The New Jersey Devils’ six game road winless streak came to an end with a comeback victory Saturday http://www.devilsteamgear.com/kyle-palmieri-jersey-c-17.html, and just like half of their games this season, it was decided after 60 minutes of play.

The Devils trailed the Predators 4 1 after two periods but rallied for a 5 4 overtime win Saturday afternoon in Nashville. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, it was the first time in club history the Devils won a road game in which they trailed by three goals in the third period.

The last time New Jersey rallied to win a home game they trailed by at least three goals was on Oct. 12, 2006, at the Meadowlands, a 7 6 shootout victory against the Maple Leafs after Toronto led 6 3 heading into the third period.
