Jonathan Audy-Marchessault’s goal 16 seconds into overtime sealed the Devils' 5-4 loss to the Rangers in Friday afternoon’s AHL exhibition game at AmeriHealth Pavilion.

Audy-Marchessault took a shot from just inside the blue line, beating Maxime Clermont inside the right post.

Darcy Zajac forced the extra session with 25.3 seconds left in regulation, jamming a Joe Whitney rebound past 6-8 goaltender Jason Missiaen. Clermont was pulled for an extra attacker with 47 seconds remaining to give the Devils a 5-on-4 advantage.

The Devils led 2-0 after one nd went ahead 3-1 in the second. The Rangers struck for three straight goals, including Ryan Bourque’s tally that broke a 3-3 tie at 8:47 of the third.

That erased a quick start by the home team. J.T. Barnett’s deflection of a Nathan Perkovich shot opened the scoring at 1:26. Then, J.S. Berube beat Rangers starter Scott Stajcer on a partial break at 2:55.

Devils starter Scott Wedgewood couldn’t stop Bourque’s 5-on-3 one-timer from the side of the net early in the second. That got the Rangers on the board, 2-1, at 3:54. Both teams switched goalies midway through the frame, and Perkovich quickly capitalized. From the left circle, he snapped a wrister over Missiaen's glove into the top right corner of the net for a 3-1 lead at 10:37.

J.T. Miller started the Rangers’ comeback with a shot off Clermont’s catching glove at 11:56. Christian Thomas converted on a shorthanded chance in front of Clermont to tie the contest, 3-3, with 1:17 left in the second.
