Game 69: Devs Blow Lead, Refs Give Thrashers 6-5 OT Win

    The New Jersey Devils lost 6-5 in overtime to the Thrashers in Atlanta on Thursday, March 23, 2006.

    Patrik Elias beat Thrashers netminder Kari Lehtonen at 15:06 of the first period on a power-play to give the Devils a 1-0 lead.   Colin White and Paul Martin assisted on Elias' eighth goal of the season.

    The first period ended with the Devils leading Atlanta, 1-0.   The Devils outshot the Thrashers, 11-8 in the period.

    Jamie Langenbrunner gave the Devils a 2-0 lead with a power-play goal at 10:21 of the second period.   Langenbrunner's 16th goal of the season was assisted by Sergei Brylin and Patrik Elias.

    Marian Hossa put the Thrashers on the board with a power-play goal that beat Martin Brodeur at 12:34.

    Brad Lukowich scored his first goal as a Devil at 16:34 to increase the Devils lead.   Scott Gomez assisted on Lukowich's second goal of the season.

    The Devils outshot the Thrashers 16-7 in the second period, which ended with the Devils leading, 3-1.

    Zach Parise made it a 4-1 Devils lead with a great goal at 2:41 of the third period.   Parise's ninth goal of the season was assisted by Scott Gomez and Martin Brodeur.

    Ex-Devil Bobby Holik cut the Devils lead to 2 goals with a power-play goal at 5:55.   Ilya Kovalchuk made it a 1 goal game with a goal scored 1 second after a Thrashers power-play had ended.

    Vyacheslav Kozlov evened the score at 17:59 when the referee swallowed his whistle.   Kozlov repeatedly whacked at Brodeur while he had the puck covered, until it came loose.

    Patrik Elias was assessed an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for arguing about the goal and Patrik Stefan scored 1:06 later to give the Thrashers their first lead of the game.

    Brian Gionta tied the game with 1:02 remaining in regulation time.   Scott Gomez and Colin White assisted on Gionta's 38th goal of the season.

    Regulation time ended with the score tied, 5-5.

    Scott Gomez was injured - clearly hit with a high-stick just under 1 minute into the overtime period. While he was down on the ice, Atlanta managed to take the puck the length of the ice for Peter Bondra to beat Brodeur at 1:03.
