The team posted 30-plus shots for the first time in 10 games, but it came down to Scott Gomez, who netted the deciding goal in the shootout.
?We had 20 (scoring) chances,? said Devils GM and interim coach Lou Lamoriello. ?The first thing you look at is chances to score and chances against. We had plenty of opportunities and that's all you can ask for. The win, I was pleased with the way we did a lot of things tonight: the penalty kill and the power play had a lot of good looks and 5-on-5 we were creating chances. We just have to put them in the net.?
