OTTAWA – Zach Parise and Brendan Shanahan scored in the shootout to give the New Jersey Devils a 3-2 win over the Ottawa Senators on Thursday night.

New Jersey had already clinched first place in the Atlantic Division and third place overall in the Eastern Conference by getting a point for going into overtime.

Dany Heatley scored his 39th goal to draw Ottawa even at 2 with a minute left in the third period. The Senators’ All-Star left wing scored his fourth in three games to tie it when he drove a shot past Martin Brodeur from the slot to cap a wild scramble around the Devils’ goal.

New Jersey claimed its third division title in four seasons.
