2008_02_devlogo.jpgThrashers 4, Devils 3 (SO): John Madden put the Devils up a goal with 8:45 remaining, but with 18 seconds to go, Atlanta's Marian Hossa got the equalizer. The teams went 10 rounds in a shootout before the Thrashers emerged on top. Eighteen seconds away from two points, and instead the Devils settle for one. This was the second straight overtime game for the Devils, who also play Saturday.

Martin Brodeur, who has made 17 straight starts, probably summed it up best when he said, "We have to get some rest." If only the NHL, and not the NBA, were on its All-Star break now. If the Devils do get some shuteye, it will have to come in between going through immigration. They play at Ottawa on Saturday night.
