Despite owning a 41-15 shot advantage after three period, the Devils found themselves all square because Connecticut’s Christian Thomas scored off a one-timer at 18:05 of the first.
From there, neither team found the back of the net except for Connecticut’s Matt Gilroy, who scored the lone shootout goal.
At the end of the night, the Devils owned a 44-16 shot advantage, but went 0-for-7 on the power play. The Whale were held scoreless with the man advantage, going 0-for-3.
Jeff Frazee finished the night with 14 saves. He is now 1-1-1 on the season. At the other end, Talbot made 43 saves to improve to 3-0-0.
