Jordan Eberle and David Perron scored in the shootout for the Edmonton Oilers, who erased a three-goal deficit in the third period against goalie Martin Brodeur and beat the New Jersey Devils 5-4 on Monday night.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Andrew Ference, Perron, and Taylor Hall all scored their first of the season in a 7:47 span to make it 4-3. But despite getting a power play with 2:51 left in regulation, the Oilers (1-2) couldn't hold on for a regulation win.

While the Devils were still a man down, New Jersey pulled Brodeur for an extra skater, and Patrik Elias netted the tying short-handed goal with 54 seconds remaining.

Jaromir Jagr scored his first goal for the Devils (0-1-2), and Damien Brunner added his third of the young season to give New Jersey a two-goal lead in the first. Michael Ryder made it 3-0 in the second.
