The New Jersey Devils reached the Stanley Cup ice hockey finals by eliminating cross-river rival New York Rangers with a 3-2 sudden-death home victory, as rookie centre Adam Henrique produced more overtime magic.

Henrique, whose overtime goal clinched New Jersey's seven-game playoff series against the Florida Panthers, did it again when he scored 63 seconds into the extra time to set off a wild celebration in the packed Prudential Center.
