Lan­gen­brun­ner Lifts N.J. With Goal in 2nd Over­time

The Washington Post Sunday - - Sports -

EAST RUTHER­FORD, N.J., April 28 — Jamie Lan­gen­brun­ner scored on a break­away 1 minute 55 sec­onds into the sec­ond over­time to lift New Jer­sey to a 3-2 vic­tory over the Ottawa Sen­a­tors on Satur­day night, giv­ing the Devils a home split of the first two games in the East­ern Con­fer­ence semi­fi­nals.

Lan­gen­brun­ner picked up a loose puck in the neu­tral zone, fought off a hook from trail­ing de­fense­man Joe Corvo and shoved the puck past sprawled goalie Ray Emery.

New Jer­sey seemed set to win it in reg­u­la­tion, af­ter first-pe­riod goals be­fore Ottawa struck twice.
