Game 19: Devils Robbed by Refs and Wings, Lose 3-2 in OT

    The New Jersey Devils were robbed in Detroit on Wednesday, November 27, 2002.   Kris Draper got the 3-2 game winner in overtime after a John Madden goal was disallowed.

    Red Wings rookie, Dmitri Bykov, got his first career NHL goal at 8:59.   He took the puck just after a faceoff and blasted the puck past Martin Brodeur.

    Turner Stevenson tied the game at 9:52 of the first period with his 1st goal of the season.   Scott Stevens and Joe Nieuwendyk assisted on the goal.

    The first period ended with the game tied, 1-1.   The Devils outshot the Red Wings 11-6 in the period.

    Jeff Friesen gave the Devils a 2-1 lead at 1:58 of the second period on the power-play.   Brian Rafalski and Turner Stevenson assisted on Friesen's 5th goal of the season.

    Brett Hull tied the game, 2-2 at 13:43 on a 4 on 3 power-play.

    The second period ended with the game tied, 2-2.   The Devils outshot the Red Wings 12-9 in the period.

    There was no scoring in the third period, regulation time ended with the game tied, 3-3.   The Red Wings outshot the Devils, 9-4 in the third.

    John Madden won the game for the Devils in overtime, but the off-ice officials blew the call, taking away his goal.   They called the redirection of the puck with his skate a distinct kicking motion - which it was clearly not.

    Kris Draper beat Martin Brodeur at 1:55 of the overtime period, to steal the win.

    Colin White took three minor penalties in the game.

    The game against Detroit was the first game of four on a 6 day road trip.   The Devils will also travel to Nashville, St. Louis, and Philadelphia before returning home to face the Vancouver Canucks on Wednesday, December 4, 2002.

    The Devils lead the lifetime series, 22-16-8-1, but are now 10-11-2-1 in Detroit.

    Jay Pandolfo returned to the lineup after missing seven games with a groin injury.   Tommy Albelin and Jamie Langenbrunner were scratches.
