Martin Brodeur started his 16th consecutive opener for the Devils, but he also gave up a goal in overtime as the Devils settled for one point in a 4-3 loss at home to Dallas. After Travis Zajac and Zach Parise scored, the Devils had a 2-0 lead just seven minutes, 13 seconds in. But they blew that advantage as well as the 3-2 edge they held after Jason Arnott scored on the power play with 9:38 remaining in the third. The Devils visit Washington on Saturday.
