Ilva Kovalchuk and Patrik Elias scored shootout goals and the New Jersey Devils beat the red-hot Anaheim Ducks 3-2 on Friday night. Martin Brodeur made 36 saves and preserved the shootout win with a pad save on Ryan Getzlaf as the Devils won for the seventh time in nine games and handed the Ducks only their seventh loss (14-3-4) since the start of the year. Getzlaf appeared to score 1:10 into overtime, but the goal was waved off after a review showed he kicked the puck into the net. Anaheim's Sheldon Brookbank forced the overtime, scoring with 2:13 to play in regulation. It was his first goal since March 31, 2009, a span of 167 games. Corey Perry, who hit a goalpost in the shootout, continued his recent scoring spree for the Ducks, collecting his sixth goal in the last four games. Adam Henrique and Alexei Ponikarovsky scored in regulation for the Devils, 10-3 in shootouts.
