Henrique helps Devils beat Penguins 3-1 for 4th straight win, snapping 5-game streak for Pitt

NEWARK, N.J. - NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Adam Henrique and Bobby Butler scored power-play goals during a 2:12 span in the third period, and the New Jersey Devils extended their winning streak to four games with a 3-1 victory over Pittsburgh on Saturday that snapped the Penguins' five-game winning streak.

Ilya Kovalchuk assisted on the late goals and defenceman Andy Greene had two assists, including the primary one on rookie Stefan Matteau's first NHL goal, as the Devils avenged a 5-1 loss to the Penguins last week.

Martin Brodeur made 24 saves and provided a little humour by chasing his stick late in the second period of his 1,200th career game. He became the first NHL goalie to play that many.

Brandon Sutter scored early for Pittsburgh, which couldn't stay out of the penalty box. The teams will play again on Sunday in Pittsburgh.

Quote of the Day

He scores 50 goals, they go in, they go in, and they go in. And I think, 'Why can't I do that?'
