Andy Greene isn’t known for his scoring, but this OT penalty shot goal was pretty nice

A penalty shot in overtime. Game on the line. Andy Greene standing at center ice with a chance to win it.

No problem, apparently.

The 34-year-old Greene has scored 37 goals in 654 career games in the NHL, but never more than eight goals in a single season. That was in 2013-14. But the veteran defenseman made no mistake facing Anders Nilsson on Friday, deking to his forehand and then sliding the puck through the legs of the Buffalo Sabres goalie to give the New Jersey Devils a 2-1 win.

The Devils, without forward Mike Cammalleri tonight due to personal reasons, have now won three in a row to move into a Wild Card position.
