Devils score 3 own goals en route to shootout loss to Ducks

ANAHEIM — Both goalies on the ice on Sunday night at Honda Center were chasing milestones of sorts. 

Anaheim Ducks’ backup goalie Ryan Miller was one win shy of surpassing John Vanbiesbrouck’s mark of 374 wins, the most for an American-born goalie.

The other American-born goalie in the game was chasing a more dubious honor: His first regular-season win in a calendar year. 

Neither goalie would reach those milestones.

Miller was injured in the third period and John Gibson became the goalie of record. The Devils, somewhat unbelievably, scored three times on their own goalie, Cory Schneider. Perhaps more unbelievably, Marcus Johansson tied it up with 58 seconds left and the Devils, who came in 0-5 in overtime, made it to a shootout.

But Ryan Kesler and Daniel Sprong scored for the Ducks in a shootout to give Anaheim a 6-5 win. 

Schneider made 35 saves and one in the shootout.
