The New Jersey Devils finally won in a shootout Thursday night snapping an 0-for-18 in slump in the breakaway competition.

Jacob Josefson scored the shootout winner as the Devils upended the Winnipeg Jets 2-1 - their first shootout win since March 10, 2013, which also came against the Jets.

Michael Ryder scored in regulation for the Devils while Blake Wheeler had the lone Jets goal.

Cory Schneider made 24 saves for the win and Ondrej Pavelec stopped 26 shots in the loss.

Winnipeg center Evander Kane made his return to the lineup after suffering a knee injury in the season opener Oct. 9.

Kane had three shots on goal, a hit and two penalty minutes in 17:07 of time on ice.
