NEWARK, N.J. -- Brent Seabrook tied the game with 11:26 remaining in regulation, but Travis Zajac had the shootout winner as the Devils took a 2-1 victory over the Blackhawks on Tuesday night.
Andrew Shaw was the Blackhawks' fifth-round shootout selection, and the rookie hit the post on his attempt.
Petr Sykora gave the Devils an early 1-0 lead with his power-play goal, one on which the Devils capitalized on a bad Blackhawks line change. Martin Brodeur stopped 37 of 38 while Corey Crawford stopped 21 of 22 shots.
Is there anyone who wouldn't want to play with Patrick Kane?
Jeremy Roenick joined In The Loop on Wednesday to discuss which current Blackhawks he would like to play with, and naturally, the reigning MVP topped his list.
"He would be my No. 1 choice," Roenick said. "There's no question about it."
But Roenick said there are two more Blackhawks he would like to lace them up with.
"I wouldn't mind playing with (Artemi) Panarin also," he said. "I would love to play with Jonathan Toews. I think I'd play well with all three of them."
Roenick also gave high praise to coach Joel Quenneville, saying he is one of the best coaches in all of sports. Roenick even compared Quenneville to "the Bill Belichick of hockey."
