VIDEO: Travis Zajac's OT Winner Over Panthers

The New Jersey Devils staved off an early exit from the 2012 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs with a 3-2 overtime win in Game 6 against the Florida Panthers. Travis Zajac became the game's hero at the 5:39 mark in OT, when he took a pretty pass from Ilya Kovalchuk just past the outstretched stick of a defender and put the puck through the legs of Scott Clemmensen.

The goal was a certified beaut, and you can check it out after the jump:

The goal was set up by a nice play by Zach Parise to get the puck past Mike Weaver and on the stick of Kovalchuk in the neutral zone. However, top star honors went to Zajac, who also picked up an assist on Kovalchuk's second period powerplay goal. Click here for a full Game 6 recap.
