The New Jersey Devils might hang on to beat Zach Parise and the Minnesota Wild on Thursday, but their former franchise forward still made an impact while soaking in the boos in Newark.

Parise was thwarted on a great shorthanded chance by Cory Schneider earlier in the game, yet he still managed to score later on, notching his 24th tally of the season:
Update: the Devils got the last laugh, although they had to sweat it. The Wild charged back to push tonight’s game into OT, yet New Jersey won 4-3 in overtime.
