Newark, NJ (SportsNetwork.com) - Patrik Elias registered the lone goal of the shootout as New Jersey claimed a 3-2 decision over Tampa Bay at Prudential Center. Elias and Adam Henrique picked up first-period tallies for the Devils, who finally put an end to a five-game losing streak. Keith Kinkaid finished with 26 saves in regulation and three more in the games final segment to earn his first NHL victory. Its a huge win. We needed it. It was a gutsy win. There probably werent too many people picking us to win this game tonight, said Devils head coach Peter DeBoer. Steven Stamkos and Nikita Kucherov supplied offense for the Lightning, who have dropped five of their last seven. Evgeni Nabokov made 16 stops but allowed his team to earn a point. Elias put his team ahead as the opening shooter in the third and final round, pulling Nabokov out of position before sliding a shot inside the right post. Kinkaid cemented the outcome and picked up his milestone by turning away a Jonathan Drouin chance. We just stayed with it. I felt good and the fans gave great energy, said Kinkaid. Late in the games opening power play, the Devils went up 1-0 on a Henrique marker just over three minutes into the contest. It was 2-0 with 4:43 left before the first intermission when Elias fooled Nabokov with a spin-o-rama move in the right circle and beat him to the far post. Stamkos popped home a rebound from the right side with 5:05 to play in the second and the Bolts closed within a goal. Devils forward Michael Ryder was given a double minor for high sticking with 7:42 remaining in regulation, but the Lightning failed to make much headway on the extended advantage. Brett Connolly was turned away by Kinkaids blocker as the clock ticked down to four minutes left -- the visitors best chance on the entire power play. Nabokov was pulled for the final 90 seconds and it paid off when Kucherov scored on a backhander as 40.1 seconds remained. We earned it, Bolts forward Ryan Callahan said of their point for playing beyond regulation. Shootouts are a crapshoot, but theyre very important points.

"Its an indication theyre just getting a better and better understanding of the ball movement and how we want to play," Budenholzer said. "Passing and hitting the open guy just becomes something thats expected."

"Im glad it paid off," Williams said. "It was one of the nights we had everything clicking." The Hawks never trailed and pushed their lead to double digits for good in the opening period. They kept up the pressure, outscoring Utah in every period and making 52.3 per cent of their shots (45 of 86) from the field. Budenholzer said the most encouraging sign was "not so much putting them away, but just continuing to play the way we play, just doing the things we did to establish a lead. Tonight was a step forward in that direction." Jeff Teague had nine points and eight assists. Horford was resting when the Hawks took an 85-58 lead into the final period. "Our energy was the difference," Horford said. The Jazz agreed.dddddddddddd "Its a mental thing," said Utahs Derrick Favours. "Weve just got to come out with the energy and the attitude like they had against us tonight." It was a letdown for Utah coach Tyrone Corbin following a win at Orlando on Wednesday night. "I thought we didnt come out with the sense of urgency wed been seeing," Corbin said. "I thought wed turned the corner, I felt like, the way we played in Orlando the other night. I was looking for that effort. We just didnt have it from the beginning tonight." Enes Kanter had 13 points and 13 rebounds for Utah (7-22). Alec Burks also had 13 points. Trey Burke, who scored a career-high 30 points against Orlando, made only 1 of 8 shots for two points. Atlantas Paul Millsap had 14 points and 10 rebounds against his former Utah teammates.

Jeremy Evans, the 2012 slam-dunk competition champion, missed a dunk and then landed hard on his back with 7:53 remaining, giving the Jazz another scare.
