TORONTO, Dec. 6 (UPI) -- David Clarkson netted his second goal of the game 2:40 into overtime Tuesday and the New Jersey Devils held off Toronto for a 3-2 victory.

Toronto's Carl Gunnarsson fanned on a scoring chance and Dainius Zubrus picked up the puck, rushing into the Maple Leafs' end. He stopped along the right half-boards and fired a pass to Clarkson alone in the slot.

The Devils winger one-timed a blistering shot between the pads of James Reimer and New Jersey snapped a four-game losing streak.

Clarkson also scored on a first-period power play, as did Ilya Kovalchuk for the Devils.

Martin Brodeur, the NHL's career leader in wins, broke a personal three-game skid, turning aside 29-of-31 shots.

Leading All-Star Game vote-getter Phil Kessel scored his 17th goal and Matt Frattin also scored for the Maple Leafs.

Reimer finished with 23 saves.
