Cammalleri has 4 points in return, Devils edge Leafs in SO
NEWARK, N.J. (AP) Mike Cammalleri had four points in his return to the lineup and Jacob Josefson scored in the shootout as the New Jersey Devils beat the Toronto Maple Leafs 5-4 on Wednesday night.
Cory Schneider stopped all three Toronto attempts in the tiebreaker, and the Devils overcame an early 3-0 deficit to snap a three-game losing streak, their longest of the season.
Cammalleri had a goal and three assists after missing six games. He spent more than a week with his family after his 5-year-old daughter was hospitalized with pneumonia.
Travis Zajac, Beau Bennett and Yohann Auvitu also scored for New Jersey.
Top draft pick Auston Matthews had two goals and set up another by Nazem Kadri in Toronto's big first period. Matt Martin also scored, and Jhonas Enroth made 26 saves.
