Winless through their first four games of this season, the New Jersey Devils used a little three-on-three overtime magic to best the New York Rangers 2-1 for their first victory of 2015-16 on Sunday afternoon.

With two minutes to go in OT, Rangers center Derek Stepan first rang a high-slot wrist shot off the post. On the transition, Devils defenseman Andy Greene fed left winger Adam Henrique with a stretch pass, then Henrique entered the offensive zone, passed cross-ice to right winger Lee Stempniak, who one-timed the winning goal past a helpless New York goaltender Henrik Lundqvist. Watch it all unfold below.

The wild finish capped off an impressive overtime for the Devils' Greene, who also prevented a Rangers goal in the opening seconds of OT with some impressive stick work in the crease. Who says you can't play 'D' in three-on-three?
