Recap: Tampa Bay vs. New Jersey

Tampa, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - Mike Cammalleri netted the winning score on a power play in the latter stages of the third period, and the New Jersey Devils edged the Tampa Bay Lightning, 2-1, on Tuesday.

Travis Zajac provided the other score and Cory Schneider added 26 stops for the Devils, who extended their franchise record by winning three in a row away from home to begin a season.

"I thought we played a very good road game," Schneider said. "First few minutes wasn't our best, but that's part of my job to be there and pick the guys up and let them get going and sure enough we did."

Alex Killorn notched the lone offense for the Lightning, who were coming off a 7-1 drubbing of the Canadiens on Monday. Evgeni Nabokov stopped 23 shots in an unsuccessful Tampa debut.

Only 2:20 after the Bolts tied the game, the visitors moved ahead to stay.

With Steven Stamkos in the box for hooking, Martin Havlat controlled the puck in the right circle and whipped a pass atop the crease for Patrik Elias. His shot was stopped by Nabokov, but an unmarked Cammalleri swatted home the rebound for a 2-1 game with 8:41 remaining.

Tampa skated 6-on-4 for most of the final minute in regulation to no avail.

"We had chances as they did. It came down to specials teams in the end," said Tampa Bay head coach Jon Cooper.

Nikita Kucherov's bid to give the Bolts the first goal of the contest with 3 1/2 minutes played didn't make it all the way across the goal line.

Zajac finally ended the scoreless deadlock, when he followed up the rebound of a point drive by Andy Greene and beat Nabokov and a sliding Victor Hedman with a low shot at 7:38 of the second.

Killorn tied the game one second shy of the nine-minute mark of the third, slipping the puck through Schneider's pads from the left wing.
