Goals by Kane and Ladd help Jets earn come-from-behind 4-2 win over Devils

NEWARK, N.J. - Evander Kane scored a breakaway goal in the second period, and Andrew Ladd added some insurance in the third to lift the Winnipeg Jets over the New Jersey Devils 4-2 on Sunday.

Zach Bogosian scored in the first period, and Grant Clitsome had a power-play goal in the second for the Jets, who have won three of the first four of a five-game trip that concludes Tuesday in New York against the Rangers. Ondrej Pavelec made 26 saves.

Travis Zajac and Steve Bernier had goals for New Jersey, but the Devils (10-5-4) lost their fourth in five games and their second at home this season. Johan Hedberg, a late-minute replacement for Martin Brodeur, stopped 23 shots.

Brodeur left the ice in pregame warmups because of "a little soreness," the Devils said.

Quote of the Day

We have no doubt how he can play. You don't, with four teams that are left, you're not getting here without good goaltending. All great goalies left, and [Bishop] is a top-tier goaltender in this league and he's shown it.

— Lightning coach Jon Cooper on goalie Ben Bishop, who shut out the Rangers in Game 5
