He helped set up the Devils' final two goals, including Damon Severson's game-winner with less than two minutes remaining in the third period.

Gusev picked up two assists in a 2-1 win over San Jose on Thursday.
The 27-year-old first-year player has 35 points, including 25 assists, in 57 games this season. That's a 50-point pace over the course of a full 82-game season. Gusev has been a pleasant surprise in a dark year for the Devils.
Gusev posted an assist and five shots on net in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Hurricanes.
Gusev earned the secondary helper on Mirco Mueller's first-period tally. The 27-year-old Russian is up to 33 points (10 goals, 23 helpers), 131 shots and a minus-15 rating in 54 contests. Fantasy owners that can offset his defensive struggles could benefit from Gusev's solid scoring production. He hasn't gone more than three games in a row without a point at any time in 2019-20.
Gusev produced an assist and two shots on goal in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Lightning.
Gusev helped out on Travis Zajac's tally in the second period. The 27-year-old is on a modest three-game point streak (goal, two helpers). His first NHL season continues to be moderately successful, with 27 points, 99 shots and a minus-8 rating through 42 contests.
Gusev dished three assists, fired three shots on goal and went plus-3 in Monday's 7-1 win over the Blackhawks.
Gusev's helping hand has been on display frequently in the last week -- he's posted six assists in his last four games. The Russian reached the 20-point mark with Monday's performance, and he's added 74 shots and a minus-7 rating in 33 contests this season.
Gusev posted an assist and two PIM in Saturday's 6-4 loss to the Predators.
Gusev set up Travis Zajac's tally at 3:59 of the first period. Gusev has been fantastic recently with six assists in his last six games. For the year, the Russian winger has 14 points (five tallies, nine helpers) in 26 appearances. He doesn't add much physicality -- he's produced 12 PIM, seven hits and three blocked shots -- but the 27-year-old is beginning to adjust well on offense.
Gusev scored a goal and took four PIM in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Flames.
Gusev put the Devils ahead 2-1 with his second-period tally, but took his second minor penalty of the night three minutes later. His 12:04 in the game was lowest among Devils forwards. The Russian winger has five points and six PIM in 11 games during his first NHL season.
Gusev is expected to return to the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Jets, Chris Ryan of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Gusev has been a healthy scratch for each of the Devils' last three contests, but an injury to Jesper Bratt (upper body) has opened the door for him to return to the lineup against Winnipeg. The 27-year-old Russian will likely slot into a top-six role and a spot on one of New Jersey's power-play units Tuesday.
Gusev will be a healthy scratch for Wednesday's game against Tampa Bay, Chris Ryan of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Gusev hasn't had a poor start to his NHL career, notching three goals and four points through his first nine games, but he's still adapting to the smaller North American ice sheet, so the Devils are hoping watching Wednesday's contest from the press box will help him identify areas in which he can improve his game, particularly with his defensive zone exits and forechecking. The 27-year-old Russian should be right back in the lineup for Friday's matchup with Philadelphia.
