• Devils 2 Sabres 1 (Shootout): The Devils won their third-straight game by continuing their stifling defense and throwing a lot of shots on goal. It took awhile, but Mike Mottau scored with seven minutes left in the third to tie the game and Zach Parise scored the only goal of the shootout for the win. New Jersey’s win extends their Atlantic Division lead over the idle Penguins and Rangers.
  • Nets 109 Washington 106: The Nets had lost 11 games at the Izod Center so maybe a win in their last home game of 2007 is a good sign heading into 2008. Jason Kidd hit two big three-pointers in the final minutes to break a tie as part of his 20-point night. Richard Jefferson had 26 while Vince Carter had 24 for New Jersey.
