Meier scores in OT to lift Devils over Blue Jackets
“Yeah. I just came off the bench fresh, with some speed," Hughes said. "I had the crossover behind the net and from there I just let my skating do the work. It’s a good effort for our team, got to clean some things up, but a big win for us.”
On Saturday at home, the Devils rallied to beat Detroit 3-2. They've won an NHL-leading 12 come-from-behind games.
“I'm getting tired of the comeback stuff,” Devils coach Lindy Ruff said. “Some guys were sharp, some guys weren't sharp. I thought some of our top guys weren't sharp and it affected our game.”
“The effort was pretty solid for the most part,” Columbus defenseman Damon Severson said. “We had a couple of shots at it. It was one of those games where we probably deserved better.”
Blue Jackets: Host Toronto on Friday night.
Devils: At Ottawa on Friday night.
