Zach Parise was ready to head to the Devils' dressing room feeling robbed by another video review being conducted inside the NHL's War Room in Toronto. Most of the Devils were certain that Ryan Getzlaf scored what would've been the winning goal for the Anaheim Ducks by using a distinct kicking motion with his right skate. But Parise wasn't confident that the league would see it that way. In fact, the goal was disallowed, overturning the call on the ice and paving the way for a 3-2 shootout victory by the Devils tonight that moved them past the idle Pittsburgh Penguins into fifth place in the Eastern Conference standings. "We finally got a call in our favor from Toronto. It was nice," Parise said. "To come back and win it, it was good to get that extra point. "I thought it was going to be a goal. They called it a goal on the ice and we usually don't get calls in our favor from there (Toronto). I was surprised. I really was surprised that it got overturned." The play reminded Parise of his own goal that was disallowed in a 3-2 loss to the Islanders on Nov. 26. It was ruled that he used a kicking motion to score what would have been the tying goal with 2.1 seconds remaining in that game at the Prudential Center.
