NEWARK, N.J. — Artem Anisimov scored on a rebound at 1:15 of overtime and the Blackhawks rallied to beat New Jersey 3-2 on Friday night, handing the Devils their first home loss.

Marian Hossa tied the score at 2 with a power-play goal with 2:11 left in regulation after the Blackhawks pulled goaltender Corey Crawford for a sixth skater.

Artemi Panarin, who took the shot on Anisimov's winner, also scored for Chicago. Crawford was outstanding in making 30 saves.

PA Parenteau and John Moore scored for New Jersey, which was 3-0 at home. Keith Kinkaid made 26 saves in his first start of the season.

The Devils face the Lightning at home tonight to finish a four-game homestand.

"We have a short turnaround," Devils defenseman Andy Greene said. "We'll be back at the rink (today) and be ready to go.

Chicago had all three shots in the overtime. Panarin took a shot from the right circle. Kinkaid made the save, but the puck went right to Anisimov for his fifth goal of the season.

Moore had given the Devils the lead early in the third period with a slam dunk in front. Taylor Hall sent a pass toward the net, and the puck hit off the skate of Devils forward Kyle Palmieri and went right to wide-open Moore.

Game highlights: Jeff Skinner had two goals and an assist, and the Hurricanes beat the Rangers 3-2 in their home opener. Skinner's 16th career three-point night came in his debut wearing the "A" as an alternate captain.
