Devils fall to Thrashers
Devils slip to 3-3-0 and see their winning streak halted at three games. They remain winless on home ice, but will try to change that Saturday vs. Carolina.

Chris Thorburn's shorthanded goal puts Atlanta back ahead by two goals, 4-2, with 3:11 remaining in 3rd.

ZACH PARISE'S SECOND OF SEASON CUTS THE DEFICIT TO 3-2 WITH 6:50 LEFT IN REGULATION.


Devils call timeout with 10:15 remaining and an eight-second 5-on-3 PP coming up. After that, it'll be 1:52 of a 5-on-4.

Atlanta leads, 3-1: Peverley's second PPG of the night has the Thrashers ahead by two. Peverley got a pass back from Nik Antropov at the left dot, and slipped his fourth of the season under Brodeur at 5:55 of the third period.

Atlanta takes 2-1 lead: Evander Kane's second of the season has put the Thrashers ahead 1:36 into the third. Kane chipped the puck around Murphy at the left boards in neutral and roofed the puck over Brodeur's glove on a 2-on-1 with Colby Armstrong vs. Johnny Oduya. Unassisted tally.

Ready for the start of the third period...

**End of second period
. The Devils took a 1-0 lead on Travis Zajac's goal at 8:07 of the period, and Rich Peverley's power-play tally tied the contest at 1 with 5:03 left in the frame.

After staying out of the box in the first, the Devils allowed two Thrashers' power plays in the second. Peverley's goal came with the Devils down a man for too many men. New Jersey had two power plays in the second, including a rare 4-on-3 in regulation for 13 seconds. Through 40 minutes, the Devils are 0-for-3 with the man advantage and have two PP shots.



Atlanta ties it up, 1-1: Rich Peverley notches a PPG, burying Maxim Afinogenov's rebound at 14:57 of the second.

Andrew Peters and Eric Boulton dropped the gloves and battled to a draw at 8:12 of the second.

DEVILS LEAD, 1-0: TRAVIS ZAJAC'S FOURTH OF THE SEASON GIVES THE DEVILS A 1-0 LEAD AT 8:07 OF THE SECOND. LANGENBRUNNER SPRINGS ZAJAC ON A BREAKAWAY FROM THE BLUELINE, AND NO. 19 BURIES NEW JERSEY'S FIRST GOAL OF THE NIGHT PAST ONDREJ PAVELEC.


Devils more than doubling up Atlanta in shots, 17-8, with 12:26 remaining in the second.

Johnny Oduya makes nice play to break up Slava Kozov's break from the hashmarks with 14:02 left in the second. Kozlov never got a shot on goal.

Ready for the second period...
