UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) - Scott Gomez scored with 1:20 left in overtime to lift the New Jersey Devils to a 2-1 win over the New York Islanders on Saturday night.

Patrik Elias took the puck in the Islanders zone, drew a defenceman down, and passed up to Gomez, who slid the puck in the short side past Rick DiPietro for his eighth goal.

Miroslav Satan tied the score with 0.7 seconds left on a power play tip-in off Martin Brodeur while the Islanders were on their second power play. It was Satan's 13th goal this season, and just his third in his last 13 games.

John Madden also scored for the Devils. Brodeur finished with 24 saves and was less than one second away from back-to-back shutouts at the Nassau Coliseum.

DiPietro made 28 saves as the Islanders lost their third straight at home. His toughest chances were back-to-back shots from Brian Gionta and Scott Gomez in the scoreless first period.
