The Devils looked as resilient as ever in their first win of the new season.

Thursday in Tampa Bay, Travis Zajac saved the Devils from an 0-3-0 record by scoring the tying goal with one second left in regulation. Martin Brodeur registered 41 saves, and Zach Parise and Jamie Langenbrunner contributed shootout tallies to finish off New Jersey's 4-3 victory.

The Devils improved to 1-2-0 heading into Saturday's battle at Florida. But late flourishes are nothing new for this group, which made clutch comebacks a hallmark of their 2008-09 run to the Atlantic Division title.

Oct. 11, 2008 / 2-1 OT Win @ PIT:
Patrik Elias scored with 2:29 left in regulation to tie the game at 1 before Parise won it with 38 seconds left in overtime. The contest marked just the third time in team history that the Devils won a game 2-1 in overtime after trailing 1-0 with less than five minutes to go.

Dec. 4, 2008 / 3-2 OT Win @ PHI:
Elias torched the Flyers by notching his ninth and 10th goals of the season in dramatic fashion. After Philly took a 2-1 lead with 4:28 remaining, Elias tied it with 1:30 left. He finished it in the extra session, netting the winner at 2:46 of OT.

Jan. 4, 2009 / 4-3 OT Win vs. OTT: Langenbrunner has scored huge goals throughout his Devils career and last year was no exception. He jumpstarted his second half with his seventh of the season (PP) to tie Ottawa with 3:40 to go in the third. Brian Rolston (PP) ended it at 1:43 of overtime.

Jan. 29, 2009 / 4-3 OT Win @ BOS: The Bruins scored three straight goals to erase a 2-0 Devils lead, but Elias' 22nd tied it at 3 with 1:45 left in regulation. Langenbrunner's 12th sealed it at 1:11 of overtime.

Jan. 30, 2009 / 4-3 OT Win vs. PIT: The Devils' captain came up big for a second straight night. One game after rallying against Boston, the Devils bounced back from a 3-1 third-period deficit against the Penguins. Langenbrunner tied it at 3 with 31 seconds remaining in the third, then scored the winner with one minute left in extra time.

Feb. 15, 2009 / 6-5 Win vs. SJ:
A back-and-forth battle royale against the Sharks was tied five times and featured two lead changes. David Clarkson's PPG put the Devils on top for good, breaking a 5-5 stalemate with 3:32 left in the third period.

April 11, 2009 / 3-2 Win vs. CAR:
Dainius Zubrus scored his 15th of the year with 4:26 left in regulation to break a 2-2 tie and lift New Jersey to a 3-2 triumph in their regular-season finale.
