Eric Gelinas' power play goal gives Devils 4-3 overtime win over Rangers

It may very well be the moment Devils rookie defenseman Eric Gelinas went from being an impressive young prospect to a dynamic NHL star. That’s what an overtime goal against the Rangers can do. “The way he plays, he might be a superstar in this league if he keeps working,” winger Jaromir Jagr said.
