Kyle Palmieri scored on the power play with 1:27 left in overtime and the New Jersey Devils endured a rally by the Vancouver Canucks for a 4-3 victory on Sunday night.
The Canucks made it 3-3 with consecutive goals by Alexander Edler and Sven Baertschi in the second period, with Baertschi tying it with 5:54 left.
Keith Kinkaid made 28 saves, and Adam Henrique, Mike Cammalleri and Sergey Kalinin also scored for New Jersey. The Devils have won four of their past five games and eight of 10 since a 0-3-1 start.
Ryan Miller made 24 saves, Chris Higgins also scored and Vancouver lost its third straight.
Higgins scored 2:20 into the game, but then Henrique and Cammalleri got goals later in the first and Kalinin made it 3-1 midway through the second.
Henrique scored his team-leading seventh of the season with a short-handed goal 5:18 in. The tally ended a sequence which began with Travis Zajac forcing a neutral-zone turnover before carrying the puck into the offensive zone. Zajac skated down the right wing, opening a lane down the middle for Henrique. From there, he took a pass from Zajac and beat Miller with a deke.
Cammalleri snapped the tie with 3:28 left on a backhander from the slot.
Jake Virtanen appeared to tie it for Vancouver moments later, but Devils coach John Hynes challenged the call and a video review showed Alexandre Burrows in the crease, causing the on-ice call to be overruled.
Kalinin got his first NHL goal at 10:31 of the second period. The Devils' rookie held off Radim Vrbata as the two curled around the net before whipping a shot from the right circle.
Edler and Baertschi scored in a span of 2:07. The goals were sandwiched around fights pitting Derek Dorsett vs. Jordin Tootoo and Virtanen vs. Bobby Farnham.
New Jersey lost defenceman Adam Larsson for the game after he was assessed a 5-minute major for interference and a game misconduct for a hit on Jared McCann midway through the third period.
