TORONTO, March 3 (UPI) -- Johnny Oduya scored the winning goal with 11.4 seconds remaining in overtime Tuesday to give the New Jersey Devils a 3-2 win over Toronto.

Brian Gionta led a 2-on-1 break and took the slap shot from the middle of the right circle. The puck trickled behind the goalie and Oduya put it in.

David Clarkson and Patrik Elias also scored for the Devils, who have won four in a row and nine of their last 11 games.

New Jersey's Martin Brodeur turned aside 30-of-32 shots and now has 548 career wins, three shy of Patrick Roy for most by a goaltender in league history.

John Mitchell scored both Toronto goals.
