In the second period, New Jersey jumped out to a 4–1 lead, and the top team looked to be heading for a sure win against the Vancouver Canucks.
But then the away team found their way back into the game, and the Canucks scored two reduction goals before the third period.
Once there, they also managed to score the equaliser, a goal which Oliver Ekman-Larsson was behind.
But New Jersey would have reason to cheer after all.
In extra time, the decision came, and that through Swedish star Jesper Bratt.
The 24-year-old pushed in 5-4 on the power play, and with that he has now scored 20 goals this season.
In addition, he has made 31 assists (in 51 games played).
- It was not our best match.
But at the same time, we showed strong team morale when we came back and managed to win the game, says Bratt according to NHL.com.
Another Swede who delivered was Fabian Zetterlund.
He assisted on two of New Jersey's goals.
