Lightning up next: Devils fall to Panthers in OT

SUNRISE — The Panthers are off to a good start on improving their play in overtime.

Vincent Trocheck scored two goals, including the winner in overtime, to lift the Panthers to a 4-3 victory over the Devils on Thursday.

The Panthers won only one of seven overtime games last season but have beaten the Devils in the extra period twice this season.

"It was a great win for us. I didn't think we played a great game, but we found a way," Panthers coach Gerard Gallant said.

Pavel Zacha, PA Parenteau and Travis Zajac scored for the Devils, and Cory Schneider stopped 25 shots.

Devils wing Taylor Hall had a point-blank shot on a breakaway 37 seconds into overtime, but Florida goalie James Reimer stopped the shot.

"We had some chances. I had a breakaway, the puck wouldn't stop rolling. I'd love to have that one back," Hall said.

Zacha tied the score at 3 with 3:55 left in the third period. Zacha's shot from the slot beat Reimer for his first NHL goal.

"It was a good feeling, at the moment, when it was 3-3," Zacha said. "I'd feel much better if we won the game."

The Devils were behind 2-0 and 3-1 in regulation.

"I liked the fact that we were able to find a way to be able to come back and get a point, being down two," coach John Hynes said. "There's lots of positives to be able to take out of that."

Notes: The Panthers' Jaromir Jagr played in his 1,640th NHL game, passing former Lightning captain Dave Andreychuk and moving into sixth all time on the league list. Next up: No. 5 Chris Chelios (1,651) and No. 4 Mark Recchi (1,652). The earliest Jagr could pass Gordie Howe (1,767) for the NHL record would be in the second half of the 2017-18 season. … This was the Devils' first game since a 3-1 victory against the Lightning last Saturday.
