Toronto, ON - The New Jersey Devils could not pull out late magic like they did the night before and ended up losing the game in a shootout to the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Ryane Clowe scored his first as a Devil on a breakaway just 28-seconds after van Riemsdyk scored the go ahead goal at 5:56 in the second.
Adam Henrique is heating up as of late as he put in his 11th goal on a power play chance 1:39 into the second period. He received a pass from Clowe in the right circle and he fired it past Jonathan Bernier‘s blocker. It was his fifth goal in just eight games.
The Leafs scored first with Tyler Bozak’s seventh of the year on a rebound in the slot.
The Devils got lucky when the Leafs had a goal waived off because of goaltender interference. It was questionable because van Riemsdyke did not seem to make much contact with Schneider. But when the goaltender hit the ice and the goal was scored it was convincing enough to be waived off.
The Devils and Schneider failed to win three games straight and now have a tough team in the Montreal Canadiens to play next on Tuesday night.
