Paul Coffey Salutes Fans After Scoring Game Winner

In what could be described as the upset of the century, the New Jersey Devils finally got off the mark wins-wise, scoring a shocking 7-6 OT victory over the heavily-favored New York Rangers. A pair of hat tricks by Doug Gilmour and Brendan Shanahan, along with Paul Coffey's game winner early in OT led the way for coach Tom Delgado to get his first league win. The Devils win despite a 4-goal game from "Super Mario" Mario Lemieux. Darcy Wakaluk turned in a gutsy performance en route to his first win of the season, making 11 saves, including several big saves late in the 3rd when it seemed that the Devils would give up the lead. When the game winning goal was scored, Delgado was immediately doused with Gatorade, and was found still on the bench about an hour later, frozen.
