NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Rookie Seth Jarvis scored with 3:21 left in the overtime and the Carolina Hurricanes rallied from a late two-goal deficit to beat the New Jersey Devils 3-2 on Saturday for their third straight win.

Carolina had tied the game at 2-all on third-period goals by Brady Skjei and Nino Niederreiter in the final five minutes.

Rookie Pyotr Kochetkov made 17 saves for Carolina in winning his NHL debut.

Yegor Sharangovich and Nico Hischier had staked the Devils to a 2-0 lead. Jon Gillies, who was minutes away from his first NHL shutout, made 26 saves for New Jersey in his first start in a month.

Jarvis won the game with a shot from the right circle after being set up by Tony DeAngelo.

Skjei cut the margin to 2-1 on a shot that deflected past Gillies off the skate of Devils' defenseman Kevin Bahl at 15:24. Niederreiter lifted a rebound over the journeyman goaltender with 1:56 left in regulation.

Sharangovich opened the scoring with 4:17 left in the second period, tipping a shot by Jesper Boqvist past Kochetkov. It snapped a 0-for-30 streak on the Devils’ power play that covered the last 11-plus games.

Hischier seemed to give the Devils breathing room when he snapped a shot from the left circle past Kochetkov at 8:30 of the third period.

The 22-year-old Kochetkov has had a odd season. He played in 23 KHL games. When his team didn't make the playoffs, the 2019 second-round draft pick went to the AHL and posted an 13-1-1 record with Chicago. He was called up after Frederik Anderson was hurt recently and got to play after backing up Antti Raanta for two games.
