Newark, NJ (Sports Network) - Ilya Kovalchuk's goal with 43 seconds left in overtime lifted the New Jersey Devils to a 3-2 win over the Washington Capitals at Prudential Center.

Kovalchuk received a pass from Marek Zidlicky on the end line and beat Capitals goaltender, Michael Neuvirth, with a wrister for the win.

Zidlicky had two assists while Patrik Elias and Stephen Gionta each added a goal for the Devils, who improve to 3-0 on the lockout-shortened season.

Martin Brodeur stopped 26 of the 28 shots he faced in the victory.

Mike Ribeiro and Mike Green each scored one goal for Washington (0-3-1), which has gone winless in its first four games.
