loose puck into the net after Jones let a shot by former Sharks defenseman Mirco Mueller slip between his pads.
