Neuvirth lost track of the puck behind the net and had his head turned to the right when Crosby found it and snapped it under the goalie's left skate.
Giroux, who scored 102 points during the season, has not scored a posteason goal since 2014. The Devils led until J.T. Miller and Kucherov scored about 3 1/2 minutes apart in the first period.
